June 19, 2019: It’s been a great week for us! We’re thrilled to announce that we have been invited to be in the BlueTech Pavilion at AquaTech in Amsterdam. The BlueTech Pavilion is the “happening” place. If you’re going, please come meet us!
June 10, 2019: We are honored to have been invited to present our technology to the South Texas AIChE (American Institute of Chemical Engineers) last Friday. We especially appreciate their enthusiasm and interest in our technology. We look forward to opportunities in that region. We really appreciate the invitation.
May 30th, 2019: A great visit today at our Municipal pilot site from the team at the Massachusetts Clean Energy Council - funder for this project.
March 25, 2019: Our 10,000 Gal/Day Municipal Pilot has been installed for months and is working beautifully. Even though we started it at the height of winter. (And now it is really cranking!)
December 1, 2018: Today, we poured the concrete pad for our MassCEC Municipal Wastewater Treatment pilot. Only 37 degrees outside! Tanks will be installed in a few weeks. Check out our gallery for pictures.
October 26, 2018: Interesting day at NREL in Denver yesterday. We were invited to an event sponsored by DOE, on developing focal areas and incentives for Water-related DOE funding. Appreciate being able to share is in this with a quite diverse group of people from multiple sectors, including engineering, finance, regulatory, other government officials, and even some early stage companies.
October 18, 2018: Big news day for us! Our tanks for our year-long Municipal pilot just arrived.
October 18, 2018: Today, we’re in Houston, TX - a city that is very aware of the need for water and power resiliency. Sponsored by InvestH20, this event has brought together a variety of people from water, power, and investment sectors. We appreciate of the opportunity to present our technology, and our commercialization plans, (for 2019) at this very interesting conference.
October 1, 2018: We are at WEFTEC! And for the first time, we have a booth, as part of the Aqualyst water accelerator. (By the way, we’re also doing a presentation in the Innovation Pavilion on later this week.) And a real highlight, our CTO Brent Solina will present at a WEF Technical Session about a recent 8-month brewery pilot, and the implications for our scale up and product development early next year.
September, 2018: We’re so proud to announce a grant from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, for a year-long Municipal WWT pilot. Our partner in this endeavor is the Pittsfield MA Municipal WWT plant. This scaled pilot will demonstrate our technology through multiple seasons, and also provide on-the-ground, real-time data that will help us size our system for Municipal installations. Stay tuned for more information.
August, 2018: MICROrganic has joined a second Accelerator: Aqualyst. As you might guest, Aqualyst is focused on Water Technologies; their focus: connect us with potential partners and customers, as we gear up to go to market next year.
June 2018: We recently finished our participation in the Plug and Play Energy and Sustainability Batch. Plug and Play is a phenomenal organization; we met many new potential partners, investors, advisors, and customers. Very grateful, and energized (no pun intended!) by this wonderful program.
March 2018: MICROrganic joins Plug and Play, the Silicon Valley Accelerator, as one of their companies in the Energy Sector.
December 2017: CTO Brent Solina is named Innovator of the Year by NEWIN (Northeast Water Innovation Network). This honor is in recognition of his contributions to the Water Sector.
October 2017: MICROrganic installs its first long-term Brewery pilot, using the VIVA MFC treatment system.
June 2016: MICROrganic joins the Cleantech Open, a national clean technology program that helps young companies prepare for market readiness.
Our new pilot tanks arrived!
Each tank is 2500 Gals.
