Wastewater Treatment System
Boston , MA

The EcoVolt is an industrial-scale bioelectrically enhanced wastewater treatment system designed to allow food and beverage companies to cut operating costs while increasing plant sustainability. The process leverages electrically active microbes to stabilize the wastewater treatment process while generating clean energy, converting wastewater pollutants into electricity. This electricity is funneled to a circuit and back into an electrode, where a set of microorganisms convert electricity and carbon dioxide into methane fuel.
