MICROrganic is an Advanced Materials company commercializing Microbial Fuel Cells for wastewater treatment. Our first product, VIVA MFC, eliminates ~90% of the energy-required for Wastewater Aeration, provides continuous process intelligence, and generates DC power. Wastewater aeration is the most energy-intensive step in wastewater treatment; VIVA MFC can significantly reduce plant energy costs and GHG's associated with Wastewater Treatment. To bring this technology to industrial markets, we have innovated in the materials and manufacturing to manufacture robust MFCs at industrial scale, for high-performance and cost-efficiency. Over the last five years, we have conducted numerous pilots, running continuously for over a year and are developing commercial prototype as we get ready to go to market.
