Silivhere Technologies


Silivhere Technologies provides an effective point-of-use water disinfection solution at a low cost-point to individual users and organizations that work in communities with decentralized water infrastructure. The solution is the MadiDrop technology, “Madi” being the Tshivenda South African word for “water.”

Silivhere Technologies brought the MadiDrop+ to market in the Spring of 2018. It is a small, reusable ceramic tablet that releases silver ions into water at a constant rate, eliminating bacteria such as E. coli and V. cholera, and significantly reducing the presence of viruses (eg: Adenovirus, Rotavirus) and protozoan pathogens (eg: Cryptosporidium, Giardia).
