Orbital Systems raises $15M Series B for ‘NASA-inspired’ tech to save water when showering

Orbital Systems, a ‘clean-tech’ startup out of Sweden, has raised $15 million in Series B funding. The company’s founder and CEO Mehrdad Mahdjoubi has developed new re-purification technology, in collaboration with NASA, that significantly reduces the amount of water and energy used when taking a shower.
