The Xyla Water filter is designed utilising the natural plant tissue xylem. Xylem is a porous tissue in plants that conducts fluids throughout the plant body. This property has been tested on several species of plants and certain species of pine trees were found to be the best. When treated in a special manner with water and alcohol a small filter made from this pine tree can reject more than 99.9% of bacteria and protozoa. No electricity, no power, no complicated raw materials required.
We are working closely with MIT team who developed this technology to commercialise this and bring it to market.
The filter consists of two main parts, a tube and a screw on/screw off the cartridge. The cartridges are basically the filter and one cartridge can filter up to 60-80 liters with a flow rate of 3 liters per hour. It filters 99.99% of Bacteria. Xyla’s water filter is capable of filtering 4800 liters a year for a meager cost of $10 for a year — enough water for a family of seven. The upfront cost for the basic filter? Only $3!
