Sharon Kleyne Praises Deepika Kurup’s Water Invention

Sharon Kleyne Touts TED Talk Star Deepika Kurup. Sharon Kleyne Celebrates Water Research of Teen Phenom.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, wants everyone to experience a new, healthy Water Life Science® lifestyle and visit for more information. “Everyone should understand that water vapor keeps you alive,” Kleyne said. She added that people should do all they can to slow down their body’s water evaporation. That means drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water each day and learning to breathe properly. “Slow down the evaporation process,” Kleyne urged. “Live longer. Be healthier.” Kleyne also stressed that new water research is imperative if we hope to find relief from the many diseases and illnesses that currently afflict people all over the planet. “People are dying for lack of clean water,” said Kleyne.

That is why Sharon Kleyne is so excited about the work of Deepika Kurup, already an internationally renowned inventor, scientist and clean water advocate. Kurup was recognized in 2012 as “America’s Top Young Scientist”. Two years later, Kurup received the United States Environmental Youth Award, representing the U.S. in Stockholm, Sweden at the international Stockholm Junior Water Prize. A 2015 National Geographic Explorer Award Winner at the Google Science Fair, Kurup was also named as one of Forbes’ 2015 30 Under 30 in Energy ( Presently, she is CEO and founder of Catalyst for World Water, which deploys the technology she’s developed in water-scarce areas.

Sharon Kleyne, the nation’s foremost water advocate and host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice America, has long declared that the shackles on water research must come off. “Kurup’s work,” said Kleyne, “is exactly what we hope to see emerging from young people around the world. Her work in developing a new and inexpensive method for clean water using solar power is inspiring and potentially beneficial to billions of people.”

Deepika Kurup created a photocatalytic composite for water purification consisting of titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, hollow glass microspheres and Portland cement. After three years of refinement, Kurup produced a pervious photocatalytic composite that uses sand, TiO2, Portland cement and silver nitrate. This composite showed a 98% reduction in total coliform bacteria immediately after filtration. Exposing the filtered water to sunlight with a photocatalytic composite disc resulted in 100% inactivation of total coliform bacteria in just 15 minutes. “What this means,” said Kleyne, “is that Kurup’s filtered water is often cleaner than the drinking water we receive through our pipes. That’s extraordinary.”

Sharon Kleyne recommends Deepika Kurup’s TED talk, which you can access here “Deepika Kurup’s work is a great example of what we can achieve through education,” Kleyne said, “and it’s a huge step forward in current water research.”
