May 15, 2023 Ι ZwitterCo, which develops membranes to treat the most challenging wastewaters, announced a multi-year, exclusive partnership with Mott Corporation to deliver wastewater solutions for manure and food-waste digesters, as well as breweries and distilleries, in North America.
“Anaerobic digesters are an important technology in combatting climate change, as they generate renewable natural gas and organic fertilizers from food and agricultural wastes. However, the wastewater from digesters, called digestate, can be expensive to dispose of and is challenging to treat,” said Alex Rappaport, CEO of ZwitterCo.
“Integrating ZwitterCo’s products into our turn-key filtration systems means Mott and our new team members at Digested Organics can offer a best-in-class solution for onsite wastewater treatment, water reuse, and co-product generation” said Pat Hill, VP & GM of Mott’s North American Process Systems business.
ZwitterCo Wins Breakthrough Technology Company of the Year Award at 2023 Global Water Summit
ZwitterCo was nominated, shortlisted, and then won a Global Water Award in the Breakthrough Technology Company of the Year category. The winners were announced during the 2023 Global Water Summit in Berlin. We were honored to be included with so many stellar water industry companies, and we are incredibly proud of this achievement. The yearly awards recognize significant achievements by water companies across the globe in several categories.
Winning a Global Water Award is a gold standard in the water industry. In 2022, ZwitterCo announced one of the largest Series A rounds ever for a water technology company. We scaled commercial activities rapidly in the year, delivering 4 million gallons per day of wastewater treatment and booking 16 projects across various industries such as food wastewater, digestate, bioprocessing, and more. Our superfiltration membranes harness the power of zwitterions to create a spiral-wound membrane that is immune to irreversible organic fouling, the top problem for most polymeric membranes. This breakthrough innovation opens new territories for wastewater treatment using membranes – even in the toughest streams filled with organics such as fats, oils, and proteins.
