In our seventh episode we hear from Orianna Bretschger, CEO and Founder of Aquacycl. Aquacycl is commercializing microbial fuel cell technology that treats wastewater and creates electricity at the same time. Wastewater treatment is normally a significant energy consumer but Aquacycl's solution remedies this by harnessing biological processes. Their technology has been proven in the field through pilot projects and is entering the market by targeting highly-concentrated organic wastewater producers.
In this episode we learn about Orianna's journey from Ph.D. student to starting Aquacycl, the science behind Aquacycl's technology and why it matters, as well as the possibilities for the company as they continue to develop.
