Our Team

Today, 80% of wastewater is discharged to the environment with minimal or no treatment. The Aquacycl mission is "Sanitation for all". We envision distributed off-sewer and off-energy grid solutions for sanitation throughout the world. Our systems help to build resilience to climate change and access to safe and reliable sanitation.

Our Story

We are revolutionizing wastewater treatment by generating direct electricity from dirty water. Our plug-and play technology treats ultra-concentrated wastewater rapidly and affordably and is ready to take on the world—one car battery-sized reactor at a time.

Globally, 80% of wastewater is discharged with minimal or no treatment—a huge problem for people, our economy, and the planet. Aquacycl’s patented BioElectrochemical Treatment Technology is revolutionizing wastewater treatment and creating clean water for all. 

Access to clean water and sanitation is a huge concern globally. Our patented, scalable, modular, and cost-effective BioElectrochemical Treatment Technology (BETT®) solution is initially serving to treat ultra-strength wastewater from food and beverage production. However, as we scale we will expand to distributed sewer infrastructure, where we can address this problem on an even larger scale.

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither was the world’s first affordable, energy-neutral wastewater treatment system for ultra high-strength wastewater. But after 16 years of hard work in our labs, the hardware is done, the infrastructure’s in place, and we’re ready to scale.

Over the past 18 months, our sales pipeline has grown to over $150M, and—being the only technology available in this niche—we are flooded with seemingly unquenchable demand. In addition, we’ve signed a master service agreement with one of the largest food & beverage producers in the world. We’re projected to be profitable by 2022**, and our pipeline includes some of the most recognizable food and beverage brands in the world.

**Forward-looking projections cannot be guaranteed

We’re not just miles ahead of the competition—we’re truly in a league of our own. Our team’s unrivaled knowledge and innovation has created the only technology that exists to fill this niche. And thanks to multiple IP protections, we expect to quickly capture $1.5B of the $8B food and beverage (F&B) market; expanding into other markets representing $20B potential by the end of this decade.

Our OpEx business model gives us predictable cash flow and long-term contracts, while providing benefits both for us and our customers.

We’re about to deliver the first major Aquacycl system to one of the largest F&B companies in the world (a household name!), and our pipeline only continues to grow. Our path to profitability is clear, and our revenue potential is massive. 

We need better ways of managing our water cycle—for people and the environment. Our system provides a unique, scalable solution. By investing now, you’ll get in on one of the most exciting innovations of our time. Join us in this clean water revolution!
