Ecocycle Ltd.​

Ecocycle contributes to the safekeeping of freshwater resources and the prevention of water-borne diseases by treating sewage and making it usable for non-potable purposes. This is becoming increasingly relevant as climate change threatens the availability of freshwater.

Business Model

Ecocycle’s technology ensures that raw sewage is treated to a safe quality before being discharged back into the environment. This prevents fresh water sources from being polluted and contributes to the mitigation of many vector- and water-borne diseases as well as providing a secondary source of water used for non-potable uses such as lawn irrigation, toilet flushing, dust suppression, etc.

Adaptation Impact

In times of changes in precipitation patterns and deterioration of water quality due to climate change; thus boosting availability of and improved access to clean water.
