Globally, over 80% of wastewater is left untreated and discharged into the environment, the equivalent of two million Olympic swimming pools of wastewater polluting our land and waterways every day. In addition, each year the UK alone sends 7.2 million tonnes of unavoidable food waste to landfill which releases greenhouse gases into the environment as it decomposes.
WASE aims to help create a world where waste will become a sustainable source of energy, fertiliser and water, enabling communities to flourish. WASE looks to achieve this by accelerating the global adoption of circular waste treatment through affordable and accessible innovations.
"We were thrilled to have Elbow Beach Capital lead WASE’s seed funding round. It has been a pleasure to work with JP and his team and to learn about their ambitions to help grow the next generation of businesses creating a sustainable future. We are excited to start this journey with Elbow Beach, so together, we can unlock the power of waste to make it the fuel of the future.” - Dr. Thomas Fudge, CEO
