Meet the Team

Our sector experts build on experiences in several fields of expertise relevant to the deployment of wastewater treatment and green energy

Bjoern Pietruschka

Managing Director

Bjoern is a Biotech Engineer with over 15 years of professional experience in the water sector before joining Aquature. 

He started and managed several Research facilities before launching ventures and also served as a member of corporate executive committees advising on large renewable energy and water projects in Southern Africa.

At Aquature, he drives the client focused business to help industries transition towards a NetZero future.

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.

This is how we do it

Aquature designs, owns, installs and operates your wastewater treatment system with no upfront capital investment. You only pay a service charge per cubic metre of wastewater treated and for the green chemicals you want to recirculate and use in your process.

Our turnkey solution can be deployed on site as a stand-alone facility or connected to the sewer system
