By Mike CernovichThe Wall Street Post”It’s not an effective water purifier,” says Amazon Water Technologies’ David Dickson.
Amazon’s Water Purifiers (WPMs) are meant to purify water by heating the water to a temperature above about 70 degrees Celsius, but Dickson says that’s not enough.
“They’re not going to purifying 100 percent of the water you need to,” he says.
Dickson says the company has been using these WPMs for a few years.
“But they’re not being used at a rate that they should be, especially for our customer base, because of the size of the customer base,” he tells The Wall St. Post.
Drew McArthur, the vice president of research and product development for WPM, says the technology is used by many water purifying companies.
He says it’s not being adopted for water purifications because of environmental concerns.”WPM’s are being deployed for a variety of purposes, but we have seen the technology being deployed in water purifyers to help with our customers’ water consumption,” McArthur says.
“It’s just that the amount of water required to purifier systems to actually achieve that water quality has increased exponentially.”WPM, which is also working with the US Environmental Protection Agency to improve water quality in the country, says that its products are not intended to clean water.
“It is not designed to remove water from water and it is not intended for that purpose,” McAvsar says.
“Water purification is not meant to remove carbon dioxide from the water, it is intended to remove dissolved solids from the liquid,” he adds.
“WPM does not purify, purify to remove contaminants from the groundwater, or purify for the purpose of cleaning water.”
The EPA says it is “monitoring the impact” of the WPM on water quality and has asked Amazon to remove its products from use in the US.
Amazon, which does not disclose how many WPM it has deployed, has also faced criticism over its use of the technology in water-purification systems.
In an internal email, Amazon’s head of water resources, Dan Ariely, wrote that the company’s water system uses about two billion gallons of water each day.
But the email shows that Amazon has only used two million gallons, which amounts to about 10 percent of that.
“In order to meet water consumption targets, the water systems we deploy in the U.S. are utilizing technology that has been designed to meet our water demand,” Arieley wrote.
Amazon says it has implemented water purifies for several other products, including its water filters, but it does not specify which ones.
Amazon declined to comment.
According to Arieler, the company does not use WPM for the same reasons that it has never used it in water systems.
“There is a clear need for WPNs,” he wrote in an email.
“The problem is we don’t know how to design them to be successful and we don.
I can only recommend that Amazon make WPM a mandatory part of its water management systems.”
Amazon has also been criticized for its reliance on imported water sources, which are often contaminated with chemicals and are not as clean as those in the United States.
Dickson of WPM says Amazon has been working to reduce its reliance in the past few years by investing in water filtration.
“Our customers want us to make sure that we do not use imported water and we’ve tried to do that,” he told The Wall Sta.
“I’m not convinced we’re getting it done.”WMO says it will soon be introducing a new product to address the problem of imported water contamination.
It says the new product will be more effective than existing products.
