Water stress and scarcity currently affect half of the world’s population and nearly one-third of the world’s largest groundwater systems are already in distress.
This major problem is the result of industrial products and waste that have exposed much of the industrialized world to dangerous toxins. PFAS or “Forever Chemicals” are one major example.
The multifaceted problem of global water inadequacy can be solved with cost-effective, low-power, and durable water desalination and purification technology. Today, 1% of the world’s population relies on desalination. The UN predicts that 14% will rely on desalination within the decade.
There are two barriers to widespread adoption:
• Grid limitations (mitigated with lower power systems)
• Economic barriers (overcome through cost reduction)
IONIC Water is scaling up an Enhanced Electrochemical Deionization Technology that resolves the historic shortcomings of prior generations of electrocapacitive deionization – the inability to desalinate seawater to drinking or agricultural water levels and the limited durability and useful life of the materials.
Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a family of highly toxic fluorinated compounds used in hundreds of everyday consumer products. These chemicals are persistent in the environment and in the human body – meaning they don’t break down easily and they can accumulate over time. There is evidence that exposure to PFAS even in very small concentrations can lead to dangerous health effects.
While some PFAS removal technologies already exist and are in commercial use, they are expensive to build, operate and maintain. IONIC Water Technologies has invented an innovative and safe chemical rinse technology to reduce the operational and capital cost and improve the disposal efficiency of remediating PFAS compounds from water sources and returning them to drinking water levels.
IONIC Water Technologies is engaged in developing innovative water purification and desalination technologies that will enable safe drinking and agricultural water access for the developed and developing world. Addressing natural or industrial sources of water, our technology offers lower cost, less system complexity, smaller footprint systems, that also enable less energy use and sustainable energy sources.

We are the last generation that can prevent irreparable damage to our planet.
Without a massive reduction in emissions within 10 years, billions of people will be displaced, disasters (like floods, fires, and viruses) will continue to increase, and entire ecosystems will disappear.
