Bluewater launches its residentia­l and commercial water purifiers, sustainabl­e bottles in UAE and GCC at Expo 2020 Dubai

Bluewater today offers a consumer-focused portfolio of water purifiers


WATER PURIFIER Bluewater, a global innovator of premium water purificati­on technologi­es and sustainabl­e bottles, launched its marketlead­ing solutions across the UAE and GCC region at a combined press event and water symposium in the Swedish Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai attended by leading local dignitarie­s including Mr Nasser Mohd Hussain bin Lootah, EVP, Generation (P&W), Dubai Electricit­y & Water Authority (DEWA), business people from the Horeca industry and a larger number of local media.

Themed ‘Investing In Our Planet and The Water We Drink’, the launch symposium was co-hosted by Bluewater and the company’s exclusive Middle East distributo­r, NIA, a leading supplier of world-class HVAC solutions, home living appliances, and health and wellness focused consumer electronic­s and home appliances brands across the GCC and Levant region.

“We are proud at Bluewater to make our health and lifestyle-enhancing, hyper-efficient water purificati­on solutions and premium bottles more accessible throughout the UAE and GCC,” said Bengt Rittri, founder and CEO of Bluewater. Bluewater water purifiers harness patented secondgene­ration reverse osmosis technology called SuperiorOs­mosis to remove virtually all known pollutants from tap water, including lead, bacteria, pesticides, medical residues, chemicals, micro-plastics, and lime-scale.

Kamran Khan, CEO of NIA, said: “We are pioneering an exciting new future of water for people with this launch of Bluewater’s water purifiers and sustainabl­e bottles. And the timing could not be more perfect with Dubai’s leadership setting a new sustainabi­lity course with its newly announced initiative­s to reduce the need for or singleuse plastic bottles.”

Khan praised the new ‘Dubai i Can’ initiative launched recently by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum,

Crown Prince of Dubai, whereby water stations have been installed at key locations in Dubai to reduce the use of plastic water bottles across the e Emirate.

“Bluewater has put ending the need for single use plastic bottles at the very heart of its business mission and innovating a unique ecosphere with its water purifiers and premium re-useable bottles designed to help consumers quit uit single-use plastic bottles,” said Haleh Nia, Chief Transforma­tion on Officer. She added Bluewater is a brand whose mission and values of sustainabi­lity are perfectly aligned with NIA’s and demonstrat­e it is possible to build reuseabili­ty into business models.

Bluewater CEO Bengt Rittri stressed his company is committed to further developing technologi­es that deliver people clean water they can trust alongside solutions like environmen­tally friendly re-useable bottles, localized micro-bottling systems that end the need for transporti­ng throwaway plastic bottles, and emergency first-response kits and vehicles for natural catastroph­e and conflict zones, for example.

Bengt Rittri added: “Plastic pollution is headline news, but it is only part of the bigger water problem. In 2022, we live in a world where few on the planet can take having access to safe, greattasti­ng water for granted. Around the world, various studies have shown that millions of people are drinking tap water that includes an invisible toxic cocktail made up of chemical, microplast­ic, and other contaminan­ts linked to cancer, brain damage, and additional health issues.”

Rittri noted that Bluewater today offers a consumer-focused portfolio of water purifiers, ranging from units for smaller households such as the entrylevel Cleone to its mid-size Spirit and top—of-the range Pro purifiers for larger homes and commercial applicatio­ns such as HORECA environmen­ts and medical and dental surgeries.” Rittri is a Swedish environmen­tal entreprene­ur who earlier founded Blueair, an air purificati­on company later acquired by Unilever. Since 2013 he has forged Bluewater into a purpose- driven water company providing leading-edge water purificati­on technology solutions for homes, businesses, and public dispensing.
