Patrick Kiely

Island Water Technologies Inc.

Over the past 5 years, Patrick has led IWT to design, create and deliver world-first decentralized wastewater treatment solutions that are self-powered, 75% more energy efficient than comparable systems, autonomous, and effective in remote and hostile regions. The plants can reclaim wastewater for reuse applications – for irrigation, without use of difficult to acquire chemicals. Their plants have been deployed by the Canadian military in Afghanistan and to support humanitarian aid across the Sahara Dessert. No wonder IWT is growing sales and partnerships in Europe, China, Kenya and Latin America – another example of clean tech innovation spurring exports and jobs in Canada.
