How Risky is an Investment in Wastewater / Sewage {heat} Recovery?

IWS is highly speculative, but no more so than early-stage biotech or emerging metals/mining/minerals companies. In fact, IWS is already generating millions in revenue, with minimal cash burn. The Company has 12 systems in the field and a solid pipeline of engineering work underway in support of many more.

By winning just a few contracts from global water utilities, town or city municipalities, multi-unit residential housing & commercial buildings, IWS could generate run-rate annual revenue in the $10’s of millions, as soon as next year.

Management is in active discussions with numerous parties in North / South America & Europe. Large contract wins, if achieved, would take time to design and construct, so the booking of potential revenue would be difficult to pin down. However, since larger mandates would be with high-quality entities, the market’s reaction to news would likely be positive.  Even without knowing or being able to estimate revenues, I believe the market opportunity is immense and the blue-sky potential for the Company is strong. 

So How Do These Things Work?

Evidence of proprietary IP can easily be found in IWS’ installed base. There are no cookie-cutter solutions, each system is expertly engineered and tailor fit. Please take the time to view 3 brief videos, the Corporate VideoLatest Installations and About Sewage Heat Recovery. These do an excellent job of demonstrating, describing & explaining the technology. Essentially, the technology diverts wastewater / sewage coming from say, taking a hot shower, and passes it through a heat exchanger, where the heat (not the water itself) is converted to thermal energy to be re-used. The energy and monetary savings derives from the temperature of ambient water heading into a hot water boiler, being significantly warmer than otherwise, thereby requiring less energy (and fewer GHG) to heat it in the boiler.
