With new science, we want to do something novel:

Tap water that you can drink.

At Cyclopure, we want to break the cycle of water contamination from micropollutants. We guess that makes us disruptors.

We are inventors

We like inventing things that solve challenges to make life better — in this case new adsorbents that make water safe.

We’re on a mission

Our mission is to make access to drinking water affordable with tap water you can drink again. The age of single-use plastic bottles is over. We’re making water in the home safe for everyone, everywhere, without harming the environment.

We sweat the small stuff: nanoscale microtoxins

Yep, we own it. We love our cyclodextrins.

Luckily, we’re able to put our geekery to good use, thanks to organizations like the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences who have supported our efforts; developing new solutions for water quality which is one of the most urgent health challenges of today.

We are global leaders

We are a global leader in the science of targeted micropollutant removal and pioneered the first-ever use of cyclodextrin-based polymer adsorbents to safely strip away micropollutants from water. We are internationally recognized and award-winning chemists, founders of Fortune 500 companies, and seasoned executives with a passion for building and operating new technology businesses. We’ve come together because of a unique opportunity to make a difference.
