Company Summary

Arbsource is developing wastewater treatment systems for the food & beverage industry, cutting painfully expensive water and power bills to achieve a 3-year average payback on 20-year product lifetime. Our patented biotechnology, called the Arbcell, uses fuel-cell inspired equipment seeded with naturally occurring bacteria to harvest the chemical energy released from the breakdown of wastewater pollutants like sugars and starches.
