NuTree recycles wastewater to create clean water, combustion-less bionenergy, and crops.

The easy-to-use device makes powerful water treatment accessible at a small scale. A single unit treats and recycles over 300 gallons per day fo wastewater without odor while removing over 90% of contaminants. NuTree's compact design offers scalable modularity to connect multiple units to treat higher volumes of wastewater. Resembling a high tech garden, naturally ocurring plants and microbes are used for cleaning. This gives NuTree a non-toxic, aesthetically pleasing setup. Other green perks include recycling nutrient water for reuse and nutrients to grow microgreens with vertical farming attachment. Finally, it creates bioenergy, thus making the system self-powered. The user is able to personalize wastewater treatment and power production with NuTree.
