MICROrganic is an Advanced Materials company commercializing energy-positive Microbial Fuel Cells for wastewater treatment. Our first product, VIVA MFC, eliminates 90% of the energy-required for Wastewater Aeration, provides better treatment, with reduced sludge, provides continuous process intelligence, and generates DC power. Much of our focus has been on developing a materials set and scaled manufacturing to be able to make robust MFCs at industrial scale. We developed a proprietary materials set and a scaled manufacturing platform to produce high-performance, cost-efficient MFCs. Over the last 5 years, we've conducted significant R&D, and 10 pilots (of varying sizes), including a 40K L/Day pilot, running continuously for over a year. We are now conducting additional engineering to refine specs for commercial sale and deployment.

Other products

VIVA MFC eliminates approx. 90% of the energy required to aerate Wastewater. Instead of blowing air into the water, we use naturally electrogenic microbial biofilms connected to a conductive circuit. As the microbes break down waste, they deposit electrons on the circuit. No air is required in the bulk fluid. The benefits are many: VIVA MFC eliminates 90% of aeration energy use, generates DC power, and provides real-time continuous treatment data.
