The World’s First Bioelectric Treatment Process


EcoVolt is a breakthrough wastewater treatment system that leverages electrically active microbes to create clean water and high quality renewable methane gas from wastewater.  

EcoVolt helps industrial beverage producers, particularly breweries, wineries, as well as food processing plants, generate energy from their wastewater streams, decreasing their carbon footprint & turning environmental liabilities into sources of revenue.

EcoVolt is ideal for wineries, breweries and other food and beverage producers that are:

Developed and scaled over the past five years with funding from the National Science Foundation, EcoVolt is an anaerobic treatment process enhanced by newly discovered electrically active microbes.  To learn more about EcoVolt technology, click here.

The EcoVolt treatment system includes a “headworks” unit for wastewater conditioning and expandable EcoVolt modules for wastewater treatment and gas generation.  A combined heat and power system can be included in the package to convert biogas into clean heat and electricity.  The modular system is pre-fabricated for low-cost installation.

Why Select EcoVolt?

Traditional treatment systems, like aerated ponds in the wine industry, consume energy and land, costing hundreds of thousands of dollars per year depending on the site.  EcoVolt reverses this balance, tapping the natural energy already present in the wastewater, converting a power draw into a source of energy.


Clean EnergyClean Energy Generation

EcoVolt generates clean electricity and clean heat directly from industrial wastewater streams.  High quality, renewable biogas created within the reactor is captured and used as a fuel in a combined heat and power system.  A typical installation can create 30 – 200 kW of power.



RobustRobust Wastewater Treatment

EcoVolt’s proprietary bioelectric process is robust and adaptable to a range of wastewater streams, and therefore particularly suited to varying BOD loads that are typically found in the food and beverage industry.




TurnkeyPrefabricated, Turn-key Installation

EcoVolt installations feature a prefabricated and modular design, reducing non-recurring engineering costs and greatly reducing install time and cost.  The headworks can be designed to accommodate a high number of modular EcoVolt tanks, creating a low capex option to expand production at any point in the future.



AutomatedAutomated, Remote Operation

Leveraging, for the first time, a bioelectrochemical treatment process, EcoVolt systems automatically monitor the health of constituent microbial populations, enabling automated and/or remote control of the treatment process, and radically decreasing operator intensiveness.



SustainableSustainable Water Management

Water is an increasingly precious resource and industries globally are moving towards the reuse of process water. The Cambrian EcoVolt system can form the basis for varying degrees of water reuse, whether for irrigation, tank washing or production.  Contact the EcoVolt team for more information.
