eWater is the market leader in game changing, evidence based, sustainable water splitting technology for food safety and infection control in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific. At the heart of the company is a disruptive technology already replacing millions of litres of packaged chemicals each year in Australia, significantly reducing company carbon and chemical footprints. eWater solutions replace traditional packaged sanitising and cleaning chemicals with a safer, more cost effective alternative, removing the risks associated with handling wasteful, toxic packaged chemicals. Since its formation in 2007, eWater Systems has established a national blue chip client list including over 30 leading public and private hospitals, around 100 aged care facilities, childcare centres, defence bases, schools, stadiums, convention centres, food production facilities and many of the most respected restaurant groups in Australia. eWater Systems are committed to making a positive impact on our increasingly degraded environment by providing safe, sustainable, and economical alternatives to many hazardous, wasteful, expensive and ultimately unsustainable chemical products currently polluting waterways, buildings and people.
