About Us

Sanitation and Water for All

Aquacycl was founded in 2016 with a goal of creating distributed wastewater treatment to address water scarcity and lack of infrastructure in low-income countries. We started in sanitation and our journey has led us to a deeper understanding of wastewater challenges across many industries. As we continue to grow, Aquacycl seeks to improve the way our most valuable commodity, water, is managed. We take on the challenge of sanitation and clean water, whether it is for industry or communities.
