KOTA Territory startup aims to make drinking water better worldwide

Posted:

Water covers 70 percent of the world's surface but only one percent is consumable.

One KOTA Territory company is hoping to change that.

CalxAqua (kalks-Aqua) is researching and developing ways to make normally undrinkable water, safe to drink.

Founder, Mat Peabody says he plans to partner with Pete Lien and Sons to build a standalone company that will sell the technology to municipalities and water treatment operations.

CalxAqua has been using South Dakota School of Mines as a home base but will soon move to a new building.

Peabody says, "it's a very good opportunity for Rapid City and think it's a good example of what can happen when academia, government, and industry work together.

CalxAqua won first prize as well as $20000 dollars at the Governor Giant Vision competition.
