Water treatment is essential to maintaining a healthy environment, and LG Sonic has become a pioneer in this field. In episode 118 of the Burzcast Podcast, host Razvan sits down with Yousef Yousef, the CEO of LG Sonic, to discuss the company's innovative approach to water treatment and the journey that led them to their current success.
Yousef shares how LG Sonic began, initially as LG Sound, focusing on providing a better solution for water treatment through ultrasound technology. He and his business partners, Lisa and Rick, worked tirelessly to develop and refine the technology, eventually transforming the company into LG Sonic.
During the podcast, Yousef discusses the LiceSonic project, which started in 2017 in collaboration with the governments of Norway and Romania. This project aimed to develop an innovative and environmentally friendly method to control sea lice in open finfish production. The technology has been widely adopted, with many Norwegian salmon in hypermarkets potentially treated with LG Sonic technologies.
Yousef explains why companies should stop using chemicals for water treatment and switch to ultrasound technology. Even in small quantities, chemicals can lead to slow toxicity buildup, harming aquatic ecosystems. Ultrasound, conversely, is a more sustainable and eco-friendly option that effectively treats water without the adverse side effects of chemicals.
Yousef also talks about the buoys and monitoring stations deployed by LG Sonic to measure various water parameters. Thanks to a winch system, these stations have been enhanced to measure water quality multiple times per hour and at much deeper levels. Local authorities, private companies, and individuals can benefit from these stations to make informed decisions regarding water treatment.
When asked about the differences between LG Sonic and other companies offering ultrasonic water treatment solutions, Yousef highlights the company's dedication to innovation, research, and development. Their custom-developed ultrasound technology and monitoring systems ensure effective water treatment with minimal environmental impact.
Yousef shares valuable tips for starting entrepreneurs, emphasizing the importance of setting clear goals, staying persistent, and continuously adapting to new challenges.
