Clean water technology
NANOTECHNOLOGY BASED WATER TREATMENT AND PURIFICATION SYSTEM
Our principals have spearheaded the development of a novel environmentally-friendly nanotechnology to remediate water. The nanoparticles can be specifically formulated to target and remove specific contaminates, pollutants, or even valuable elements or compounds from water. Unlike conventional water remediation technologies that utilize chemical treatments that only purify 50% to 60% of the water that they treat, the nanoparticle-based treatment process purifies and regenerates 85% to 95% of the water that it treats, resulting in significant benefits and greater cost savings to the end user.

Meetesh Patel, ESQ.
President / Managing Director
Meetesh V. Patel is an investor, entrepreneur, and C-level executive who brings more than a decade of experience in financing and building new ventures in information technologies, renewable energy, and nanotechnology.
Among Meetesh’s achievements, he is credited with leading development of the world’s first-of-its-kind technology capable of generating electricity on see-through glass windows. As President and CEO, Meetesh targeted a brand-new approach to successfully advancing the technology, away from its focus on silicon nanoparticles and towards next-gen ‘spray-on’ organic polymers. His efforts led to a research and development partnership with the University of South Florida and resulted in funding from the Florida High Tech Corridor. Under Meetesh’s leadership, the company bolstered its public image, gained investor confidence, and raised capital on preferential terms. Meetesh groomed the company for its transition to his hand-picked successor, and successfully positioned the technology for its first-ever public unveiling.
As President of a company seeking its entry into kinetic energy harvesting, Meetesh worked to invent, engineer, and prototype novel roadway-embedded systems for generating electricity from the movement of vehicles. He evolved the company’s technology from an early ‘skunkworks’ project to tactically filing foundational patents which today number in the dozens. Meetesh also identified and partnered with the world’s leading experts in energy harvesting, eventually building a fluid-driven system with few mechanical parts, smooth energy capture, and minimal payload disruption. He successfully built engineering teams, raised capital, and formed strategic partnerships for field testing the technology with Burger King®, Four Seasons Hotel, and Holiday Inn® Express.
Meetesh is a co-founder, executive, and principal of a nanotechnology venture developing and commercializing economical and environmentally friendly water treatment and purification systems. In addition to raising seed capital and building the company’s engineering team, Meetesh has acquired important underlying intellectual property to enable development of a first-of-kind water treatment system which achieves usable water recovery of up to 95% and cuts operating and capital costs by nearly one-half.
Meetesh earned his Juris Doctor degree from American University, Washington College of Law in 2000, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science with an emphasis in International Relations from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1997.
