Epcot Crenshaw Corporation (ECC) develops innovative products and systems to deliver solutions for existing and looming environmental problems. Through research partnerships with academic, private, and public organizations, we bring both a local and global perspective to create comprehensive solutions for industrial sustainability.
Our pipeline includes technologies that are in various stages of commercialization, while others are still in the infancy stages of research and development. The advantage of our strategy is the broad range of competences in renewable energy and fuel production, waste management, and resource reclamation that we have combined to develop turnkey solutions for the food, water, oil, and gas industry sectors. We believe that each of our ventures has the opportunity to be disruptive in its relevant sector.
Our mission to inspire innovation is guided by the understanding that innovation in sustainable development must take precedence in order to mitigate further damage to Earth's natural ecosystems. Central to ECC's approach is a dedication to driving change in close alliance with strategic partners.
The toll that globalization has taken on our world is diminishing the ability of populations to meet basic human needs. With growing concerns about increasingly scarce natural resources and climate change, the environmental outlook is dim. We believe that the consequences of current neglience will rest upon the shoulders of future generations, which is why the desire to achieve our mission is driven by the vision of a restored balance between human needs, and the carrying capacity of Earth's natural systems.
We are manufacturing microbial populations to enhance biological processes for the treatment of industrial waste streams. Engineering microbes to optimize specific unit processes will lead to increased energy and system efficiencies.
By coupling distributed generation with resource recovery, ECC has developed a distributed energy resource (DER) system platform that is redefining the model for waste-to-energy systems. Our site-specific solutions are designed to maximize profitability while eliminating environmental impacts.
ECC is developing ways to increase the reliability of local power generation, storage and distribution systems. Our microgrid technologies can regulate the supply of electricity to co-localized customers to eliminate their reliance on the grid.
The ability to produce synthetic liquid fuels and oils from biomass, coal or natural gas will have a growing impact on our economy as oil reserves become scarce. ECC is leading the pursuit for alternatives with scalable Fischer-Tropsch technologies that can be deployed for a variety of applications.
Comprehensive nutrient management plans minimize environmental impacts by decreasing runoff, which damages local and downstream water quality, but often to an extent unknown. ECC is developing science-based systems that will enable regulators to verify that pollution reduction targets are met.
From rural cooperatives formed to recycle resources within farming communities, to developing self-sustainable aquaponics facilities for deployment in urban areas, ECC is working to support food producers in meeting the needs of our growing population.

services as we work in unison with environmental authorities to ensure that our customers in the agricultural, industrial, and municipal sectors meet or exceed stormwater and wastewater management requirements.
Green Harvest One is utilizing our breakthrough technologies to develop responses to environmental challenges, and deploy them as profitable business enterprises. Through strategic partnerships, GH1 is working to sustain industries troubled by the abundance of organic waste.
The Green Harvest Augsburger pilot plant was deployed to demonstrate our DER system technologies at industrial scale. Located in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, the completed facility will be the first distributed energy system of its type in the United States.
