Vision

AguaClara at Cornell researches, invents, designs the next generation of sustainable water treatment technologies. Our goal is that partner organizations will use these technologies to serve hundreds of millions of people with clean, safe drinking water. Our technologies are simple to operate, built with locally available materials, and don't use electricity. Because of this, facilities built using AguaClara technologies cost less to build and operate than conventional mechanized plants.

Impact to Date

AguaClara treatment plants deliver quality water that exceeds World Health Organization health guidelines (turbidity below 5 NTU, chlorine residual from 0.3-1.0 mg/L, and zero faecal bacterial contamination) without electricity.

Community-based water service organizations equipped with AguaClara technology have increased revenue by over 100% by providing high quality water service, allowing them to be financially sustainable.
