Klearia's PANDa Project Earns Solar Impulse Foundation's Efficient Solution Label
Klearia, a pioneer in innovative laboratory technologies, is thrilled to announce that its groundbreaking project, PANDa, has received the prestigious Solar Impulse Foundation's Efficient Solution Label. This recognition underscores PANDa's transformative impact on water analysis and its pivotal role in environmental sustainability and economic efficiency.
PANDa: Revolutionizing Water Analysis
PANDa, short for Portable Analyzer for Neglected Drinking water Analytes, is a portable and automated laboratory designed to detect harmful heavy metals in water. This innovative technology addresses both ecological and economic challenges. Unlike traditional water analysis methods, PANDa offers real-time results within just two hours, compared to the days or even weeks typically required by conventional laboratory techniques. Moreover, PANDa is user-friendly and doesn't necessitate a specialized laboratory environment or analytical expertise.
Klearia's unique approach to PANDa leverages Lab-on-a-Chip technology, which has been successfully used in medical diagnostics. What sets PANDa apart is its use of reusable materials, eliminating the need for disposable components and significantly reducing environmental impact. This development reflects Klearia's commitment to on-site, real-time water analysis for industrial applications.
Environmental and Financial Benefits
The adoption of PANDa brings numerous advantages, both environmentally and financially:
Real-time Analysis: PANDa provides rapid results, enabling swift decision-making compared to traditional laboratory analysis.
Accessibility: Anyone can perform heavy metal analysis using PANDa, eliminating the need for a specialized laboratory environment or analytical skills.
Increased Treatment Solution Lifespan: The use of PANDa extends the lifespan of treatment solutions by 15%.
Reduced Chemical Usage: PANDa reduces chemical reactant usage for micropollutant analysis by 20 times.
Quick Return on Investment: Businesses can expect a payback within one year thanks to process savings.
Treatment Cost Savings: PANDa offers a 15% reduction in treatment costs.
The Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label
The Solar Impulse Foundation, led by Bertrand Piccard, known for the first solar flight around the world, has undertaken a commendable mission to identify and promote 1000 Solutions that protect the environment profitably. The Foundation focuses on helping individuals find efficient Solutions, assisting companies and public authorities in achieving their environmental goals, and encouraging investment in clean technologies.
The Efficient Solution Label, awarded by the Solar Impulse Foundation, aims to spotlight existing solutions that are both environmentally friendly and economically viable. This label signifies that the product, service, or process effectively combines credible environmental and economic performance while outperforming mainstream options in its market.
The evaluation for the Efficient Solution Label follows a strict process, assessed by external, independent Experts. A key criterion for this recognition is that the solution must provide environmental benefits and contribute to specific Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Additionally, the solution must be either already commercialized or aiming to be within five years.
Klearia is proud to have PANDa receive the Solar Impulse Foundation's Efficient Solution Label, a testament to our commitment to environmental sustainability and innovative water analysis technology.
