What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Come Clean Water With Us!

Help Us Put Our Award Winning Technology To Work!
Help Us Put Our Award Winning Technology To Work!

A deceptively simple water cleaning technology that just might change the world.

With your help we can clean more polluted water in the next 10 years, than the entire world has in the last century. 

We've created a way to put billions of microscopic pollution eating organisms into our portable bioreactors.

We’re Ready To Put Your Contributions To Work!

Our dedicated team of scientists and experts are what make this project possible. Say hello to the team!

Tyler Stoehr - Marketing Assistant
Kyle Dammann - Communications & Marketing 

We’re Not A Magic Bullet

Yes, we can solve a lot of pollution challenges, but there are certain elements and pollutants we cannot handle, and that’s OK.  We confidently cover mine drainage, agriculture and human wastewater. This is enough to keep us busy for the next 100 years.

We're Data Driven & Results Oriented

The numbers don't lie.  We've been careful to collect the data necessary to make bold claims, but don't take our word for it... 

We’re Probably Going to Mars

Through our BioSettlers project, NASA and other space agencies are eager to test our systems.  Aside from helping us get to Mars, this development will translate into improved technology for planet Earth and the people who need clean water the most.

We Zig, While They Zag

Bigger pumps, complex filters, more electricity and more expensive systems, we threw it all out the window and started with a clean slate. 

Scalable, modular and flexible.  We're ready to clean some serious pollution.

We Let Nature Do the Work

Nature has been cleaning water since...forever!  We’ve consulted the worlds greatest minds in the field of bioremediation to understand this process, and have created a new way forward.

Living Organism That Love Eating Pollution.

We Feed The “Bugs” and They Do The Heavy Lifting

This concept can fill many textbooks, but we essentially create the ideal environment for a host of microorganisms that happily “eat” and/or convert various types of water pollutants. They are changed into forms that are settled, or off-gassed. The minerals and elements captured can even be recycled as valuable resources like manganese oxide, rare earths and nutrients.

We Can Scale Quickly

While the ecological technology we use, called natural attenuation, is complex and subtle, the systems themselves are essentially boxes made of a durable recycled plastics. We use large panels, cut them into specific shapes, then thermally weld them together in assembly line fashion. 

With Your Help We Can Grow Quickly To Meet Market Demands

We Have Patents

EcoIslands LLC was awarded its first patent in 2013 and has 4 others pending, with more to write.  Because of this and our “brain trust” of scientists and business experts, help to keep us ahead of the competition. Our seven year, three phase business plan for global domination is available upon request, just contact us.

We Love Making A Difference

We are a company on a mission with a passion for cleaning water. We believe in a future with safer lakes, ponds, streams and most importantly clean drinking water for everyone.

Contribute Today!

One contribution today will create clean water for 50+ years.  After contributing, please remember to share on Facebook, Instagram, or your favorite social media app. And if you have any questions, please ask!

Scientific Data & Presentations:

Risks and challenges

For the last eight years, we've conceived, designed, built and tested our systems in the toughest most polluted waters anywhere. Specifically cleaning dissolved metals leaching out of shuttered and active coal mining sites in the Appalachian Mountains.

Our system have gone through many revisions and redesigns to get them to where they are today.

To some degree we will always improve our technology, but the current production model will confidently clean water for a good 50 years + at a cost per gallon that is previously unheard of.

    The Zen Master Gardener

    The Mk401 with the Photic Reactor Top featured in our latest update.

    The combination of a mini greenhouse on top of the advanced Mk401 home bioreactor allows for a tightly enclosed seal that exchanges atmosphere, water, and nutrients between the two. This balanced exchange mimics that of our global ecosystem between plants and animals, each providing products for the other. I call this Zen Master Gardening and is a primary focus of our in-house Mars habitation research.

    Unlike other aquaponic systems, the wetland in the MRU breaks down waste plant matter directly to biomass, water, (a little) heat, and CO2. This CO2 helps the plants above grow faster and deal with heat stress better. What you don't eat, or other plant or vegetable scraps from home, goes into this aerobic digester to feed fish, crayfish..., and microbes.

    By accepting the Zen Master Gardener pledge, you'll be directly receiving our most advanced technology along with a pledge to get you the electronics kit that will automate the system by the end of the year.

    This system also includes a Level 1 Bio Reactor/Settler certification, and thorough training conducted by the CEO and inventor Colin Lennox.

    *Only recommended for dedicated researchers and advanced makers and DIYers.
