Public Profile:
Waste2Watergy is a Corvallis startup formed at Oregon State University to work on technology that filters organics from wastewater and converts it to electricity. The firm's system cleans organics from wastewater and is viewed as a potentially revolutionary approach to cleaning wastewater from breweries as well as the food and beverage industry. Previously a prototype of the firm's microbial fuel cell technology was piloted at a local Brewery. Waste2Watergy is commercializing an innovative microbial fuel cell (MFC) technology. In an MFC, electrochemically-active microbes at the anode oxidize organic matter into CO2, electrons, and protons. Electrons from this oxidation process are transferred to the anodes and move through a circuit to the cathode, where they combine with protons and oxygen to form H2O. The firm's strengths in the field of microbial fuel cells include a novel reactor design, low-cost but highly-efficient separator and electrode materials, and electricity-generating bacteria that are extremely efficient.
