The announcement follows Mott's recent acquisition of Digested Organics, ZwitterCo’s North American channel partner since 2021. Digested Organics uses filtration solutions to convert organic wastes, such as manure, digestate, food & beverage manufacturing wastes, and other high strength wastewaters, into clean water, concentrated co-products, and when possible, renewable energy.

“Anaerobic digesters are an important technology in combatting climate change, as they generate renewable natural gas and organic fertilizers from food and agricultural wastes. However, the wastewater from digesters, called digestate, can be expensive to dispose of and is challenging to treat,” explained Alex Rappaport, CEO of ZwitterCo. “We are excited to partner with the team at Mott, which has terrific expertise in delivering complex, customized solutions into highly technical industries.”

With the acquisition of Digested Organics earlier this year, Mott is expanding its business by incorporating broader water and agricultural solutions into its clean energy portfolio.

“We have found ZwitterCo’s membranes to offer a significant improvement relative to existing polymeric options on the market today,” said Pat Hill, VP and GM of Mott’s North American Process Systems business. “Integrating ZwitterCo’s products into our turn-key filtration systems means Mott and our new team members at Digested Organics can offer a best-in-class solution for onsite wastewater treatment, water reuse, and co-product generation”
