Aquacycl™ provides the BioElectrochemical Treatment Technology (BETT™) for onsite wastewater treatment. The BETT™ systems eliminate up to 80% of incoming primary sludge, recover energy as direct electricity (no methane), and can provide a 90% reduction in treatment footprint and a 50%-90% reduction in operating expenses relative to conventional aerobic approaches for high-strength wastewater streams.
Aquacycl’s BioElectrochemical Treatment Technology (BETT™) uses natural and locally-sourced bacteria to convert organic waste and sludge into direct electricity without methane production. No need to ship live cultures. No genetically modified or engineered bacterial strains.
Aquacycl’s BioElectrochemical Treatment Technology (BETT™) units are modular and plug-and-play top operate with very little additional infrastructure and can integrate directly with existing collection/treatment systems.
80% of wastewater is discharged to the environment with minimal or no treatment. In many cases, conventional treatment technologies require significant investment in infrastructure and cost-prohibitive energy requirements.
