DripCycle Wins 2018 Silicon Valley Water Conservation Award for Innovation
Innovation – DripCycle is a Mountain View-based startup founded by recent college graduates. They invented a first of its kind, chemical-free, plug-and-play water savings system for commercial buildings that collects water produced from air conditioning units, along with rainwater, to be used for landscaping, cooling towers and more. Their patented 3-stage filtration system takes five minutes to clean, is 100% self-contained and is small enough to fit in the back of an SUV. DripCycle’s first Silicon Valley-based client was Dennis Kobza & Associates, an architecture firm in Mountain View. DripCycle also has installed two units at Loyola Marymount University, and another at the Black Canyon Center in Phoenix. Each system can save anywhere from 100,000 - 1.2 million gallons of water per year, depending on the size and use of the building.
