RIVER EDGE, NJ, APRIL 24, 2017 -- Nephros Inc. (OTCQB: NEPH) (the "Company"), a commercial stage medical device company that develops and sells high performance liquid purification ultrafilters, and WorldWater & Solar Technologies Inc., a leader in integrated solar platform technology that uses sunshine to drive motors and pumps in large-scale irrigation and municipal water delivery systems, jointly announced today that they have signed a partnership agreement to incorporate Nephros ultrafilters into their solar powered drinking water systems.
WorldWater's power management and interconnection technology enables the development of utility scale solar electric parks that can operate large water and communication applications. The patented technology has been implemented in water projects on and off the grid, in locations around the world. Nephros ultrafilters will be incorporated into the drinking water systems to block potentially harmful waterborne bacteria and viruses, providing additional reassurance to end users.
"By integrating Nephros ultrafilters into our solar powered drinking water systems, WorldWater continues to provide its customers with unique capabilities that leverage our solar power drive technology," said Quentin T. Kelly, Chairman and CEO of WorldWater.
"We are very excited about our partnership with WorldWater and an additional opportunity to help protect people from potentially contaminated water sources," said Shane Sullivan, Nephros Director of North American Sales. "We are constantly looking for ways to leverage our products' water safety capabilities outside of the medical space. WorldWater's drinking water systems driven by their sophisticated solar power control technology, enabling operations in remote areas of the world, is an ideal fit for our products."
