Investors Welcome !
Ur-Water, LLC. is a Start-Up company formed by some of the former students and staff of Professor Anderson. Funding for advancing our technology has largely come from Federal Grants and Projects. Recently, we have developed several prototypes some of which are in the hands of the private sector. We are looking for investment capital and for new customers who share our philosophy concerning the importance of water and our dedication to producing the latest and best technology for its remediation and reuse.

A Bit of History
Sunset over Lake Mendota -
the most studied lake in the world and home of Limnology - The Physical, Chemical and Biological Study of Lakes.
Our Ur-Water, LLC company had its foundation in Professor Anderson's Sol Gel Laboratories of the Environmental Chemistry and Technology Program - formerly the Water Chemistry Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In these laboratories were created the nanoporous oxide coatings that are used in our technology. These laboratories were located on the shores of Lake Mendota in front of the pier you see in this picture. This lake has been an inspiration for our work in the area of water technologies!
September 2008, UR-Water begins its life in an LLC status.
February 2009, First Prototype System is Developed
October 2010, Ur-Water Signs licensing agreement with the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation over US Patent 8,216,445 issued 2012.
March 2011, Ur-Water Signs an Agreement of Cooperation with Proingesa an engineering company located in Valladolid (Spain), to introduce our technology products in the Spanish market.
July 2012, US Patent 8,216,445 issues on our unique CDI process
February 2013, Ur-Water signs three-year contract with US Navy Spawars to test a new prototype for removal of heavy metals and trihalomethanes.
May 2015, Ur-Water sells new prototype to Soil Net, Oregon Wisconsin for use in Industrial Water Treatment.
May 2016, Contracted by a division of the Office of Naval Research for
a water treatment research device for a wide range of issues at Naval
Jan 2017, Office of Naval Research project in final systems testing.
Aug 2018 New Contract with Spawars to Develop 3rd Gen. CDI Systems
Oct 2018 Shipment of prototype to California for field testing
