Acuva Technologies, based in British Columbia, Canada, is the world leader in the design, manufacture and integration of advanced UV-LED water purification technology solutions. Acuva’s proprietary technology, developed in partnership with the University of British Columbia, purifies drinking water with disinfection rates of 99% or higher to ensure health and safety.

This first step saves 6 billion single-use water bottles from garbage dumps and landfills, making a significant difference in the war against plastic waste in the Philippines.”
