An article in the Buffalo News reports a UB startup, Sunny Clean Water, has found a quick way to transform how potable water gets to people in developing countries or in areas stricken by natural disasters like earthquakes or hurricanes, and interviews Matt Singer, CEO of the startup and a UB graduate student in electrical engineering.

Sunny Clean Water was one of six upstate companies to present their clean technology to investors, industry professionals and others at the Rochester Demo Day. Others included firms from Cornell University, Rochester Institute of Technology, Syracuse University, SUNY Polytechnic Institute and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
