About WASE

The problem we're solving:

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.

Our solution:

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.

Our differentiator:

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.

Our biggest achievement:

9-month customer demonstration moving tech from TRL 5 to 7. Closed £1.7 million in sales contracts with 5 customers Commercial unit ready for deployment in October 2023. Research contract with GRDF (French Gas Distribution Network) Partnership with Hitachi's Wastewater team.
