Mesofilter announces technology to reduce arsenic in drinking water

US developer and manufacturer of nanotechnology to filter heavy metals in water, Mesofilter Inc., has revealed that global public health organization NSF International has certified the first drinking water pitcher to reduce arsenic to NSF/ANSI 53, an American National Standard for drinking water treatment units.

This certification verifies that Mesofilter’s new product, the NanoNose Water Purifier, filters the water to reduce arsenic to below the health advisory levels set by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and World Health Organization (WHO). The water filter technology also removes toxic lead and mercury in water.
 
According to Liangjie Dong, CEO Mesofilter and NanoNose inventor, arsenic in drinking water threatens public health in the US and worldwide. The company’s current water filter technology, for use in both home and industries, removes arsenic, lead, and mercury in water. Its focus is on developing next-generation nanotechnology and products to ensure that people around the world can access safe and affordable drinking water.
 
The Mesofilter arsenic filtration technology was researched, developed, and refined over a period of 12 years at the University of Hawaii with the collaboration of China Medical University in Shenyang, China.
