Silivhere Technologies, Inc. designs, develops, and manufactures affordable drinking water treatment technologies to improve global health. The MadiDrop+ technology is a porous ceramic tablet that slowly releases silver ions into stored, household water over time, killing waterborne pathogens. The Jenga-block sized tablet contains just enough silver to disinfect harmful pathogens while ensuring safe consumption of water. This point-of-use water treatment solution is simple to use and requires minimal effort compared to other options on the market today.
