Globally 80% of wastewater is currently dumped untreated, polluting our environment. To tackle the issues, regulators are increasing restrictions for untreated discharge.
As a result, industries are scrambling to find solutions to deal with their wastewater. In most cases, companies are forced to pay £100,000's a year for trucks to collect the wastewater and transport it to specialist treatment facilities.
Additional pressures from energy price increases create a difficult environment.
The onsite wastewater-to-energy solution removes high transportation costs and enables users to meet regulations.
The customer can turn the high wastewater treatment costs into a valuable energy source that can offset 30% of the energy requirements and decarbonise their electrical and thermal demands.
The modular solution can be manufactured offsite and deployed quickly with minimal disruption to the customer.
We have developed a process called Electro-Methanogenisis which accelerates the breakdown of organics into methane.
We have a proprietary membrane-less electrode technology that enables us to treat a wider variety of waste streams compared to competitors and reduces costs.
Anaerobic Digestion is our closest competitive technology but we can:
1. Increase energy by >20%
2. Treat waste up to 10X faster
3. Treat the waste 30-50% more to meat new regulations
4. Biosensing for realtime feedback.
