Established in 2015 by IIT(BHU),Varanasi alumni, Aquvio is a leading water purifier Startup, recognised by "Startup India Standup India".
Leveraging rich technical expertise and a robust academia association, we develop water purification technology solutions tailored to your requirements.
Aquvio is currently incubated at the Malviya Centre for Innovation,Incubation & Entrepreneurship,MCIIE TBI, IIT(BHU) Varanasi, giving us direct access to the leading authorities and experts in India, and state-of-the-art research infrastructure of the campus.
Aquvio have built Cost and Energy saving Reverse Osmosis based water purifier by minimising the waste-water generated
The current reverse osmosis based water purifiers when fed 4 litres of water, waste nearly 3 litres of water and produces 1 litre i.e. around 20-30% recovery. The waste water just runs in the drain. This has become a big pain point.
We built this innovative technology which gives around 70% recovery of product water. When fed with 4 litres of water produces nearly 3 litres of product water and rejects nearly 1 litre water. Aquvio have reduced the power consumption and production cost per litre by half. The duty cycle has also been increased to 800 litres per day capacity as opposed to a regular 500 litre per day capacity. This is with a lower power capacity of 84 watts, and a 50 per cent reduction in water wastage. With the mineral concentration in their product, we also meet the required water quality standards.
The current systems will take 2660 litres of water to generate 800L of potable water. Considering the cost associated with ground water extraction, transportation of water to overhead tank, storage, Municipal waste water and energy(power) in this region, the total cost comes out to be INR 0.58/ litre. Aquvio provides solution by reducing the cost to INR 0.29/Litre and the same quantity of water can be generated for 1150 litres of feed water.
Aquvio have reduced the water wastage and energy consumption by 50%. Aquvio is saving 1500 Litres of water every day, INR 1L annually of customers with a payback period of 15 months contributing huge to the economy of the country.
