Over one billion people lack a reliable source of clean drinking water, nearly one in every seven people. Globally, nearly 3.4 million people – mostly children – die of water-related diseases annually. Despite developed municipal water treatment systems, hazards persist, largely because infection can be introduced in the downstream distribution.
RayVio UV LEDs offer the technology to install water disinfection treatment at the point of use. For example, UV LED disinfection may be applied to portable water containers and in the faucet and pipes at the dispense point. These architectures provide ubiquitous water disinfection where overall safety is improved.
