NVP Energy (NVPE) is an award-winning cleantech company that has developed the first-to-market, energy-positive, high-rate Anaerobic Digestion (AD) wastewater treatment technology that cleans low-strength wastewater for the global Food & Drink and Municipal wastewater industries very efficiently at low temperatures (unique for AD), at a fraction of the cost of other wastewater treatment technologies and produces renewable energy. Most low-strength wastewater treatment plants employ outdated Aerobic processes to treat their wastewater which have high energy & fossil fuel usage, excess sludge production and carbon emissions. NVP Energy’s revolutionary technology will displace incumbent energy-intensive wastewater treatment installations such as Aerobic processes by significantly cutting operational costs (minimal energy usage and sludge production) and generating renewable energy (carbon neutral). The unique aspect of the NVPE technology is that it is non-temperature dependent and can work at temperatures as low as 4°C and upwards. The internally passive treatment process requires minimum energy input and as the solution requires no external heat input, the biogas generated (over 85% methane) is 100% available for use on site, thus creating a sustainable energy supply for the customer and reducing their dependency on the national grid. NVPE’s technology offers prospective customers the opportunity to address their wastewater treatment needs with an energy generating, low OPEX solution. Innovatively, the NVPE technology is the only high-rate AD system to operate at ambient temperatures, wasting no energy on heating wastewater. In fact, the technology produces more than double the amount of energy it consumes, making it the only solution that can turn wastewater treatment from being an energy-burden into an energy-positive, revenue-generating process, a step-change for the wastewater industry.
