844 million people do not have safe access to clean drinking water. We want to change that. And as quickly as possible.
This is why we collect donations and make our innovative water filters available to those in need. Why are our filters special? They do not need any electrical energy, function without chemicals, are inexpensive to produce, have a long service life and are proven to remove 99.9999 % of all bacteria. The retention rate for viruses is also extremely high. In this way we can make contaminated water drinkable.
A brief introduction to our products:
The AQQAcube can be used for at least twelve months and filters 400 litres of water per day with an operating time of 8 hours. The filter must be serviced after six months. This is done by cleaning and testing the filter plates. In case of defects, the water filter can be replaced modularly - a long-lasting and cost-effective concept. The AQQAcube costs 1070 euros. It saves 96,000 plastic bottles within one year.
The AQQAbag can be used for a guaranteed six months and saves around 720 PET bottles during this period. We distribute our AQQAbag on site free of charge and pay out a small bonus when we return it after six months and reply to a feedback form. In this way, we prevent uncycled plastic waste and receive valuable feedback for the further development of our products. An AQQAbag costs 35 euros. It can filter four litres of water in eight hours of operation.
Our AQQAsystem is a modular system. Depending on the local conditions, it can produce up to 100,000 litres of water filtration capacity per day.

In order to bridge the time of the Corona pandemic and to help people in need without travelling to affected areas despite the worldwide travel restrictions, we have decided to produce videos explaining our filters.
