Treatment innovation

Introduction to Algaewheel Video

Algaewheel uses daylight to power an advanced treatment solution with little energy use or complex control; transforming the viability of decentralized treatment

Revolutionary Fixed Film Technology

OneWater developed Algaewheel, a revolutionary fixed film technology to address the needs of the decentralized market.

Nature has spent millions of years evolving very efficient biological and chemical processes; Algaewheel looked to these systems (biomimicry) for inspiration. This revolutionary technology uses daylight to power a self-sustaining ecosystem that autonomously delivers advanced treatment with little energy use, dedicated staff or complex process controls, transforming the viability of decentralized treatment.

Key benefits
  • Treats to most stringent standards
  • Tolerates low and variable flows
  • No complex process control
  • Reduced skilled operation
  • Ultra Low energy use
  • Can provide water suitable for reuse
  • Cost-effective, modular/expandable design
  • Contemporary ecostructure
  • No odor

Over millions of years nature has evolved very efficient biological processes; Algaewheel mimics nature by utilizing the mutually symbiotic relationship between algae and bacteria.

Algaewheel’s innovation promotes the development of decentralized treatment and water reuse; an effective model that addresses water pollution and local water security.
