NSF International is a leading global organization that provides standards development, product certification, auditing, education and risk management for public health and safety.

NanoH2O uses advanced nanotechnology to increase membrane permeability by 50-
100% over conventional membranes, while matching best-in-class salt rejection. Greater
permeability translates to increased membrane productivity by decreasing energy consumption
which is the major cost of desalination.

QuantumFlux membrane modules are produced at NanoH2O's Los Angeles-based manufacturing facility and are available in an 8-in diameter spiral-wound configuration that fits into industry-standard pressure vessels.

"This is a mark of distinction within our industry that validates the safety and viability of our nanocomposite membrane technology in the production of drinking water," said Jeff Green, CEO of NanoH2O. "I am very proud of our world-class product development and manufacturing operations team who worked diligently to ensure our product's compliance to NSF 61 Standards. With our recently announced commercial launch, this achievement is another testament to the global commercial applicability of our technology."
