AIS Water recently introduced its Australian designed and made award-winning water disinfection technology to the American market in Las Vegas.
After winning a prestigious Water-Tech Connection Exchange scholarship sponsored by WaterStart, AIS Water’s CEO Elena Gosse, and Technical Director, Blake Pearl attended the annual Channels for Innovation Summit held in Las Vegas on September 26. WaterStart accelerates the adoption of innovation in the water sector, operating from its offices in Nevada and Queensland. AIS Water took the opportunity while in the United States to meet with leaders from key business targets in Nevada.
“We are proud to assist in the growth of Queensland technology companies and provide them with the connections to get a foothold into the United States,” says WaterStart Executive Director, Nathan Allen.
“Our global network of members is seeing real benefits in the collaborative effort with technology innovators such as AIS Water to revolutionise water management practices and share innovative solutions across borders.”
The annual Channels for Innovation Summit connects water technology companies with utilities and large water consumers and aims to showcase the latest innovations deployed in the water sector which are solving critical technology challenges. The opportunity provided AIS Water with the chance to pursue its commitment to providing clean and safe swimming water to the global aquatic community.
AIS Water’s CEO, Elena Gosse, said the summit was enlightening for both AIS and attendees.
“We were quite surprised by the high use of granular chlorine in the US market, Ms Gosse explained.
“This is where we can show how our innovative, inline water disinfection technology is far superior, especially with the high levels of water hardness in areas such as Nevada.
“Thanks to WaterStart we had a wonderful opportunity to meet with international water managers, government agencies and major water consumers to show how our technology can save trillions of litres of water across the planet while keeping pool water clean and clear.”
AIS Water has been a leader in its field and has won a swathe of national and international awards in its 25-plus year history. The company has gone from being a small start-up to becoming a $9m+ business with a staff headcount of 47.
“At AIS Water, we have a laser focus on safer water disinfection which saves water,” Ms Gosse continued. “That is literally all we do, and this dedication and focus has seen our team develop some truly remarkable innovations in water disinfection.
“All of our water chlorine generators are designed and made in Brisbane at our own production facilities. Our technology has already been adopted for a wide range of commercial and residential applications across 55 countries including five-star resorts, FINA standard swimming pools, aquatic centres and large-scale water parks.“Our technology has proven popular because it eliminates the need for water dumping which is par for the course with conventional chlorine dosing and results in millions of litres of precious water being dumped every year. We genuinely believe it is part of our remit to form part of the solution to help preserve water, in turn enhancing the health and wellbeing of our planet and those who share it.”
