Our mission is to eliminate waste from the bottle beverage supply chain. Bevi machines are powered by filtered tap water, and allows the user to customize still and sparkling water with unsweetened, zero-cal, or organically sweetened flavors. All machines are Internet-connected, enabling real-time data for the proactive servicing of the Bevi machines.
Citylitics delivers predictive intelligence on local utility and public infrastructure markets. The company's data engine transforms over a billion documents buried in 31,000+ cities & utility data sources into high-value intelligence for targeted business development.
Hydroquo+ utilises unique product suite to improve water quality and reduce losses. By harnessesing the power of chemometric analytics tools to maximize information and data available for leading water innovators, to dramatically improve the quality of water worldwide.
Traditional desalination is an expensive, unsustainable, inefficient, and polluting $20bn/yr market. It is essentially a process to transform fossil fuels into potable water. Our company harnesses wave power to produce fresh water with zero GHG, zero land, responsible brine using modular units for water-scarce regions in the world while reducing their water costs by up to 75% in identified markets. Oneka has already demonstrated its technology in the ocean. The mission of Oneka is to make the oceans the most sustainable and affordable source of drinking water.
StormHarvester links civil infrastructure to a weather forecasting platform. This allows civil infrastructure to take action prior to heavy rainfall. StormHarvester was designed and developed through collaboration between specialist drainage engineers, leading engineering academics from Queens University, Belfast, and specialist software and electronics engineers. Our ‘smart’ drainage solutions are set to fundamentally disrupt traditional drainage design by reducing capital costs, water demand and pollution events.
Gross-Wen Technologies uses its patented wastewater treatment technology, known as the revolving algal biofilm system (RAB), to cost-effectively recover nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus from wastewater. Compared to other treatment options, our system is significantly more affordable and produces algae biomass which can be sold as a slow release algal fertilizer or bioplastic.
Arable is a developer of an integrated system for agriculture that helps digitize and optimize decisions from seed breeding to food production. The platform measures everything that matters to the crop, from the weather to the soil, to the plant itself by the use of a unique set of spectral and thermal sensors. This enables Arable to observe a crop’s development through the season and determine the onset of stress due to a lack of water or nutrients. Its integrated hardware, agronomic modeling, and software suite is enabling farmers, agronomists, researchers, processors, and food companies to understand the crop system at the plant, field, and region level, which helps to reduce risk, improve productivity, and optimize for sustainability. Arable received recognition, including the Irrigation Association’s Best New Product of 2018, Plug & Play’s Top 10 Ag Tech Companies to Watch in 2019, and THRIVE’s Top 50 Companies for 2020 awards.
Epic Cleantec ("Epic") is a full-service water reuse firm based in San Francisco, CA. We provide turnkey wastewater treatment and reuse systems for customers, creating a one-stop-shop for design, engineering, permitting, installation, and ongoing operations. Our team has decades of experience across the wastewater and built environment value chain, with expertise in wastewater and solids handling technology, project financing, policy, and operations. Epic is decentralizing wastewater treatment and reuse into individual buildings or groups of buildings, by converting building wastewater into treated water for non-potable applications like toilet flushing, irrigation, and cooling towers, as well as natural soil amendments that can be used to grow crops, enhance gardens, and beautify green spaces. The Epic system can help a project reduce its water demand by up to 90%, which saves owners hundreds of thousands of dollars annually on their water and sewer bills. Born out of initial work with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's "Reinvent the Toilet Challenge," Epic reduces the cost and complexity of onsite wastewater treatment and reuse, lowering costs for building owners, easing strain on municipal utilities, and strengthening sustainability and resiliency efforts. Winner of the United Nation's 2018 Global Climate Action Summit Innovation Showcase and a Fast Company 2020 World Changing Ideas Award honoree, Epic is now participating in the highly competitive Imagine H2O accelerator, the world's top water-focused startup program.
