Dr Rajiv Bhanot is a medical practitioner who moved on to pursue the path of social entrepreneurship after having spent some years working in a public hospital. Recognising the critical urgency surrounding water poverty, he led a team in developing a water purification system based on British Military water filtration and sterile water technology, which was named the H2GO system.
H2GO filters raw water from any source and produces sterile drinking water within seconds. It is helping to transform lives in rural, remote and neglected corners of the globe, where people suffer from the lack of access to safe and clean water.
Months after its launch in 2013, H2GO systems were installed in more than 3,000 villages in ASEAN countries, supplying drinking water daily to more than 500,000 villagers.
Not wishing to rest on his laurels, Dr Bhanot worked on an improved version of the system.
Since then, he has collaborated with strategic partners to eradicate water poverty around the world. Currently, this technology is the main household supplier of clean and safe drinking water to 1.5 million people globally.
Dr. Rajiv Bhanot is Managing Director of H2O Global, a technology-based company that works on providing cutting-edge solutions to water filtration. H2GO Global has spent many years developing their patented British nanotechnology that has the ability to convert any source of filthy contaminated water into safe and sterile drinking water without the use of any electricity, chemical additives or ultraviolet treatments.
