Alternative & Renewable Energy
Clean Wave Technologies, LLC (Clean Wave) is an environmental technology development and commercialization company, founded by a team of experienced entrepreneurs with strong backgrounds in the sciences, engineering and marketing fields. Clean Wave has developed two proprietary technologies that provide dramatic cost savings for customers in a broad spectrum of industries. Clean Wave has developed and is in the process of refining an advanced, self-cleaning electro-coagulation system that provides unparalleled performance in separating solids from difficult liquid wastes, while generating clean gray water and recovering valuable nutrients in a usable form for agriculture. Clean Wave has also developed a revolutionary low energy drying technology that simply offers the most energy, time and cost-efficient drying option in the marketplace for a broad spectrum of products, creating outstanding market opportunities. More than $ 3 million has gone into developing the technologies to this point and they are very close to ready for commercialization. The technologies have application in the following markets.
Moderate to large dairies and other concentrated animal feeding operations;
Renewable energy facilities focusing on waste to energy applications;
Corn ethanol plants, distilleries and breweries;
Food processing plants;
Municipal wastewater treatment plants;
Oil & Gas Drilling and Hydraulic Fracturing Sites;
We seek equity investment to fabricate the newest designs and to demonstrate them in the field in preparation for commercialization. We anticipate gross margins well beyond 45% and as high as 61% for some projects..
Products / Services
Clean Wave’s ecoFloc™ system has demonstrated impressive separation of even the most challenging liquid wastes, like dairy waste water. Traditional treatment for dairy waste water discharge treated waste containing on average 3.5% to 7% solids. This represents a source of odor and greenhouse gas emissions. Clean Wave can reduce total solids discharge to less than 1%, dramatically reducing dairy waste management costs as well as reducing odor and GHG footprint. Clean Wave can profitably process dairy waste water for under $0.007 per gallon, which is expected to the average processing fee Clean Wave expects to charge dairies.
Drying of various materials used to bed cows at large dairies
The ecoFlash™ Drying System is a highly innovative and efficient, low-energy drying technology that removes free moisture at up to 90% less energy than the best thermal drying technologies. it is applicable to a wide variety of wastes and products, including several products in common use at dairies. Dairy cows are bedded on a variety of materials ranging from dewatered dairy manure fiber, to sand, sawdust and other agricultural materials. Bedding materials represent a significant cost to the dairy and moisture levels in recycled bedding is of great concern. High moisture leads to bacterial growth and higher bacterial counts in milk. This lowers milk revenue, lowers milk production and increase cost for vets and medication. There is strong market interest in efficient drying of bedding materials. Clean Wave can profitably dry materials at a fee of $ 3 to $4 per cubic yard. Market research has shown strong interest at this pricing level.
Recylced Fiber used as Peat replacement.
Clean Wave has a method for extracting fiber from raw dairy waste that eliminate most of the solubel salts, resulting in a more valuable peat replacement. Branded as ZeoFiber, Clean Wave will be selling several formulations ranging from a basic peat replacement to advanced potting mixes based on dairy fiber and a key natural mineral that provides moisture control while also providing a slow release nitrogen source. Clean wave has partnered with two companies to develop and market these dairy fiber based mixes and there is strong demand in the horticulture industry.
Demand for peat moss replacement is based on environmental and sustainability concerns associated with the mining of peat bogs. Most sphagnum peat moss in the US is imported from Canada. The harvest season is short and prices are variable based on production. Demand for a replacement is strong and growing. It is difficult to estimate the market size since there is no broadly accepted replacement on the market.
