EnBiorganic provides water treatment-as-a-service (TaaS). It’s microbiology process digests wastewater sludge, controls FOG (fat, oil and grease), breaks down pollutants and solids, and controls odor and corrosion.

The company’s system consists of a compact generator unit compatible with existing infrastructure. It is easy to install, and its modular design is built for simple maintenance management.

The generator houses a custom consortium of soil microbiology specifically formulated for a particular site, trained to feed off the target diet, and then released into the wastewater environment, knowing its food source.

The generator is connected to an automated remote monitoring system, allowing EnBiorganic to fine-tune dispensing rates to match changes in the flows and conditions to optimize treatment.

Situation: The water treatment-as-a-service business model is attractive to customers as it requires no capital expenditure by the customer, and the system is autonomous and remotely controlled by EnBiorganic.

Complication: However, the generator at each location is a five-figure investment. The company needs to borrow externally to finance EnBiorganic capex additions as the business scales.

Solution: Bertzman provided a loan facility to pay for the onsite capital investments as the company grows.

“Our system is truly a game changer,” commented Darrell Liski, CEO of Enbiorganic. “For example, by utilizing EnBiorganic technology, the city of Jal, New Mexico was able to cancel a planned $20-25 million investment in new treatment facilities. That would have been a significant investment for a small city of 3,500 people.”

“We don’t often find a new technology that has the cost and operational implications inherent in the system offered by Darrel’s company,” noted Neil Berman of Bertzman.” What’s really interesting is that they are using microbiology that is akin to the makeup of everyday ground soil. Said another way, the company is using nature’s way of managing wastewater without the need for harmful chemicals.”
