374Water Inc. (“374Water”) is excited to announce that its Supercritical Water Oxidation Water (SCWO) resource recovery technology was voted the 2020 WEFTEC Innovation Pavilion Champion!
In this year’s virtual Innovation Pavilion, Water Environment Federation (“WEF”) and its Innovation Partners, BlueTech Research and Imagine H2O featured 18 impressive technology companies exhibiting in WEFTEC Connect. Prior to the event, WEF, BlueTech Research and Imagine H2O asked the water world to "Watch" the companies short pitches and "Vote" for your favorites. When the votes were tallied, 374Water was the winner.
“374Water is honored to win the 2020 WEFTEC Innovation Pavilion Championship. We were up against 17 innovative technology companies that are creating tremendous value for the water industry,” said Kobe Nagar, CEO of 374Water Inc. “Waste is the ultimate resource.

It is a superior, sustainable and cost-effective technology applicable to urban and rural communities and industrial waste generators.”
374Water is commercializing a novel, patent pending Supercritical Water Oxidation (SCWO) process developed by Duke University and 374Water Inc., of Durham, North Carolina. SCWO has the potential to shift the wastewater paradigm from end of pipe treatment to resource recovery. It harnesses energy embedded in the waste stream undergoing treatment, while enabling recovery of clean water and minerals, paving the way for efficient resources recovery from all kinds of sludges and biosolids. The process is fast, clean and a net energy producer. Moreover, the benefits of SCWO empower organizations to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
