BETT Systems are a new and proven way of efficiently treating wastewater

Aquacycl’s BETT® systems provide cost savings, sustainable wastewater treatment and guaranteed permit compliance.


Scalable and Efficient

Modular design maintains treatment availability during maintenance, repair and variable production cycles.


Customized for Customer Needs

BETT systems are specifically designed for customer specifications on volume and effluent quality – providing the most cost-effective solution for challenging wastewater.


Real-time remote monitoring and controls

We catch issues before they become problems. Aquacycl provides the highest reliability and operational transparency, with hands-off operation for each customer.

How it Works

Aquacycl’s BioElectrochemical Treatment Technology (BETT) uses naturally existing bacteria to treat wastewater and generate direct electricity. Every system starts with customer wastewater and natural microbes – nothing grown in the lab, nothing genetically modified.


Expanding production capacity?

No problem. Just add more BETT® reactors. Each reactor is about the size of a car battery, and they stack together like Legos™ to increase treatment capacity or quality.

Production variability?

Our bugs are tough. We’ve starved them. We’ve overfed them. We’ve even bleached them. Within 24 hours of normal flow, they are back at their expected treatment rate.
