Elateq and PepsiCo Contract to Use Greener, Cost-Effective Water Treatment Technology

Elateq’s patent-pending advanced electrochemical technology allows removal of pathogens, organic and inorganic contaminants, metals and other materials in water using less energy while recovering more water.

PepsiCo launched its green initiative and hired Elateq to install its unique filtration systems at all the multinational company’s plants.

“We will be turning wastewater into potable water in all of their manufacturing plants all over the world,” he said.

Trials of the water treatment and recovery system will begin at PepsiCo.’s plants in the United States in the spring. After that PepsiCo. will start adding Elateq’s modular units to plants in the United States and Europe and recently added India to its contract, Anderson said.
