– Enhancing water supply resiliency by unlocking nitrate-contaminated groundwater
Climate change can impact critical water supplies, especially in agricultural regions where water contamination by nitrate has already led to the shutdown of thousands of wells. Microvi’s innovative technology, called Microvi MNE, uses nature’s own billion-year-old solution to turn nitrate into harmless nitrogen gas. Physical or chemical technologies for nitrate simply concentrate it, thereby producing a hazardous waste stream. This waste stream is expensive to manage and potentially damaging to the environment. Microvi’s nature-based solution for nitrate can be faster, more reliable and less expensive than any available technology–without producing a secondary waste stream.
