Nobska Technologies, Inc.

Location:CA, US
Speaker:Patrick O\'Regan
Title:President
Primary Industry:Water
Executive Summary:Nobska Technologies\' mission is to become the residential water reuse solution provider. Water is quickly becoming a scarce resource. In fact, water is predicted to be the next oil as large urban areas, like Las Vegas, face the likelihood that they will run out of water in the next 10 years. Less than four percent of the earth\'s water supply is available for consumption. However, human growth and development continues to quickly outpace our ability to supply clean water. By developing a marketable greywater system for residential use, Nobska plans to change our current approach to water. Currently there is little reuse of water. Water is supplied as drinkable quality blue water, used once and discharged as blackwater. Some water known as greywater (lauindry and shower water) can be treated and reused for landscaping and other light uses. Nobska Technologies is developing a small scale, modularized water processing system designed to source separate household waste water for intelligent reuse. Greywater will be identified and further treated to make it suitable for reuse for residential landscaping and other light use applications.
