CycloPure Adds Qualcomm Co-Founder White To Board

Encinitas-based CycloPure, which is developing technology to purify water of micropollutants, has named Qualcomm co-founder Harvey White to its board of directors. White also was Chairman and CEO of Leap Wireless, the parent company of Cricket Wireless. White also is founder of (SHW)2 Enterprises, and serves on the boards of ViaSat and the Brain Corporation. CycloPure is developing technology which removes the trace pharmaceuticals, pesticides, detergents, and cosmetics, and other organic compounds which still remain in water after conventional water treatment--but have been shown to still cause ill effects on both people and the environment. CycloPure is led by CEO Frank Cassou.
