Expanding presence will help to address regulatory and sustainability pressures for companies in Europe and plays a key role in Aquacycl’s growth plans.
Today, Aquacycl officially inaugurates their presence in Europe with a celebration at their European headquarters in the WaterCampus in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands. The WaterCampus brings together stakeholders from across the water sector to create synergy for world class innovation, education and entrepreneurship, and strengthen the global position of the European water technology sector.
Europe plays an important role in Aquacycl’s growth plans, as the regulatory, disclosure and consumer preferences drive adoption of technologies that help companies to meet their ESG goals. As companies in Europe and beyond are increasingly under pressure to achieve net zero carbon and water targets, they are looking to new technologies to close the gap. Opening an office in Europe made sense for Aquacycl to effectively address these regulatory changes and drivers.
“Aquacycl’s decentralized wastewater treatment as a service helps companies treat some of the most challenging wastewaters, with 90% lower greenhouse gas emissions,” commented Orianna Bretschger, CEO and Founder at Aquacycl. “The guaranteed compliance, cost savings, significant energy savings and GHG emissions reduction addresses the major drivers for our corporate clients. As regulations in Europe and around the world continue to get stricter, and companies are forced to disclose, mitigate, and pay for emissions, solutions like Aquacycl’s provide a win-win, providing sustainability and operational benefits.”
After a thorough evaluation of different countries’ water clusters, Aquacycl ultimately settled on The Netherlands, and the Water Alliance. The Water Alliance at the WaterCampus plays a pivotal role in helping Aquacycl achieve their European expansion plans, by creating strong connections within the regional and international water sector, providing lab resources for water quality testing and staffing support for operating wastewater sample tests, as well as strong connection with research and development teams to continuously innovate the system development. Throughout the evaluation and setup process, Aquacycl received tremendous support from the Water Alliance, Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA) and Investment and Development Agency for the Northern Netherlands (NOM), as well as the economic team of the municipality of Leeuwarden.
“We are thrilled to welcome Aquacycl to the WaterCampus,” stated Hein Molenkamp, Managing Director at Water Alliance. “This helps to showcase what an important role Water Alliance is playing in driving innovation and global collaboration in the water sector. We are proud to have companies that are addressing some of our most challenging water problems choosing to join us at the WaterCampus. Our community of diverse stakeholders helps set the foundation for success for companies in the water sector.”
