Lynn Mueller

President & CEO, International Wastewater Systems

Not everyone wants to think about hot sewage, but Mr. Mueller and his team think about little else. Every day, the average North American family flushes one full tank of hot water down the drain – water that entered the building at 7-9°C and leaves at 20-25°C. Lynn led his team at IWS to develop and deploy their patented Sewage Heat And ReCovery system “SHARC” – a completely turnkey solution for industrial, commercial and multi-unit residential buildings that captures just the water, runs it through heat exchangers, producing a heating and cooling solution complete with touch screen controls, email alerts and heat pumps. The system has demonstrated technological efficiencies of up to 600% and energy savings of 30-85% – nothing smelly about that!
