HydroMentia designs, builds and operates an all-natural, sustainable technology that removes nitrogen, phosphorus and other harmful pollutants in storm water, waste water, industrial and agricultural applications. The company spent several years perfecting the technology and is ready to take off.
Excess nutrients are the primary cause of algal blooms in the Gulf of Mexico and thousands of other water bodies. The Algal Turf Scrubber® has been demonstrated at commercial and pilot scale from Florida to New York and from Chesapeake Bay to California. A county in Florida has successfully operated a 4-1/2 acre Algal Turf Scrubber® (ATS™) for several years. The same client will have a second ATS™ system operational in the first quarter of 2014. Other clients in the pipeline include a well-known mining company and an environmentally responsible 7,000 acre mixed use real estate development.
The algae can be converted into valuable byproducts. Billion $ market potential.
