In many instances, it is the obvious things in life that represent the best investment opportunities. Items that are used each and every day with little or no thought. Add this idea to not being able to literally live without a product and a sure fire way to profit is at hand. There aren’t too many of these items in the world but they are right in front of investors each and every day; air, water and, to a degree, food.
ThermoEnergy Corp., an integrated technologies company, works to develop and market clean water and energy products. The company focuses its efforts on waste water treatment processes where nitrogen/ammonia removal systems may represent capital and cost constraints to municipal and industrial users. Resulting by-product opportunities are also a leading source of revenue for the company.
While many other natural resources receive a majority of attention in an energy oriented world, ThermoEnergy Corporation has chosen to focus its efforts on wastewater. Many indicate that, in the not too distant future, water will be the most valuable commodity in the world. ThermoEnergy is playing off of this coming reality and is working to save, clean and profit by its use and reuse. The company is currently working with a unique process that removes nitrogen/ammonia from waste water in such a way that the needed systems are smaller, less expensive and more economical in operation (30% less operational costs.) The system also generates a marketable by-product in the form of an inexpensive fertilizer and several types of biofuels. Presently, the company’s focus is on the water treatment aspect of the process as it begins work on a New York City 500,000 gallon per day water treatment facility.
Past the sale and marketing of the company’s water treatment equipment, it has found that its treatment process provides for the sale and reduction of waste water treatment by-products. Invariably, there is a by-product from waste water treatment called sludge. In most instances (95%), waste water treatment plants generate a sludge that is hazardous to humans, causing storage and cost issues. The company’s process leads to a different kind of sludge that is less harmful to humans. It is also rated as acceptable by the EPA to be burned as a fuel (industrial fuels for cement kilns, waste to energy plants and alike.)
Ultimately, this result leads to the customer, or the company, being able to realize a secondary revenue source from the overall process. With a recently added waste water and filtration company called CASTion Inc., ThermoEnergy is quickly presenting itself as a leader in the waste water treatment and bio-fuels marketplace. As people realize that water is more valuable than any other natural resource, ThermoEnergy Corp. will be ready to capitalize with a ready-made source of clean water and profit.
