AquiSense’s PearlAqua Deca awarded ‘Solar Impulse Efficient Solution’ label
AquiSense Technologies LLC of Erlanger, KY, USA (which designs and manufactures water, air and surface disinfection systems based on UV-C LEDs) says that – following an assessment performed by external independent experts and based on verified standards – its PearlAqua Deca (launched last September, and claimed to be the first water disinfection platform to utilize UV-C LEDs for point-of-entry applications) has been awarded the ‘Solar Impulse Efficient Solution’ label, which is awarded to innovative products that show economic profitability while also protecting the environment.
PearlAqua Deca hence joins the #1000solutions challenge, an initiative by the Solar Impulse Foundation to select solutions that meet high standards in profitability and sustainability and present them to decision-makers to fast-track their implementation.
The PearlAqua Deca was assessed by a pool of independent experts according to five criteria covering the three main topics of ‘Feasibility’, ‘Environmental’ and ‘Profitability’. All labelled solutions are part of the #1000solutions portfolio that will be presented to decision-makers in business and government by Solar Impulse Foundation chairman Bertrand Piccard. The aim of this initiative is to encourage the adoption of more ambitious environmental targets and fast-track the implementation of these solutions on a large scale.
The ‘Solar Impulse Efficient Solution’ label is one of the first labels for positive impact businesses bringing together protection of the environment and financial viability. The label serves as an award for clean and profitable solutions.
The Solar Impulse Foundation aims to identify clean, efficient and profitable solutions in order to accelerate their implementation and the transition to a sustainable economy. Through to the awarding of a label with high standards of sustainability and profitability, the Foundation says it can support political and economic decision-makers in their efforts to achieve their environmental targets and encourage them to adopt more ambitious energy regulations, necessary for implementation at large-scale of these solutions in the market.
