  H2Opportunities Technologies
  Because all technology providers have differing needs, each H2Opps partnership is unique. At this time, we are working with the following technology providers.
Advanced Water Treatment Solutions (AWTS) introduces the MagSep Separator, a new innovative liquid/solids separator that removes fine pollutant particles from water. The MagSep Separator uses magnetic forces supplied from permanent rare earth magnets to remove fine pollutant particles that have been attached to magnetite using a flocculating polymer.

The AWTS MagSep Separator is designed to efficiently remove fine pollutant particles from water. The MagSep Separator can be added to an existing water treatment system to enhance performance or installed as a new system to meet tight discharge limits at the lowest cost.

EPC Ltd logo E.P.C. Ltd. (EPC), an Israeli firm, designs and manufactures Rotating Biological Contractor "Bio-Disk" systems and has over fifteen years of successful installations, big and small, in both the Middle Eastern and European markets. EPC designs, delivers, installs, and provides training on systems and controls.

Following the Michigan Supreme Court decision (MDEQ v. Worth Township) ruling that the responsibility for pollution to the waters of the State fall to the municipalities, many smaller cross-roads communities will struggle to find low cost solutions to community-wide wastewater treatment. EPC’s technology serves that need with low capital cost, modular, scalable, low energy, easy to maintain, distributed wastewater treatment strategies as opposed to typical, oversized, and costly centralized WWTP’s and the extensive collection system needed to feed it.

EMEFCY Logo Emefcy Bio Energy Systems, is a company based in Israel that is developing two proprietary technologies. H2Opps and its partners have captured funding for a demonstration of the innovative Emefcy technologies.

Electrogenic Bioreactor (EBR) treats wastewater and produces green electricity as a byproduct. The EBR functions as a battery, which uses wastewater as fuel.

Microbial fuel cells feeding on wastewater produce free, renewable, green energy. In the future, MFC technology will be applicable in additional environmental processes, while generating renewable energy

Spiral Aerobic Reactor (SABRE) changes the economics of wastewater treatment while reducing energy consumption dramatically and also reducing the amount of excess sludge.

SABRE is based on a breathable membrane, rolled into a spiral. Air is continuously distributed through the spiral in the axial direction and oxygen diffuses through the breathable membrane into the wastewater.

On the water side of the membrane, rich in autotrophic nitrifying bacteria, an aerobic biofilm develops. Deeper inside the water, rich in heterotrophic bacteria, an anoxic biofilm develops. The heterogenic microbial population allows the removal of organic matter and nitrogen. Nitrification by autotrophic bacteria in the layer attached to the membrane wall and de-nitrification by heterotrophic bacteria on the anoxic layer occurs simultaneously. Backwash sequences are performed to discharge a large portion of the sludge.

miya Arison Group Logo Miya is headquartered in Luxemburg and seeks entry in to the US markets. Miya is a global provider of comprehensive real-loss and apparent-loss water efficiency solutions for municipal distribution systems, with emphasis on non-revenue water management. Miya’s solutions enable its customers to save water and the cost of energy to produce and distribute that water, reduce rates to their consumers increase revenues and lower contamination risks.

H2Opportunities and their partner, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, has completed two demonstrations in Michigan. One on a portion of the Farmington Hills water system and one on a portion of the Grand Rapids water system. Both show successful results.

BioCAST Systems, Inc. (BioCAST) is headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

BioCAST has developed a new, small footprint, wastewater treatment technology designed for high rate and simultaneous removal of organic carbonaceous compounds as well as nitrogen and phosphorus. A particularly promising technology solution in treating and meeting discharge permit levels for strong single source wastewater such as is found in food processing facilities and landfill leachate remediation applications.

DAGUA a Canadian firm offers a unique value proposition for local and international communities with mobile, small, medium and large-scale drinking water treatment projects, (from 100,000 g/day to 150,000,000 g/day).

Delivering highly effective water purification and disinfection, Dagua’s ozone-membrane process occupies up to 40% less space than conventional coagulation systems. With coagulation eliminated from the treatment process, the DaguaFlo solution has a clear edge over the competition!

Dagua has developed a patented process for the cleaning of ultrafiltration membranes using ozone microbubble technology. Ozone microbubbles are finely diluted in water to deeply clean capillaries and prevent membrane fouling. Dislodging accumulated solids without chemical cleansers, this process delivers significant cost savings. And with this innovative technology, frequent downtimes for chemical cleanings are a thing of the past as well!

Algal Scientific headquartered in Ann Arbor, MI, was founded in 2009 with the mission of using algae to treat high strength waste water from a variety of industries such as food and beverage production.

Since that time we have developed a parallel process to use algae to make beta-1,3 glucan. This compound has such high value in animal and human health and nutrition that much of our focus has been on research and development relating to this compound and today, on its commercial production. Unlike our original water treatment process, we produce beta glucan using exclusively virgin food grade inputs in a 100% sterile fermentation process.

Beta glucan is an all-natural product that science has shown to support the normal immune system in nearly all living things. It has been used in aquaculture to reduce the impact of disease. In a variety of livestock, a healthier immune system can lead to improved productivity and reduced use of antibiotics. A wide variety of beta glucan products are incorporated in human foods and nutraceuticals, and millions of dollars of research has been invested in future applications as drugs and vaccines. Using our algae and technology, we are able to produce the highest quality products at a fraction of the historical world prices, bringing the benefits of this compound to expanding animal and human markets.

NEPTUN is an electronic fish fence product of Fishways Global, LLC which was founded in 2010 by Drs. Parasiewicz and Harding with a Corporate Mission to develop and promote new technologies to better understand and protect our natural resources in harmony with the needs of the community-at-large.

As part of this mission, Fishways Global partnered with Procom System S.A. ("Procom"), part of the Elektrotim S.A. Capital Group in Wroclaw, Poland. The partnership was formed to design and install the Procom "NEPTUN" device throughout North America.

NEPTUN was created in response to the demand for a device that effectively repels fish from surface water intakes with emphasis on adaptability to site conditions, ease of installation, and low operational and maintenance cost.

Criptonic Energy Solutions has patented low-head-hydro solution that utilizes sewerage flow as an energy source to operate hybrid turbines.  The CES turbines drive electric generators to make electricity. This process can operate at up to 90% efficiency without impact to the interceptor system or environment. Typically flow is diverted, screened, passed through the turbine and then, both the flow and screened waste is reintroduced to the original interceptor flow.

Criptonic Energy Solutions has agreed to work with H2Opportunities to demonstrate and validate this technology within an existing high volume wastewater interceptor lift station, owned and operated by the Water Resource Commissioner of Oakland County Michigan.
