"EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE,

A NEW TECHNOLOGY, AN OLD PROBLEM,

AND A BIG IDEA TO TURN INTO INNOVATION"

COMPACT, SUSTAINABLE & SUPERIOR WET WASTE TREATMENT

374Water uses supercritical water oxidation (SCWO) technology to provide superior treatment for wet waste. Our systems treat fecal sludge, biosolids such as primary, secondary or digested sludge, agriculture waste or any type of organic wet waste. They convert these to clean water, CO2 (that can be captured) and heat that is used to generate electricity – in seconds. Read more about the SCWO technology.

 

Our mission is address unmet needs of fecal sludge management required for adequate water and sanitation in developing countries (UN Sustainable Development Goal SDG 6) as well as providing relevant infrastructure for sustainable cities worldwide (SDG 11). At the same time, we are addressing the risks and decreasing the environmental costs of current sludge treatment in developing countries. From emerging contaminants in biosolids’ landfilling and land application (pathogens, micro-pollutants such as PFAS and microplastics) to GHG effects, we are helping to protect the air quality, protect terrestrial ecosystems and life water resources (SDG 14,15).

OUR VISION

Compact, superior, onsite and decentralized waste treatment facilities. In developing countries, where there is limited access to improved sanitation conditions and in many cases no central sewage systems, the Nix unit can serve as the center of a local, distributed fecal waste treatment facility, in both urban and rural environments.

The same distributed on-site model can be implemented in developed countries, in urban areas with limited options for biosolids disposal, demand for improved treatment capacity, or aspirations for on-site treatment and water reuse in high-rises, the Nix treatment units can provide superior treatment in a small footprint.

Modern animal farming is also facing unprecedented challenges managing manure with new environmental regulations and public pressure. The Nix treatment units can provide effective on-site manure treatment with complete elimination of antibiotic resistant bacteria and micro-pollutants. Secondary benefits include greatly reduced odors and greenhouse gases emissions.

 

Supercritical water oxidation also holds promise to effectively treat persistent and hazardous chemicals in concentrated wastes. These include but are not limited to PFOA/PFOS (GenX), landfill leachate, and pharmaceutical wastes.

OUR VISION - AN OMNI-PROCESSOR TO TREAT THEM ALL

Compact, superior, on-site and decentralized waste treatment facilities. In developing countries, where there is limited access to improved sanitation conditions and in many cases no central sewage systems, the AirSCWO omni-processor can serve as the center of a local, distributed fecal waste treatment facility, in both urban and rural environments.
