374Water and Forever Water Ecuador to collaborate to solve sanitation in Ecuador

  • 374Water and Forever Water Ecuador to collaborate to solve sanitation in Ecuador
  • Starting with Ecuador, 374Water's Global Access initiative will offer the innovative and sustainable AirSCWO™ technology as a next generation waste management solution to parts of the world most in need of improved water quality and sanitation.

About the entity

374Water
Transforming the simplest and most complex wastes such as wastewater residuals and biosolids, food waste, industrial waste, and PFAS.

374Water, a social impact, cleantech company, entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Forever Water Ecuador to promote and distribute 374Water's innovative and sustainable AirSCWO™ wastewater and waste management technology in Ecuador. According to Ecuadorian government statistics, 14% of the population lack access to basic sanitation services, which heightens the need for sanitation infrastructure investment. This joint effort will provide long-term and sustainable waste management solutions to the urban and rural underserved regions of Ecuador.

Access to clean water and sanitation is one of the key United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 6 - Clean Water and Sanitation). 374Water is committed to helping organizations achieve these goals. Through the efforts of its Global Access team, and partnerships with regional leaders like Forever Water Ecuador, 374Water will offer its AirSCWO™ system as a decentralized, modular, easily deployable, and cost-effective solution for sanitation and waste treatment in resource constrained locations around the world.

374Water's AirSCWO™ technology can convert the simplest and most complex wastes into valuable recoverable resources

"The broader adoption of the AirSCWO™ technology, both in public and private sectors, will help solve many of Ecuador's environmental issues such as illegal dumping and inadequate fecal sludge infrastructure, while also creating jobs, wealth, and better health outcomes in the region," said Daniel Ramirez-Cisneros, Global Access lead at 374Water. "We're excited to work with the Forever Water Ecuador team, local officials and communities to demonstrate the economic, public health, and environmental benefits of a next generation waste treatment technology in a new global market."

374Water's AirSCWO™ technology can convert the simplest and most complex wastes into valuable recoverable resources, namely, water, energy, and minerals. Forging a collaborative relationship with Forever Water Ecuador will allow the company to further demonstrate its solutions within Latin American and the other emerging markets.

"Our Global Access team is focused on providing sanitation to those who need it", said Marc Deshusses, Head of Technology and Co-founder of 374Water. "We view our expansion to Ecuador as one of many countries where our technology can provide important environmental solutions."
