Emefcy was founded in 2007 with a vision of fundamentally changing the economics of wastewater treatment. The systems developed by Emefcy produce electricity or hydrogen directly from the treatment of different types of wastewater. They also provide a unique treatment solution for heavily loaded organic wastewater with high salinity, which existing treatment technologies fail to treat efficiently. This conversion is made possible by use of microbial fuel cell (MFC) technology.
