Dankovich created the Safe Water Book, a book of silver-nanoparticle filter papers that kill disease and bacteria. The paper filters are called Folia Filters. The filters are used in conjunction with the Tasita, a plastic filter that holds the paper and connects two bottles together. The filters come in the form of Safe Water Books. Each book contains 26 filters and one book provides a year of safe drinking water. Dankovich holds a B.S. in fiber science from Cornell, an M.S. in agricultural and environmental chemistry from the University of California, Davis, and a Ph.D in chemistry from McGill University. She is the Chief Technology officer and Chairwoman of Folia Water, a company she founded in 2015.
