company has developed new revolutionary ways of purifying water in developing
countries. California-based Pure Bioscience has developed a breakthrough
platform technology called silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC), which is an
electrolytically generated source of stabilized ionic silver.The chemical
compound found to be safe, tasteless and odorless as water could eliminate the
threat of dangerous viruses, like Cholera from drinking water in only 10
minutes. The company says Africa, where cholera and other water-born diseases
are prominent stands a greater chance to benefit.
Krall, the Chief Executive Officer of Pure Bio, tells reporter Peter Clottey
from California that his company is working with several African countries to
improve the quality of water and agriculture with its new product.
develop market technology-based bio-science products that are intended to provide
solutions for numerous global health challenges including viruses such as MRSA.
Pure's proprietary high advocacy and low toxicity bioscience technologies
including its silver dihydrogen citrate representing innovative and advances in
diverse markets and lead today's global trend towards industry and consumer use
of green products, while providing competitive advantages in the advocacy and
safety side," Krall pointed out.
He said his company's new
product is a cut above the rest on the market.
"Our patented new silver
dehydrogen citrate is an electolytically generated source that stabilized ionic
cell, which formulates beautifully with other compounds. And as a platform
technology distinguishes itself from the competitors in the market place
because of its superior advocacy and reduced toxicity, and the inability, and
this is important, the inability of a bacteria to form a resistance to it," he
Krall said the product would
be most useful to most rural African communities who do not have easy access to
improved quality water supply.
"You will see this in a
variety of products because it is a platform technology so you would see it in
water purification in particular rural water purification. Picture for a person
to be able to add just several drops to a gallon of microbiologically
challenged water and have a microbiologically safe water in less than 10
minutes with no chance of overdose because there is no toxicity associated with
the product," Krall noted.
He said the product could
also find great uses in farming.
"It could also be used, as
its being used in other countries, to reduce the disease in crops like
soybeans, sugarcane, corn, and wheat by controlling the disease in these crops
and again with a non toxic product," he said.
Meanwhile, Pure Bio says
there is yet another huge application for Pure Bio, found in agriculture. Pure
Bio eliminates the threat of fungus, bacteria and blight in agriculture. This
means more food production; better, healthier food free of disease and
pesticides; more biofuels; and more opportunities for more players to use
natural resources to compete in a global economy. And it means a great deal
more for emerging economies.
Pure Bio and Silver
Dihydrogen Citrate (SDC)have changed the agricultural prospects for the
planet and for new emerging countries and economies.
Brazil offers an example of countries using SDC to improve
their agricultural production and methods and leverage the country's scientific
advantages. Brazil, a country with the largest and most successful
bio-fuel programs in the world, produces ethanol fuel from sugar cane and is
considered to have the world's first sustainable biofuels economy, enjoying 85
percent independence from gasoline. As such, the country strives to
participate in the emerging global biofuel economy.
Brazil is responsible for about 20% of the world production
of ethanol and more than 40% of the world's exports. Ethanol produced from
sugarcane is cheaper to process because it doesn't need to make the
transformation from carbohydrates to sugar as required for corn, which then
must be fermented to make ethanol.
Brazil's sugar cane is subject to particular
fungus and bacteria, which is fast, spreading and threatens entire crops.
Blight in sugar cane is very costly to control, requiring burning much of the
crop once fungus or bacteria appear. Today, PureBio is effectively
controlling blight in many of the co-ops managing Brazil's sugar cane crop with
100 percent efficacy.
