OUR MISSION

BlueGreen Water Technologies is leading the charge in helping preserve and promote life on Earth by restoring, safeguarding and optimizing the health, safety of water bodies worldwide – including their wildlife and aquatic biodiversity, ecosystems and economies – by pioneering and applying proven scientific ingenuity and deep tech solutions.
About us
BlueGreen Water Technologies

BlueGreen Water Technologies was established in order to protect the world’s most precious and endangered resource – water. Most people take for granted that clean drinkable water will always be available when needed, but this is far from reality.  As aggressively toxic bacteria (cyanobacteria/algae) steadily poison the world’s water supplies, the substance that is most critical to human, animal, and plant life is diminishing fast. BlueGreen has stepped up to stem this fatal loss.

Harnessing technology to protect our waters

We use cutting-edge technologies to selectively target and eliminate harmful cyanobacteria/algae without harming other life forms or leaving any chemical trace in the water. Our treatments rehabilitate vast tracts of water within days, restoring environmental balance and biodiversity – improving health and economies, and impacting the lives of millions of people around the world.

Our water formulations are market-approved and hard-tested in multiple markets, including Israel, the United States, China, and South Africa, and are certified internationally to meet the NSF/ANSI/CAN 60 standard for drinking water.*

*Applies to Lake Guard Blue and Oxy formulations

Our data bank solves global water challenges

By deploying cutting-edge technologies and advanced analytics to track, trace, and analyze water bodies around the world, BlueGreen is also amassing a one-of-a-kind data bank and developing the expertise to resolve pervasive global water challenges – both those we know about today and those that will present in the future.

BLUEGREEN'S DRIVING FORCE

BlueGreen was founded by seasoned scientists who have decades of experience working at the cutting-edge of environmental science and microbiological disciplines.
