Backed by top-tier investors and led by veteran entrepreneurs, Emefcy is perfectly positioned to lead the revolution in the energy economics of wastewater treatment, while retaining a practical and cost-effective approach to the needs of the customer.
Emefcy's advanced manufacturing facilities are equipped with state of the art production machinery, enabling the company to meet quality and quantity requirements of its partners and customers.
With several global innovation awards and a strong scientific background, Emefcy is leading the next generation in wastewater treatment.
SABRE - Spiral Aerobic Biofilm Reactor
Conventional aerobic wastewater treatment has just celebrated a century of activated sludge, to which we owe most of our sewage treatment in the last 100 years. But today it is looking like an energy-intensive process, somewhat complicated to operate for high quality water reuse.
Professionals know that a major part of wastewater treatment cost is spent on energy for aeration. Today there is an alternative for that: self respiring Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactors (MABR).
SABRE - Spirally-wound Aerobic Biofilm REactor, is a new modular MABR. It is currently configured for small wastewater treatment plants, where it reduces energy consumption, reduces the amount of excess sludge and simplifies operation for water reuse.
EBR - Electrogenic Bio Reactor
The Electrogenic Bio Reactors (EBR) system is an innovative solution for wastewater treatment, based on microbial fuel cell technology. It enables direct electricity generation from wastewater as means for wastewater treatment.
Emefcy's Electrogenic Bio Reactors for wastewater treatment is unique compared to other wastewater treatment processes. The EBR is based on three components new to biological wastewater treatment:
- Anodes (in anaerobic conditions): Where the bacterial oxidation of the organic matter occurs
- Cathodes (which are exposed to air): Where the corresponding reduction reaction takes place
- An electrical circuit that includes the external load, connecting the anodes to the cathodes
A biofilm naturally develops on the anode, oxidizing the organic matter into carbon dioxide. Protons migrate through the water, and electrons travel through the electric circuit, towards the cathode. The reaction on the cathode is due to a reduction of atmospheric oxygen in the presence of protons to water.
As a result, organic matter is oxidized, as it would be in conventional treatment methods. However, unlike conventional treatment methods, an electric current is produced, rather than energy being consumed during the process.
