The BOSAQ team has engineered the SolarAQ, a long-lasting, cost-effective, and durable water treatment system designed to treat any water source including sea, fresh, rain, and brackish water. The design requires a compact size and low power consumption as it is self-sustaining through a solar array. ​​


The SolarAQ requires a UV LED disinfection system that allows for renewable or battery power options and had a compact footprint to enable the system to be portable. The SolarAQ is equipped with robust membrane technology along with the cutting-edge AquiSense PearlAqua Micro™. A UV-C LED solution was chosen due to its

  • potential to be driven from a renewable/battery voltage source
  • compact footprint
  • lightweight
