The NuTree

Elegance in Sustainability

The NuTree is a powerful wastewater treatment and recycling system. Units are compact but modular, built to expand for customizable treatment volumes, perfect for the water demands of a growing world. The NuTree's low cost, low maintenance, self-powered design makes it easily accessible to even untrained users. Inspired by biology, it does all this with naturally occurring wetland plants and microbes.

Designed as high-tech ecosystems NuTrees, like nature, don’t let anything go to waste. Instead, wetland microbes transform waste into nutrient-rich water that is used to grow nutritious or decorative plants. Some of these microbes even generate electricity to power the unit. This cleans the water so we can recycle the resource.

Not only are our systems practical for smaller-scale water users but they also add aesthetic value. Add this to our odorless treatment, and wastewater no longer has to be annoyance but can now be a vibrant showcase of one’s commitment to sustainability.



NuTree for Breweries

Save Water, Brew More

The craft beer market is exploding with little signs of slowing down. With more beer can come 10 times as much water, full of contaminants. The high volume and strength of brewery wastewater burdens the otherwise expanding industry with expensive fees.

The NuTree design fits for breweries that are too small for pricey conventional methods, such as on site treatment plants, or those that want to supplement other wastewater management practices. And even if a brewery is lucky to be in a place with low water fees, a showcase NuTree can add value through greenery or farm to table programs.


Pilot Program

Are you an early adopter? Consider participating in NuLeaf's Pilot Program and you could have a NuTree operating at your brewery for less than $10,000. Breweries enrolled in the pilot program with receive a 30% discount on the NuTree system as well as a 25% discount on our services for 3 years. We will work closely with you to cater our technology to your businesses needs. For a free consultation, contact us via our contact link below.


Additional Applications

The NuTree is a versatile system. 

It works great with microbreweries and brewpubs, but was designed to be utilized in various sectors.  The low-space modular design and suave aesthetics help NuTrees blend in wherever they are installed.  From a cabin to a cattle farm, if you have one NuTree or twenty, they will look like they belong.  


How Can the NuTree Do So Much?

We use nature's machinery to clean water just as efficiently and with more perks than conventional options.

The Nutree cleans and recycles wastewater using three complementary technologies - engineered wetlands, hydroponics, and microbial fuel cells.  These technologies use natural methods, like the symbiotic relationship between wetland microbes and plants, to clean dirty water and make power. These base technologies have been used in a variety of settings to treat wastewater, including agriculture, municipalities, desalination, and coal mine remediation.

Combining these technologies provides powerful, comprehensive treatment that is accessible to many individuals, communities, and industries and empowers them with resource independence. Seeing wastewater through nature’s lens is a revolutionary step that brings us closer to a zero waste society.


Off-Grid and Rural Living

While living off grid can be an exciting adventure there are countless rural residents that municipal treatment facilities can’t easily service. These individuals and communities often rely on septic tanks (which don’t actually treat wastewater), or no treatment system at all.


Whether it’s an individual who has chosen to live off grid or a community in a developing nation, the NuTree can provide a local source of essential resources. It’s self-maintaining design is reliable and non-toxic, providing much needed stability and safety in remote places.

Urban Farming and Landscaping

On the other end of the spectrum are crowded, rapidly growing cities.These areas can be laden with logistical challenges when it comes to treating and recycling waste, as well challenges in providing food and water to the people living there.

The NuTree can help cities blaze a trail towards sustainability without demanding large investments in space or training for treatment workers. The compact, modular devices are perfect for providing food and water for citizens as well as adding much needed greenery to areas where space is a concern, but growth is always on the horizon.
