Epic Cleantec is shifting the paradigm of water treatment

The sustainable management of water and wastewater is one of the great challenges of our time. The world is urbanizing — 70% of the world will likely live in cities by 2050 — and the conventional approach to infrastructure is strained to its breaking point.

About Epic Cleantec

Our work shifts the water industry toward a distributed, circular approach in which wastewater resources — water, nutrients, energy, carbon — are recovered and reused. With our technology, the “waste” in wastewater is converted into an endlessly renewable supply of valuable commodities.

Born out of work with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s Reinvent the Toilet Challenge, Epic Cleantec has become a leader in the onsite water reuse space, trusted by leading players in real estate nationally. We bring multidisciplinary expertise spanning water and wastewater infrastructure, engineering, building science, and public policy to create systems that will ensure that everyone has access to clean water and reliable sanitation for generations.
