STAR Water Solutions
Based in Australia, STAR Water designs and supplies custom bio-filtration media for stormwater, industrial/agriculture runoff and groundwater reuse applications. Through WaterStart, STAR Water and the Desert Research Institute (DRI) have established a collaborative partnership to characterize locally available materials in Nevada, identify material performance efficacy, and establish manufacturing and distribution channels within Nevada for the development of recycled and sustainably procured bio-filters. Upon project completion, STAR Water Solutions will continue to support DRI faculty through a long-term agreement for lab testing services. STAR Water Solutions also projects the creation of approximately 30 jobs through local manufacturing and commercialization over time.
