We treat water like it matters... it does

We treat water like it matters... it does

Waterhound is the next generation cloud-based tool,

which uniquely combines real time data collection, monitoring and analytics with predictive modelling to optimise wastewater treatment systems and environmental compliance.

Based on first principles of chemistry and engineering,

Waterhound is a proven tool to design or optimise and manage the entire treatment process train – input to output – and compares manufacturers’ performance standards against actual performance of any technology used in treatment processes.


are able to monitor all treatment processes, from input to output, using one tool and to conduct predictive maintenance, not reactive or scheduled maintenance when the treatment system already has a problem or optimal performance has already dropped off

Design engineers

are able to test and verify projected operational and cost efficiencies of system designs before any capital costs are incurred


is provied with a tool to:

  • Realise significant reductions in operating costs as the result of lower water, energy and chemical usage
  • Manage risks (environmental, financial, reputational) and assets
  • Streamline compliance and environmental-social-and-governance data collection and report generation

Industrial applications include




and tanneries







Food and beverage












Oil and gas

Vision and Strategic Objectives

Our vision at Waterhound is simple: eliminate pollution of freshwater resources by untreated – or inadequately treated – wastewater at source.

It is more complex, so we have focused our strategic objectives to:

Data-based decision tool

Disrupt conventional, empirical approaches to wastewater treatment practices and replace it with a cost effective, comprehensive, independent data collection, monitoring, analytic and predictive modelling tool

Treating wastewater is good business

Make robust pursuit and adherence to sustainable wastewater treatment the profitable business choice

Sustainability best practice

Provide real-time, direct data collection aligned with international best practice standards and simplify Environmental-Social-Governance and Sustainability impact and financial report generation at the click of a button

Independent, internal and external compliance monitoring

Provide corporate management and regulatory authorities with a manufacturer-independent tool to confirm compliance with company guidelines and legal requirements for the treatment and disposal of wastewater

Water Stewardship Standard

Establish water stewardship as the principal business and operational standard


Waterhound Futures was founded in February 2019 for the purpose of commercialising a proven offline simulation and predictive modelling tool as an cloud-based solution to optimise and manage wastewater treatment systems. The Waterhound solution consolidates 10-years of proven calculations based on first principles of chemistry and engineering in the design and manufacture of wastewater treatment hardware. The Model currently includes over 250 contaminants and over 250 treatment processes. Wastewater treatment equipment has been supplied to clients such as equipment has been supplied to clients such as Halliburton and ExxonMobil, Ford, Fiat, Iveco and Baker Hughes. Wastewater has been treated successfully to achieve such exacting discharge standards as the Australian regulatory standards, including compliance in sensitive environments.

Waterhound for Engineers

The selection of the optimal wastewater treatment system design can be expensive and is complicated by the uncertainty of future environmental regulations, water source degradation, changes to manufacturing processes and the large number of treatment alternatives.

Companies are faced with two choices:

Adding time and money

to the wastewater treatment process selection and engineering practice selection and engineering practice and the future cost of design changes if the process selection process was flawed


Operational cost and risk

of correcting problems encountered if wastewater treatment operation parameters are not corrected for a period of time

THE WATERHOUND SYSTEM real-time monitoring data

The Waterhound system calculates and enables the selection of alternative processes to manage existing wastewater treatment systems. This modelling informs critical corporate decision-making, policies and procedures for predictive maintenance, heat energy recovery, reduced chemical use and process optimisation.

The Waterhound System facilitates reductions in freshwater and energy consumption by:

  • Treating wastewater for reuse
  • Monitoring and predicting equipment deterioration
  • Making adjustments to operational parameters to minimise energy and chemical consumption
  • Mitigating environmental impact and regulatory risks

“Globally, it is likely that over 80% of wastewater is released to the environment without adequate treatment.”

UNESCO, 2017

“The opportunities from exploiting wastewater as a resource are enormous. Safely managed wastewater is an affordable and sustainable source of water, energy, nutrients and other recoverable materials.”

UNESCO, 2017

“By 2030, global demand for water is expected to grow by 50%. This will require new approaches to wastewater collection and management. Indeed, reused wastewater may help address challenges like food production and industrial development.”

European Water Association

“When not ignored, used water has long been seen as simply a burden for disposal. With rising water scarcity in many regions, this is changing, and we see increasing recognition of the importance of wastewater collection, treatment and reuse…Data availability remains a persisting challenge, particularly in developing countries. Recent analysis shows that out of 181 countries, only 55 had information on the generation, treatment and use of wastewater, and the remaining ones had no or only partial data. In the majority of countries where data were available, it was outdated. This information bottleneck impedes the research and development necessary to craft innovative technologies and adapt existing ones to local specificities and needs.”
