Organica Facilities Around the World
A proven solution adopted by the largest water companies and EPC contractors. Over 2 decades of experience. More than 120 plants operating or under construction worldwide.
Established in 1998, Organica began as a traditional wastewater design-build company focused exclusively on the Hungarian market. During the first nine years of its life the company built and/or operated nearly 100 municipal, commercial, and industrial wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), using a variety of different technologies, for clients ranging from large municipalities to multinational companies such as GM, Audi, Alcoa, Shell, Suzuki and GE. During this nine-year span, Organica also invested significantly into R&D, with a goal of developing its own Fixed Film solution for biological wastewater treatment. In 2007 Organica sold its design-build business to focus exclusively on the commercialization of its own biological wastewater treatment solution, the Organica Food Chain Reactor (FCR). In an Organica FCR facility, almost all of the biomass is fixed on the natural (plant) and engineered (patented biofiber media) root structures, resulting in low suspended solids throughout each stage of the treatment process.
Today, Organica is an international company with offices on six different continents, and the world leader in bringing sustainable wastewater solutions to communities all over the world, with more than 110 facilities in 16 different countries.
For the Wastewater Facility, Organica offers core products and services to enable construction of a complete WWTP based on the Organica Food Chain Reactor (FCR) facility, which is a type of Fixed-Film Activated Sludge system utilizing a fixed-bed biofilm that grows on both natural (plant) and engineered (patented bio-fiber media) root structures, all housed in a compact, odorless, botanical garden-like facility. The result is a wastewater facility which offers a significantly reduced physical footprint, zero “psychological” footprint, and lower operational and infrastructure costs when compared to other activated sludge-based wastewater treatment solutions.
Organica’s offering for Operations Management pulls together our expertise in process design, bio-kinetic modelling, and analytical sensors/instruments with Digital Software to help facility owners run their wastewater facility reliably and efficiently, 24/7/365. Our flexible solutions cover the full spectrum from complete Operations and Maintenance to basic Digital Monitoring, allowing clients to start small and progress as they see the savings.

Organica Water’s Mission
To provide products and services which enable customers all over the world to build and operate space and energy efficient biological wastewater treatment plants that blend harmoniously into urban and residential population centers, ultimately lowering infrastructure costs and facilitating reuse and recycling of treated wastewater.
How We Communicate
We believe in radical transparency. Being truly open is empowering. When every Organican has all the information, it limits politics, facilitates collaborative solutions, and creates a true meritocracy. Most of all we believe that being transparent with everyone – from employees, to customers, to partners – gives us the best chance to create value and ultimately to win.
Who We Are
More than any other value, this defines us. We believe diversity results in better outcomes and a more complete understanding of the world. We show a mutual respect for other cultures, and innate curiosity to understand those that are not the same.
Einstein said “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” Learning is top priority at Organica, so making mistakes is part of our process. However when they do happen, the key is that Organicans find solutions and implement them. We take responsibility. No apologies. No excuses. We take ownership and find the way forward with new ideas and approaches.
Using Scale to Drive Change
Everyone sees the challenges (water scarcity, poverty, climate change) facing the world today, but Organicans are ready to do something about it. However we don’t believe this can be done one WWTP at a time. Our mission is to have the largest and broadest IMPACT on this planet in the short time we have on it. Everything we do as a company, and as individuals, is driven by this goal. For an Organican it is not about winning one project… it is about finding ways to scale so we can change the way people think about wastewater forever.
Together We Stand
Organica is a workplace built on collaboration and teamwork, with a foundation of mutual respect for each individual personality/culture. We stand together as one team, united in our objectives to maximize our impact on this planet. As passionate individuals we may be successful, but ONLY if we stand together as one team, will we truly reach our common goals.
At Organica, what we are trying to do is not easy. We are working to transform an industry that hasn’t changed in over 100 years. It takes a special kind of faith and focus to achieve this greatness. It’s that special “something” we look for in every Organican… the dedication to push the industry limits and excel to extraordinary levels. It’s only with this approach that Organica can achieve its mission of changing the way the world views wastewater treatment.
