HaloSource launches water purifying product in Indian market, claims can kill 99.9% viruses

HaloSource, launched astrea, its first consumer-facing brand, to the Indian market recently. It has been selling its patented HaloPure disinfection technology to consumer product companies such as Eureka Forbes in India since 2007, the company press release said.

The directors of the Company believe that, compared to other personal drinking water products available in India, astrea® pitchers and bottles will be a marked step in technological innovation. The astrea purifying pitcher can be used as a standalone solution to ensure that drinking water is germ-free – at home, at school and student dorms, when traveling, or anywhere portability is required. The pitcher features disposable cartridges that offer three-stage purification, which it claims will kill more than 99.9 percent of viruses and bacteria, including E. coli and norovirus.
