PROBLEM

771M People Lack Access to Clean Water5

Water desalination via “reverse osmosis” is one way to hydrate millions around the world. Water desalination via “reverse osmosis” is one method to hydrate millions worldwide. Yet, the carbon footprint associated with this process outweighs its benefits. The world needs a cleaner, zero carbon way to purify water, and we’re on a mission to supply it.

SOLUTION

The Future Is Zero-Carbon Water Purification

Our patented technology can purify water completely off the grid. Using renewable energy from the sun, geothermal, and other sources, our carbon-zero approach not only works for many types of contaminated waters and industries, it also recovers valuable minerals like lithium and nickel. These proven advantages in output and impact could help solve water scarcity once and for all.

TECHNOLOGY

The Power of Forward Osmosis (FO)

Demonstrating a customizable polymer changing phase with applied heat

Purification via reverse osmosis can’t happen without a lot of energy. But our patented FO system uses a specially designed draw solution to pull water through a membrane, purifying it before ultimately separating the water from the draw solution – like oil from water – when heat is applied. This means we purify water using nothing other than renewable or wasted energy. With 65 issued patents and 11 more pending, we’re the only company delivering the full forward osmosis package.

BUSINESS MODEL

Cornering the Forward Osmosis Market

We’re the only company offering complete forward osmosis solutions. So, when we sell a forward osmosis plant to a customer, we’re also paid as a consultant on its development and have maintenance and operation contracts for its continued operation. We also earn ongoing revenues and profits from selling FO plant consumables, including the draw solution and FO membranes. Once the tech is more solidified, we’ll license it to bigger companies globally. In those instances, we’ll be paid as both a project developer and revenue-share partner in water sales.

TRACTION

$19M in Orders Projected

We have over $10M in orders booked year to date, projecting total orders of $19M for 2024, with $8.7M in revenue. We’ve already received 14 government grants, and our $4M Hawaiian desalination plant is officially the largest forward osmosis plant ever built and successfully operated, with results validated by the U.S. Department of Energy. Internationally, we lead the way with the first commercial solar-powered brine concentration plant for treating produced oil and gas wastewaters (in Oman) as well as the first water desalination projects in Kuwait to use renewable energy.

SOCIAL PROOF

$13M in Government Grants to Date

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) helped fund our $4M Hawaii facility — one of 10 DOE grants awarded to Trevi  – and the DOE has extensive plans for our technologies.

We also won both Phase 1 and 2 of the DOE SunShot Renewable Energy Competition, with Phase 3 currently pending.

MARKET POTENTIAL

Three Enormous Industries

The market for seawater and brackish water desalination will reach $25.7B by 2028.

The wastewater treatment industry is much larger, growing to $193B by 2031. Considering our tech desalinates different types of water more efficiently using less energy, we are positioned to dominate these markets. Meanwhile, our unique ability to recover precious minerals during the desalination process also opens the door to an industry that will reach $434B by 2028.

EXPANSION

$258M in Revenue by 2028

Plenty of companies overpay for subpar desalination tech. But we’re not just selling technology, we're forming strategic partnerships to put our technology in the right hands. Growing our footprint in water-stressed areas is key. We’re currently converting oil and gas wastewater in Oman into water for agriculture using solar energy – a testament to our tech’s transformational potential. With the widespread application and need for our technology, we forecast 30X revenue growth by 2028.

FAQ's

Why invest in startups?

Regulation CF allows investors to invest in startups and early-growth companies. This is different from helping a company raise money on Kickstarter; with Regulation CF Offerings, you aren’t buying products or merchandise - you are buying a piece of a company and helping it grow.

How much can I invest?

Accredited investors can invest as much as they want. But if you are NOT an accredited investor, your investment limit depends on either your annual income or net worth, whichever is greater. If the number is less than $124,000, you can only invest 5% of it. If both are greater than $124,000 then your investment limit is 10%.

How do I calculate my net worth?

To calculate your net worth, just add up all of your assets and subtract all of your liabilities (excluding the value of the person’s primary residence). The resulting sum is your net worth.

What are the tax implications of an equity crowdfunding investment?

We cannot give tax advice, and we encourage you to talk with your accountant or tax advisor before making an investment.

Who can invest in a Regulation CF Offering?

Individuals over 18 years of age can invest.

What do I need to know about early-stage investing? Are these investments risky?

There will always be some risk involved when investing in a startup or small business. And the earlier you get in the more risk that is usually present. If a young company goes out of business, your ownership interest could lose all value. You may have limited voting power to direct the company due to dilution over time. You may also have to wait about five to seven years (if ever) for an exit via acquisition, IPO, etc. Because early-stage companies are still in the process of perfecting their products, services, and business model, nothing is guaranteed. That’s why startups should only be part of a more balanced, overall investment portfolio.

When will I get my investment back?

The Common Stock (the "Shares") of Trevi Systems. (the "Company") are not publicly-traded. As a result, the shares cannot be easily traded or sold. As an investor in a private company, you typically look to receive a return on your investment under the following scenarios: The Company gets acquired by another company. The Company goes public (makes an initial public offering). In those instances, you receive your pro-rata share of the distributions that occur, in the case of acquisition, or you can sell your shares on an exchange. These are both considered long-term exits, taking approximately 5-10 years (and often longer) to see the possibility for an exit. It can sometimes take years to build companies. Sometimes there will not be any return, as a result of business failure.

Can I sell my shares?

Shares sold via Regulation Crowdfunding offerings have a one-year lockup period before those shares can be sold under certain conditions.

Exceptions to limitations on selling shares during the one-year lockup period:
In the event of death, divorce, or similar circumstance, shares can be transferred to:
• The company that issued the securities
• An accredited investor
• A family member (child, stepchild, grandchild, parent, stepparent, grandparent, spouse or equivalent, sibling, mother-in-law, father-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, or sister-in-law, including adoptive relationships)

What happens if a company does not reach their funding target?

If a company does not reach their minimum funding target, all funds will be returned to the investors after the close of the offering.

How can I learn more about a company's offering?

All available disclosure information can be found on the offering pages for our Regulation Crowdfunding offering.

What if I change my mind about investing?

You can cancel your investment at any time, for any reason, until 48 hours prior to a closing occurring. If you’ve already funded your investment and your funds are in escrow, your funds will be promptly refunded to you upon cancellation. To submit a request to cancel your investment please email: info@dealmakersecurities

How do I keep up with how the company is doing?

At a minimum, the company will be filing with the SEC and posting on its website an annual report, along with certified financial statements. Those should be available 120 days after the fiscal year end. If the company meets a reporting exception, or eventually has to file more reported information to the SEC, the reporting described above may end. If these reports end, you may not continually have current financial information about the company.

What relationship does the company have with DealMaker Securities?

Once an offering ends, the company may continue its relationship with DealMaker Securities for additional offerings in the future. DealMaker Securities’ affiliates may also provide ongoing services to the company. There is no guarantee any services will continue after the offering ends.
