A Profile of the Massachusetts Water Industry: A Global Leader in Innovation and Sustainability -
In an age where millions do not have access to clean drinking water and potential or actual water crises are headline news, Massachusetts is fostering companies and initiatives that aim to conserve water, develop hydropower, and make water safer to drink. Though Massachusetts’s top universities, think tanks, and engineering and consulting firms — such as HDR and AECOM, which have an established presence in Massachusetts — focus on water research and technology, it is the state government’s emphasis on cultivating innovative water start-ups that sets it apart as a true industry leader. Massachusetts is home to nearly 30 water start-ups, all of which are national and international leaders in fields including forward osmosis, engineered membranes, extracting biogases from wastewater, microbial fuel cell treatment, nitrogen removal, ozone sanitization, creating nonporous membranes, underwater power management, and nutrient recovery from water.
