Epic Cleantec Raises $9.4M in Funding

Epic Cleantec, a San Francisco CA-based water reuse technology company, raised $9.4M in funding.

The round was led by the family office of Dr. Kathy Fields and Dr. Garry Rayant, with participation from J-Ventures, J-Impact, and investors from a previous round comprised of VCs, real estate leaders, and prominent entrepreneurs, including Elizabeth Cutler, SoulCycle’s founder and former CEO, and Peter Yolles, water technology investor and advisor.

The company intends to use the funds to expand geographically and deepen its portfolio of technology offerings.

Led by CEO Aaron Tartakovsky, Epic Cleantec has developed water reuse technology that deploys onsite water treatment and reuse systems into individual buildings or groups of buildings, converting building wastewater into treated water for non-potable applications, natural soil amendments, and recovered wastewater heat energy. Its onsite water reuse approach captures and treats a building’s wastewater, purifying it to high standards for reuse in non-potable applications, such as toilet flushing, irrigation, cooling towers, and laundry.

Born out of initial work with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Reinvent the Toilet Challenge,” Epic is now used by players in real estate including Crescent Heights, Westbank Corporation, and Related California.

The company is offering complimentary consultations to real estate developers and owners, architects, contractors, engineers, and sustainability consultants across the nation.
