"EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE,

A NEW TECHNOLOGY, AN OLD PROBLEM,

AND A BIG IDEA TO TURN INTO INNOVATION"

COMPACT, SUSTAINABLE & SUPERIOR WET WASTE TREATMENT

374Water Inc. is a social impact, cleantech company spun off Duke University in Durham, NC. The company is commercializing a novel approach to Supercritical Water Oxidation (SCWO) that was invented by its founders, Kobe Nagar and Marc Deshusses with the support of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. 

 

Our mission is to support a clean and healthy environment to sustain life. We do that using cutting-edge science to recover resources from the waste our society generates and keep our drinking water clean! We help businesses and local governments make the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) a reality.

OUR VISION

Compact, superior, onsite and decentralized waste treatment facilities. In developing countries, where there is limited access to improved sanitation conditions and in many cases no central sewage systems, the Nix unit can serve as the center of a local, distributed fecal waste treatment facility, in both urban and rural environments.

The same distributed on-site model can be implemented in developed countries, in urban areas with limited options for biosolids disposal, demand for improved treatment capacity, or aspirations for on-site treatment and water reuse in high-rises, the Nix treatment units can provide superior treatment in a small footprint.

Modern animal farming is also facing unprecedented challenges managing manure with new environmental regulations and public pressure. The Nix treatment units can provide effective on-site manure treatment with complete elimination of antibiotic resistant bacteria and micro-pollutants. Secondary benefits include greatly reduced odors and greenhouse gases emissions.

 

Supercritical water oxidation also holds promise to effectively treat persistent and hazardous chemicals in concentrated wastes. These include but are not limited to PFOA/PFOS (GenX), landfill leachate, and pharmaceutical wastes.

OUR VISION - AN OMNI-PROCESSOR TO TREAT THEM ALL

Compact, superior, on-site and decentralized waste treatment facilities. In developing countries, where there is limited access to improved sanitation conditions and in many cases no central sewage systems, the AirSCWO omni-processor can serve as the center of a local, distributed fecal waste treatment facility, in both urban and rural environments.
