374Water was founded in 2018 by Kobe Nagar and Prof. Marc Deshusses as a spin-off from Duke University.


The two began working on the company’s breakthrough and innovative SCWO technology at Duke university, with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to tackle the major challenge of wet waste management in developing countries.

Following the launch of the company in 2018, 374Water evolved rapidly and listed on NASDAQ under the ticker ‘SCWO’ in 2022.

That same year, the company unveiled its Global Access program, underscoring its ongoing commitment to assisting developing countries.

374Water’s ambition extends beyond immediate environmental concerns, aiming to chart a new course towards clean water access and a sustainable future, thus leaving a lasting positive imprint on both the environment and communities worldwide.
