En Gibton’s products are based on a novel proprietary technology for the adsorption of water contaminants by micelle-clay complexes.
The complexes have a very large surface area per weight, contain large hydrophobic parts, and have an excess of positive charge.
They are very well suited for the adsorption of anionic organic molecules such as herbicides, humic acid, dissolved organic matter, antibiotics, perchlorates, and ferric cyanide. They can remove chlorine-resistant microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites (e.g.. cryptosporidium and giardia).
En Gibton's technology is protected by patents in the United States, in Europe (United Kingdom), and in Israel.
The technology is approved for the purification of potable water by the Israeli Ministry of Health.
