Clean water & Renewable Energy  from industrial wastewater

The Challenge

Billions of tons of wastewater are generated as a byproduct across different industrial and residential use and if left untreated, contributes to global water scarcity.

Global water demand will exceed supply by 40% by 2030. Almost every industry uses water and as a result, an enormous amount of wastewater is produced as a byproduct. If left untreated, billions of tons of water go to waste. In certain industries, this wastewater can be extremely toxic to the environment and in some cases is four times more concentrated than sewage.

The Solution

waste-to-energy & water reuse portfolio

Generating renewable natural gas from dairy and industrial food wastewater and reusing wastewater recycles otherwise wasted water.

Wastewater from industrial food byproducts can be used to produce steam, electricity, or hot water which is then redistributed into the grid or to the heating network for homes, hospitals, offices, etc. Wastewater at facilities can also be treated and reused for industrial cooling and chilling as well as irrigation.
