About Algaewheel
Algaewheel is a proprietary technology developed by OneWater Inc. that brings wastewater treatment into the 21st century. The cornerstone of OneWater’s innovative, Algaewheel Rotating Algal Contactor design is the natural production of oxygen by algae to significantly reduce aeration costs that are typical in wastewater treatment. This biological aeration feature supercharges treatment while reducing energy use. In addition, the Algaewheel process mimics nature’s mutualistic algal-bacterial biofilms where both algae and bacteria benefit and thrive from coexisting together. The result is a low-energy, self-sustaining ecosystem that autonomously delivers treatment with less operator attention. Nutrient reduction in the Algaewheel system occurs by both bacterial and algal processes.

Algaewheel features a contemporary greenhouse enclosure or cover system to combine the ideal wastewater treatment environment with the aesthetics that make it easy to integrate into any community. Algaewheel transforms the viability of wastewater treatment for communities, developments and other domestic treatment facilities with flows up to 250,000 gpd.
