Thomas Fudge Wins January's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award!

Thu, 01 March 2018

Thomas Fudge won January's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award for his business, WASE.
WASE has a decentralised sanitation system to treat wastewater onsite, producing a hydrogen-based biogas (H2, CH4 & CO2) while removing the pollutants in wastewater. The treatment process is carried out with microbial electrolysis cells that use a biofilm to break down the organic compounds. With the addition of their electrochemical process, WASE can produce hydrogen with higher efficiencies than water electrolysis. WASE also recovers the nutrients within the wastewater to be reused in fertilisers, and the water can either be discharged safely back into the environment or recirculated on site reducing water consumption.
Commiserations to Chris Guest (LightBug), Benedicte Kiasi (Give Sell Hire), Haydn Kirkman (Airshare Transfers) and Isaac Ramonet (Pure Air Industries) who were shortlisted but did not win this time and are encouraged to reapply.
