VIVA™... The Revolution
VIVA™ MFC is the world's first scalable microbial fuel cell platform for wastewater treatment and energy recovery. We've created a novel, proprietary materials set that delivers high performance and longevity. Plus, a flexible form factor for all types of applications. And because we build MFC's at scale, we are competitive with conventional alternatives. (Like Aeration & MBRs.)
VIVA is ideal for low-strength waste (Municipal Treatment) and higher strength waste (Food & Beverage Manufacturing). Secondary treatment is energy-positive, and we can retrofit to existing tanks, or side-stream, based on your needs.
Are you a small Food/Bev manufacturer, and don't have a wastewater system? We can still help with Pre-treatment, to eliminate your municipal fees.

Aeration Blows. VIVA™ Doesn't
VIVA performs aerobic treatment in an anaerobic environment. The microbes "breathe through a wire", using our solid electrodes as part of their respiratory process.

Real Time Monitoring
While microbes treat organic waste, they generate DC current, which also happens to be a great indicator of process health.
You can see, in real time, how much BOD your system is processing, and anticipate problems before they arise.
Get Going Fast. (Who waits?)
Priming the microbial culture can be a complex phase when installing a new treatment system.
With our patented approach, you start with a fully inoculated, stable system.
Two Processes in One
Without aeration, solids don't pose as big an issue. VIVA™ allows solids to settle simultaneously with treatment. Simpler. And less energy-intensive.
