About SanEcoTec

SanEcoTec History

A social entrepreneurship founded in 2008 by Els Vanbeckevoort and Jim Shubat to develop healthy water solutions that can meet emerging water treatment challenges. The Company is recognized as a leader in advanced water treatment and sustainable development.

From first being introduced to SanEcoTec, I had a sense from our growers this was something to take seriously. SanEcoTec are water treatment experts and this knowledge and experience is something our industry needs. Anyone can offer the newest mousetrap, but a holistic systems approach means: checkpoints throughout the process, engineering expertise, implementation follow thru, after-sales support and verification; these are the factors that give me confidence that we made the right choice.

Thank you to SanEcoTec for the amazing change in the drinking water in our Town. It’s been only a week and the comments from residents are absolutely mind blowing, like, “have you noticed how clear the water is, did you notice there’s no more stains in the toilet and the fact that I can see the bottom of my soaker tub?” What a Christmas gift, as one woman remarked. And we’ve only just begun.

AVIVE Water Treatment Programs

The award-winning AVIVE programs combine leading water science with self-monitoring analysis and reporting technology (SMART) to improve the cost, control, compliance and performance of water used in a variety of business applications.

The AVIVE process has reported (and independently verified) improvements among key performance indicators, while having a positive effect on people, infrastructure and the environment.

In establishing these proof-points SanEcoTec has become a world authority on the science and application of alternative disinfectants such as silver stabilized hydrogen peroxide. With more than ten years of in-depth lab research and field study – as well as working under the scrutiny of many different Regulatory authorities and jurisdictions – the Company has published foundational, peer- reviewed science that is the singular expertise on how to efficiently, effectively and safely use these technologies in a water treatment process.

AVIVE is one of the most significant innovations in municipal drinking water since the introduction of chlorine as a primary disinfectant more than a century ago… The AVIVE technology represents a new viable disinfection alternative for communities that are grappling with the potentially adverse health implications associated with trihalomethanes and other chlorine-related by-products.

– Former Director of Engineering Services of Canadian provincial water utility

I have specialized in organic growing techniques for over 20 years with a variety of commercial crops throughout Indonesia, Europe and North America. I am very pleased with the AVIVE process to enhance propagation, manage against infestation and improve shelf life. I think this is a genuine breakthrough in water management and we have already enjoyed competitive advantage as a result of using It.
