GEORGE TOWN, July 5 — The badly polluted Sungai Pinang here has been treated with a green technology for the past two years, says Infinite Acquisition Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Khalil Hasan.
He said the company, based in Seri Kembangan, Selangor was given a three-year contract by the state government to carry out the river restoration project.
The green technology, known as iQPR (Infinitesima Quantum Persistent Reflection), was implemented in Sungai Pinang since 2014 to treat and improve its water level from Class IV (very dirty) to Class III and II (clean).
Khalil said prior to its implementation, the river was very dirty with thick, murky water, unbearable stench and could cause itchiness on the skin.
“After several months of using such technology, the Sungai Pinang became even better than before. The water is a bit clearer and in fact, there are more fish than before.
“This technology is not a tool but an approach in using mineral water which has been programmed to create tiny molecules that will react actively by breaking the polluted water molecules through water current.
“The water of this polluted river acts like a ‘net’ and traps all the dirt. Once the technology is poured into the river, it will break the (desired) molecules as it can move up to 7,000 metres per second,” he said.
There are 13 main stations scheduled to launch the mineral water, he said, adding that based on the data obtained, it showed that almost 60 per cent of Sungai Pinang was now at Class II. — Bernama
