A seasoned business leader, Manoj Singh has worked over 25 years in the technology industry. In addition to holding master’s degrees in both mechanical engineering and business administration, he has extensive experience in automotive and cleantech. As the founder and chief executive officer of Acuva Technologies Inc., Manoj specializes in technology commercialization, market and business development, strategic partnership formation, business and strategy planning.
Headquartered in British Columbia, Acuva Technologies has been one the leading ultra-violet LED disinfectant technology companies in the world since its founding in 2014. As CEO, Manoj has increased the staff to 28 people with offices in Europe, China, Canada. Using ultra-violet LED as the radiation source, the company creates water disinfection systems, which are primarily used to purify drinking water. Since they do not require a lot of power or maintenance, the systems have solved the problem of drinking water globally and are now sold throughout 20 countries.
Recently, Acuva has also ventured into surface and air disinfection. Rather than trying to filter or block microorganisms with cloth or other materials, the company is developing a face mask with a built-in UV-LED disinfection system that eliminates incoming micro-organisms like bacteria and viruses in real-time as the user is breathing the air in. The new product will be available in August/September 2020.
According to Manoj, his mission for Acuva is to grow the sustainable technology company while continuing to make the world a better place. He and his team members are dedicated to creating new systems and healthcare products that will offer the highest performance at the lowest cost.
