3AWater is a startup company from Kuopio, Finland established by nanotechnology and on-site analysis professionals in January 2019. We offer a portable device for measuring metal content of water on-site in real time. The technology brings great benefits compared to old-fashioned laboratory measurements. Our technology provides the results at the sampling site in just a few minutes. This results in significant savings compared to the traditional laboratory analysis, which involves on-site sampling, delivery of the samples to a laboratory and measurements carried out with expensive devices by highly trained personnel. Typically, customers wait from a few days to even weeks for results with this method.
Thanks to the real-time measurements, you can take immediate action based on the results. This provides e.g. mining companies with up-to-date information about their water quality, enabling them to ensure that only clean water is released into nature. 3AWater aims to the reduce environmental risks of industries that use large volumes of water, such as mines, by providing better monitoring tools for water management. Our real-time monitoring tools can also be used in a variety of different applications such as assessing the condition of lakes and rivers, and monitoring water purification processes and drinking water safety.
