World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the agency of the United Nations, has selected NWP member Hydraloop as winner of the WIPO Global Awards Programme. Hydraloop was elected because it has developed unique, patented technology that can substantially reduce water consumption worldwide, realising a huge social impact.
Due to human behaviour and the effects of climate change, almost every region in the world now suffers from water stress. WIPO's Global Awards programme praises Hydraloop as an exceptional company that uses its intellectual property (IP) in an innovative and smart way to help solve the water crisis and improve the quality of life worldwide.
Hydraloop is a multi-award-winning company that designs and manufactures decentralised, consumer-friendly, IoT-connected, compact and scalable graywater recycling products for residential and commercial properties, reducing water consumption by up to 45 percent.
This UN award is a great recognition of the value of our intellectual property and the impact Hydraloop has in the fight against the rapidly growing global shortage of clean water. Our no filters, membranes, chemical technology and proprietary IP are unique and change the market. With Hydraloop, anyone - anywhere in the world - can take action and save water
