Portaqua in Roanoke Times

One of the member companies in VT KnowledgeWorks, Portaqua, will soon be launching its portable system that purifies and packages drinking water. There’s some coverage at the Roanoke Times.

Roughly 5 feet by 5 feet and 1,000 pounds, the system can take untreated city water or water from rivers, lakes and oceans and produce between 3,000 and 10,000 gallons of potable water a day. The units can also bottle the water.

Quite a timely product with some of the recent natural disasters occurring both in the US and around the world. Portaqua is a great example of some of the diverse technology advances that will be coming out of both the VT CRC and VT KnowledgeWorks.
