Custom Formulations Engineered for Long-Term Water Quality Improvement

What Makes AquaChar Unique?

Pond & aquarium owners have a tense relationship with carbon after poor-quality activated fossil coal caused aquarist’s favorite pets to develop pitted abrasions known as “hole-in-head disease”.

Passive bio-media made of rock, ceramic, plastic, etc. can cause a septic imbalance while engineered media often attract waste using metal oxides which can leach with improper use.

AquaChar is a sustainable natural alternative designed for superior clarity, balance, & stability easily maintained for the lifespan of the project.

Introducing a new philosophy for the use of carbon to the high-end fresh & saltwater industry provided thousands of individual case studies from “amateur water experts” documenting rapid decontamination & additional long-term benefits of AquaChar.

What AquaChar Does

A balanced aquatic ecosystem manages waste & contaminates in three ways: 1.) mechanical removal, 2.) biological breakdown, or 3.) chemical adsorption when dissolved.

AquaChar is a first-of-its-kind carbon bio-media engineered for easy management of two-thirds of nature’s water filtration needs.

The naturally enhanced porosity, larger size, and cleanliness rapidly creates self-cleaning biologically active microsites (B.A.M.S.) to provide crystal clear water while enhancing beneficial microbial communities by magnetically attracting food from water.


Continued success allows AquaChar to pursue additional use cases in places severely impacted by poor water quality.




Aquaculture for Food

Catfish farming is THE sustainable protein solution for 230M Nigerians

The daily decision for billions of people to risk of serious illness or death for drinking water inspired the team behind AquaChar to create the best possible product that provides long-term solutions anywhere in the world.

Maintaining water quality while raising 10,000+ rapidly growing hatchlings can result in a complete system collapse after weeks of husbandry, feed & fuel costs.

After 100% success rate on several struggling farms, AquaChar drew the attention of an Israeli water expert & aquaculture consultant in rural Africa who installed a 5-gallon AquaChar filter directly into the borehole.

Eighteen months later, the farm received an open contract for 3-gram fingerlings with the purchaser saying, “many other farmers are struggling, we have not seen fingerlings this active and healthy this year” upon visiting the farm.  





Wells & Boreholes

An orphanage in Uganda shares the blessing of clean water and sustainable agriculture

Constantine was responsible for forty children where the closest public water source was 5 km away when he realized onsite access to clean water was key to achieving self-sustainability.

When an associate gifted the children at Rosemary Child Love a borehole, AquaChar engineered a locally sourced filtration method and sent a package of water purification and agriculture AquaChar.

Relieved of the daily burden of retrieving water they provided the same relief to the local community. An elderly woman happily wept at the kindness of drinking water which didn’t need boiling “like I had as a child”.

A donation of seeds allowed them to transfer the time used retrieving water to sustainable agriculture using crop rotation to maintain healthy soil and consistent food production.

In just a year there are now eighty children, they have opened the Phoenix E Academy, and Rosemary Child Love has become a community center of shared blessings with those in need.







Clean Waterways

Large-scale Water Quality Improvement Targeting Tributaries of Contamination in Florida

“Clean Waterways, LLC started with a mission to use contaminant and nutrient removal technologies utilized in the aquarium & aquaculture industry for targeted, large-scale environmental water quality improvement. In a first-of-its-kind partnership with the City of Fort Lauderdale, Clean Waterways utilized machinery known as protein skimmers to improve water quality in the Himmarshee Canal. By injecting microbubbles into a chamber, Clean Waterways has exceeded testing checkpoints when analyzed for contaminant removal.

To further expand the scale of local effectiveness of mobile remediation, Clean Waterways explored environmentally beneficial adsorption media technologies for the difficult removal of medications and chemicals. Adsorption media ionically pulls dissolved contaminants onto a porous surface. Among the various types of adsorption media, carbon is the most popular. Upon exploring options available, Clean Waterways selected AquaChar due to the large chunk size and on-site maintenance process.”

AquaChar and Clean Waterways are currently working with a reef restoration institute to determine most efficient application & regeneration methods and doing an array of contaminant removal testing including glyphosate & PFAS (a.k.a. “Forever Chemicals”).


A better world grown locally.

AquaChar is a mobile & scalable waste management company that uses a self-fueling process to recycle timber waste into a premium water purifying carbon which provides local solutions to manage tributaries of contamination.

Using a combination of engineering & chemistry, the AquaChar maximizes temperature in a controlled-oxygen environment to preserve the natural porosity of wood while structuring carbon and forcing out impurities as fuel.

Integrating emerging nanotechnologies allowed AquaChar to create a customizable slow-release formula that is capable of rapid decontamination & long-term stability.

A gallon of AquaChar treats of 1,000 gallons of water & adding new to the existing (typically every 3-6+ months) maintains clarity and boosts biological balance & stability.

Onsite regeneration allows AquaChar to be used for the lifespan of the project & seeded media can create centuries of benefits when added to soil.
