ChloBis Water, Inc.

A staggering 800 million people currently lack sufficient access to fresh water, and global water demand is expected to increase by 70 percent over the next 30 years. At the same time, pervasive drought conditions, climate change, and anthropogenic activities (e.g., road salt, water softener salt) are causing existing water sources to get saltier. Water desalination plays a central role in addressing issues related to both water scarcity and water quality. However, desalination is failing to live up to its full potential; the high energy requirements and the production of a concentrated waste product make desalination impractical for many applications.

𝐂𝐡𝐥𝐨𝐁𝐢𝐬 𝐖𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐫 is on a mission to unlock the potential of water desalination through the development of a revolutionary desalination battery. Our technology combines the functions of salt removal, energy generation/storage, and commodity chemical production to address challenges at the intersection of the water-energy nexus. We are currently exploring potential technology applications, including seawater desalination, brackish water desalination, and wastewater treatment.
ChloBis Water is based in Madison, WI and is built by a team that is passionate about using innovative science to ensure affordable access to fresh water. We are supported by the National Science Foundation, Activate fellowship, and climate tech investors.
