WHAT WE DO

WHAT WE DO

Solute Smart is a custom engineering company regarding refrigeration systems, industrial water treatment, and general filtration technology.  Solute Smart™ focuses on water purification systems using a powerful & proven disinfectant that also removes any residual oxidant, treating industrial waste streams to achieve zero liquid waste discharge, and safely disposing of brines to capture valuable minerals.

WHY IT MATTERS

WHY IT MATTERS

A vast array of pharmaceuticals — including antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones — have been found in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans.

83 percent of tap water worldwide contains microplastics, according to an in-depth study by State University of New York at Fredonia. The United States has the highest presence: 94 percent of U.S. tap water is contaminated with microplastics (7). Microplastics have also found their way into bottled water. Further research discovered that microplastics were found in 93 percent of 11 popular water bottle brands around the world (3). 

Perchlorate in the environment is a health concern because it can disrupt the thyroid’s ability to produce hormones needed for normal growth and development. Besides its potential to cause endocrine system and reproductive problems, perchlorate is considered a “likely human carcinogen” by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Some 11 million Americans live in areas where concentrations of perchlorate in public drinking water supplies are significantly higher than what is considered safe.
