IIT Delhi start up launched an antiviral water container which releases active copper

Mixing traditional science with nanotechnology, IIT Delhi-incubated startup NanoSafe Solutions has developed a range of antimicrobial i.e. antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal water storage containers and launched it as "AqCure", which is based on the inherent antimicrobial properties of copper. AqCure is a patented technology in which active nano-copper is released in a sustainable manner from a polymer matrix. The released copper makes the outer and inner surface of the container antimicrobial, reducing transmission of microbes upon direct contact, and making the stored water microbiologically safe.
