About

WaterSaver Technologies, LLC, was established to deliver water saver products to a world desperate for conservation. Their most recent innovation is a patented (#6,276,005) water saving device called the AQUS®.

The AQUS is based on the concept that using fresh water to flush the toilet is both unnecessary and wasteful. The AQUS system conserves water by reusing greywater from the bathroom sink to flush the toilet, thereby conserving the fresh water normally used. The device is a low maintenance, low cost, and highly effective water saving device.

The AQUS is a small scale system for conserving water, and has a wide range of water saving applications including single family residences, apartments, condominiums, hotels, office buildings, schools, and government buildings. The system can assist architects, engineers, and developers in achieving their LEED certification and green building goals by contributing to water efficiency, waste water reduction and innovation points. WaterSaver Technologies produces Water Saving Products that support Green Building. WaterSaver Technologies is dedicated to delivering superior water saver products and is continually developing products to reach that goal.

The AQUS Greywater Recycling System

The AQUS is a small scale greywater recycling system that uses treated water that is captured from the bathroom sink to flush the toilet – and accomplish greywater recycling in the process.

The system consists of two parts; 1) the Fill Control Unit and 2) the Vanity Tank. The Fill Control Unit effectively clips onto the back of the customer’s toilet and holds the fill valve up, in the off position, which allows the Vanity Tank located under the bathroom sink to fill the tank with treated and recycled sink water. The system does not shut off the fresh water supply or cross connect to it. It simply holds the fresh water “OFF” until it is needed to supplement the toilet fill.

About
ecopod was incorporated in August of 2005 in the state of California, USA.

Beyond the practical value of home recycling, part of the broad ecopod mission is to help create a clean environment and preserve our natural resources. By increasing beverage container recycling, the ecopod will raise the average consumer’s eco-consciousness resulting in increased diversion rates of all recyclable products.

Ultimately, both the private and public sector benefit when large quantities of recyclable materials areecopod returned to the stream of commerce. This influx of high-value commodities supports more jobs and economic activity (US Recycling Economic Information Study). ecopod’s unique go-to-market strategy, along with its “first position” in the market, will offer consumers, retailers, industry and government a triple win of social, environmental and economic gain.

Product
With an ecopod in the kitchen , pantry or laundry room, families will now have a simple, aesthetically pleasing, and rewarding way to process recylcables. The ecopod e1 home recycling center features removable storing containers for glass bottles, paper, plastic bags, or other recyclable material. Insert aluminum cans and plastic bottles into the top, and step on the pedal to hear the sweet sound of compaction via the patented ecostep system. Flattened containers automatically fall into a portable pod for redemption or curbside collection of 50-60 crushed containers.

Designed and manufactured in Britain, Greenbottle is a biodegradable milk bottle that uses a smart two-part system to aid recycling. The bottles are composed of a cardboard outer manufactured from pulped, recycled cardboard, which is lined with an inner sleeve of biodegradable plastic made from corn starch. The plastic keeps the cardboard from becoming soggy, and the cardboard makes for easy transport, storage and pouring. Once the bottle is empty, the inner sleeve can be pulled out and will decompose in a landfill within six weeks. The cardboard outer can be put out for recycling with other paper or thrown in with kitchen and garden waste for home composting.

Greenbottle just went through a week-long test run at an Asda supermarket, where the new milk jugs sold out quickly. The bottles currently cost up to 30% more than their plastic counterparts, but costs will go down once production steps up.

About

From activists to engineers 
Nature Mill aims to make a difference. They diligently recycle paper, bottles, and cans. They read newspapers online to cut down on paper. They favor environmentally friendly products and packaging. Some of the employees even walk or bike to work. But despite their commitment to “the 3Rs” – reduce, reuse, recycle – they still produce shameful amounts of trash.

Nature Mill ventured head first into backyard composting. A humble kitchen crock diverts an impressive amount of trash from the kitchen to an outdoor compost pile. And unlike other forms of recycling, composting uses no chemicals, fossil fuels, or other environmentally harmful materials.

But a few months into their compost adventure, reality set in. It smells! It’s dirty! Turning the pile each month is backbreaking! It’s definitely no fun in the cold and rainy months. And besides, not everyone has a backyard. We should be able to engineer a better solution.
A Chance Discovery
Then a funny thing happened. Someone went away on vacation without emptying the kitchen compost crock. A nasty surprise awaited his return — the smell, the flies, and a very unpleasant clean-up job.

While grudgingly cleaning out the compost crock, he noticed it was warm. Microorganisms were hard at work! The compost process had begun! Just a little more oxygen, some mechanical mixing, and a strong air filter would accelerate the process and eliminate the odors and bugs. Dozens of patents and prototypes later, the NatureMill was born.

Products

The BigBelly ® System is a patented compacting trash receptacle that is completely self-powered. Instead of requiring a grid connection, BigBelly uses solar power for 100% of its energy needs. The unit takes up as much space as the “footprint” of an ordinary receptacle—but its capacity is five times greater. Increased capacity reduces collection trips and can cut fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions by 80%. BigBelly also provides cost efficiencies from labor savings, fuel cost and maintenance savings, as well as environmental benefits from reduced emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants. Safe, easy to use, and designed to keep out pests, the BigBelly has already proven its worth in urban streets, parks, colleges, arenas—and in all weather conditions.

History

Seahorse Power Company was founded in 2003 with a mission to solve environmental problems through the use of innovative cost-saving devices. We continue that mission today.

Originally, Founder Jim Poss investigated ambitious new approaches to geothermal power plants and offshore wind energy—the nexus of the name Seahorse Power (horsepower from the sea). As he pursued his work, he started to realize that environmental problems everywhere needed solving and he turned his attention to the challenges of waste management.

While doing an independent study in business school, Poss learned that garbage trucks consume over 1 billion gallons of diesel each year in the U.S. alone. The vehicles get only 2.8 mpg on average, and they are one of the most expensive vehicles to operate. Drawing on this insight, as well as his experience in electric vehicle engineering and an enthusiasm for environmental solutions, Poss formed a new company—one that gave birth to the world’s first solar-powered compactor.

To date, over 1,000 BigBellies have been sold across the U.S. and in 10 countries around the world. Improvements have been made to the orginal machine and the newest version is 200 lbs lighter with a 33% smaller footprint. The product line has expanded to include BigBelly accessories such as animal latch, advertising panels and companion recycling container. New innovations are being developed including a BigBelly wireless notification system and a larger commercial scale version of BigBelly.

About

Seahorse Power Company was founded in 2003 with a mission to reduce fossil fuel consumption through innovative cost-saving approaches to inefficient, everyday problems.

Our BigBelly product was so successful, we changed our name to BigBelly Solar and refocused the company around a central business proposition: saving fuel is environmentally and fiscally sound.

Today, BigBelly Solar is changing the concept of waste collection by implementing on-site solar compaction systems. Our flagship product, the BigBelly, can be found around the world, reducing pollution by cutting down the frequency of trash collection trips.

At BigBelly Solar, we are committed to improving the environment and economies of the world by utilizing efficient approaches to everyday problems.
