(SUWANEE, Ga. — June 28, 2023 — OnSyte Release via PRNewswire) — OnSyte Performance  announced it has received a growth investment from funds managed by Ember Infrastructure  to scale its proprietary, end-to-end distributed wastewater treatment solutions.

Based in Suwanee, Georgia, the company offers state-of-the-art treatment technology in a continuously monitored, wirelessly controlled system that is operated and maintained by licensed wastewater professionals. These distributed wastewater treatment units (DWTUs) can be deployed individually or as networks and are well suited for wastewater utility, municipality, commercial, industrial and residential applications.

Each DWTU has advanced nutrient pollution removal capabilities, utilizing a suspended-growth, activated-sludge process in a miniaturized sequencing batch reactor tied to a proprietary programmable logic controller, operating in a secure networked environment. Licensed wastewater operators monitor these networks and can optimize system performance and perform remote supervisory control if a unit is operating out of specification. Additionally, the company's cloud-based performance dashboard product provides customers with real-time access across their network of DWTUs, delivering important information such as wastewater flows, system capacity, and nitrogen removal.

"We are excited to be able to invest in our business to meet demand as customers begin to see the enormous benefits of OnSyte's solutions" said OnSyte COO Jim Easterling. "Ember has been a proactive, flexible partner who understands the potential of our product."

OnSyte offers flexible solutions including hardware and software, installation services and ongoing monitoring and maintenance based on customer needs. The company also provides a fully-financed, turnkey Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering. IaaS allows the replacement of aging septic tanks or the development of new construction with modern distributed wastewater treatment technology at no upfront cost to real estate developers, builders, municipalities or homeowners, with customers instead paying a predictable monthly fee for service.

"In OnSyte, we see a proven treatment solution coupled with a highly compelling commercial proposition for municipalities, utilities, developers, and individual homeowners who do not have access to traditional sewers," said Ember Principal Caleb Powers, who will join the company's board of directors. "Advances in technology are enabling new business models, and we look forward to working with the OnSyte team to continue scaling the Company's solutions."

OnSyte also has a robust and growing service business with nearly 50 employees in Georgia and Florida, supplementing the turnkey DWTU service offering as well as performing traditional septic maintenance.
