Our Mission is to accelerate access to wastewater and organic waste treatment and provide sustainable energy to communities.

Our Vision is a world where we unlock the power of waste to fuel our future, where waste will become the everyday source of clean water, sustainable energy and fertilisers enabling communities to flourish.

We develop accelerating wastewater and organic waste treatment technologies; unlocking the power of low strength waste streams to produce energy-rich biogas.

We specialise in the decentralised treatment of organic waste from food to sewage, converting it into sustainable energy, clean water and fertilisers. Our modular solution SaniWASE uses a bio electro-chemical process accelerating the breakdown of organics converting them into methane. Our modularity allows easy scalability allowing us to provide circular waste management for small communities, industry and municipalities.

Our focus is to launch in Sub-Saharan Africa and India, where we can work with local organisations to increase community and industry access to wastewater treatment. Join us at an exciting time where we are innovating and creating new designs and products that will be tested in the field.

We particularly encourage applications from women, disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates.
