Cambrian Innovation is a biotechnology company looking to revolutionize the water and wastewater sector through technological innovations and new, circular business models.
Cambrian’s EcoVolt solutions support the circular economy by extracting renewable resources – clean energy and clean water – from wastewater. EcoVolt solutions ensure long-term security for Cambrian’s industrial partners, a strategic necessity in the face of water supply concerns and rising treatment costs. At a facility in California, for example, an EcoVolt solution cut water consumption by over 40 percent through onsite treatment and reuse, while it generated 120 kW of renewable energy, reducing overall costs.
Cambrian is further accelerating the adoption of its technology and the transition to the circular economy in the water and wastewater sector with a new service-based financing model called the Water-Energy Purchase Agreement (WEPA). In this model, Cambrian owns, installs, and operates EcoVolt solutions for its partners, eliminating upfront costs and alleviating capital constraints, enabling more partners to employ circular practices.
