Ahlstrom Group has partnered with Eureka Forbes Ltd. to launch a product to serve the growing needs for clean water in the Indian sub-continent.

Ahlstrom Group, headquartered in Helsinki, a manufacturer of nonwovens and specialty papers, has partnered with Eureka Forbes Ltd., Mumbai, to launch a product to serve the growing needs for clean water in the Indian sub-continent.

The device, designed and manufactured by Eureka Forbes, will be sold under the brand name AquaSure. It incorporates Ahlstrom’s Disruptor filter media, which removes a wide range of pathogens and submicron contaminants from water. The AquaSure storage water purifier removes all three types of contaminants from water - physical, chemical and microbiological - without the use of any chemicals to provide microbiologically pure and safe drinkable water.

Designed for the challenging conditions in distribution, storage and end-consumer use in developing markets like India, this technology eliminates the need to add disinfecting chemicals that raise potential public health and safety concerns. In addition, it offers consumers a simple, convenient and affordable way to purify their water, consistent with entrenched consumer habits.

The technology combines high capacity and efficiency with the filter’s low operating pressures.
