It’s called the HydroPack™ — a paper-thin pouch that overnight can turn dirty water into a flavored, healthy drink. In the hands of children following a disaster such as the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, they were a “little package of happiness”. Developed by Hydration Technology Innovations (HTI), the HydroPack™ uses a membrane made from Eastman cellulose acetate that is the heart of HTI’s proprietary Forward Osmosis technology. “Forward Osmosis is how water goes from the ground and mud and dirt up through the roots, up through a tree, up to the leaves and the fruit of a tree,” explains Keith Lampi, vice president and chief operating officer for HTI.
