A solution that hold water

  • As a PhD holder in environmental engineering, Moh Sherafatmand saw a gap in the water industry. “You develop a lot of technologies, but when you go and see the reality in the industry, you still see old-fashioned technologies being implemented,” he shared. ”So I said ‘yeah, it’s time to take a leap’.”
  • With that desire and fire, wastewater treatment company Hydroleap was born to re-imagine the way that the world looks at water. The 500-backed company’s proprietary technology provides electrical treatment, an innovative and next-generation green technology that helps water-intensive industries such as food manufacturing and data centers improve water sustainability and recycling.
  • How has Hydroleap found commercial success? Apart from developing an effective and economical solution that reduces water consumption with better quality water, the magic lies in the technology’s modularity.
  • Moh shares that Hydroleap’s solution is a plug-and-play system that removes the need to make major changes to their client’s existing operations and systems.
  • The team recently raised US$4.4M in Series A funding for international expansion into the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, and Australia, and is all set for growth with multiple promising projects across these markets.
