Drylet’s solution for sewage sludge reduction also featured in Schneider Electric’s whitepaper “The Business Case for One-Planet Prosperity”


HOUSTON, Texas (Aug. 7, 2019) – Aqua Assist, the innovative sewage sludge reduction solution by Drylet, was awarded the prestigious Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label. At a time when fecal sludge management is being increasingly regulated around the world, Drylet is excited to receive this recognition of its advantageous position in the battle to bring ecological solutions to an ever-expanding environmental challenge for our planet.

“After years of educating the market about the environmental and financial benefits of reducing the amount of sludge produced by wastewater treatment, we feel encouraged that the Solar Impulse Foundation identified our solution as a valuable option to improve organic waste management,” said Dr. Malcolm Fabiyi, Chief Operations Officer at Drylet.

Drylet’s innovative bioremediation technology boosts nature’s capacity to handle organic waste from human activity, providing a cost-effective solution to address the increasingly overwhelming challenge of solid waste accumulation at wastewater treatment facilities. The company’s business model is featured in Schneider Electric’s recent whitepaper “The Business Case for One-Planet Prosperity.”

Created by Bertrand Piccard, Initiator and Pilot of  Solar Impulse, the Solar Impulse Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life on Earth by fast-tracking the implementation of 1,000 profitable solutions that support the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals. Its Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label serves as a guarantee of quality to those looking to implement clean solutions.

Easily incorporated into the daily maintenance operations at any wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), Aqua Assist is a dry-to-the-touch product based on Drylet’s innovative microbe-delivery platform. Drylet’s proprietary biocatalysts—engineered porous particles loaded with non-genetically modified microbes—help WWTPs leverage the microbiology in their plants by accelerating the biological processes that convert biosolids into gas and water, reducing biosolids known as “sludge” by up to 70 percent with no capital investment.

In the process, Drylet gives WWTPs capacity back and lowers their energy consumption, while most of the industry is focused on adding capital intensive equipment that occupies precious space and adds to the energy load of the plant.

Aqua Assist significantly lowers the operational challenges and costs associated with handling, treating, and hauling solids. It helps wastewater treatment facilities conserve resources, boost operational efficiency, reduce environmental impacts, and comply with tightening regulations. It is easily scalable to facilities of any size. It has been deployed at some 60 municipal wastewater treatment plants and a dozen industrial sites in the United States and in Europe.
