Aquature Company

We build on over a decade of hands-on experience on Bio-electrochemical wastewater treatment to roll out cutting-edge innovation.

Our solutions use the combination of microorganisms and renewable electricity to simultaneously remove pollutants and mine resources from wastewater. This allows us to help businesses transition into sustainable wastewater treatment, carbon-neutral fuels, and green chemicals.

Steffen Georg

Founder & Chief Technology Officer

Steffen has worked with bio-electrochemical systems and biotechnology as a researcher and engineer in several academic settings (TU Munich, Wageningen UR, Wetsus) prior to founding Aquature.

During his PhD, he worked on cutting edge ammonia recovery tech based on microbial electrolysis that removes almost 100% of ammonia from highly concentrated wastewaters at Wageningen UR and Wetsus.

At Aquature, he continues to develop bio-energy processes and to help customers discover the value in their wastewaters and achieve the green energy transition.

Ahmed Ismail

Founder & Director of Customer Development

Ahmed managed multi-million dollar projects at major market players in the renewable energy sector before joining Deep Science Ventures.

He lead opportunity analysis in alternative fuels and chemicals at DSV and mapped out out key constraints holding back innovation in the Carbon Neutral Fuel space (across tech, market and funding realms).

Together with Ahmed, we identified key areas of expertise and resources that need to be brought together to create clean fuels from wastewater.
