Pancopia is dedicated to providing sustainable solutions that help people and the environment using environmental and energy engineering. Focusing on research, development, and commercialization as well as consulting services, we are constantly striving to find new and better ways to provide for society’s needs.

What We Do

Environmental Engineering

Pancopia provides sustainable solutions to environmental issues through innovative application of discoveries in all fields of science– particularly in biology, chemistry, and physics. Although we primarily focus on water and wastewater issues, our work extends to all areas of environmental engineering that deal with the hydrologic cycle, including associated air and land issues. Our goal is to provide safe, high quality water resources for people, while also preserving the environment.

Energy Engineering

Though the term ‘energy engineering’ is relatively new, the concept is as old as the discovery of fire–and the subsequent scrambling to figure out how to make it last as long as possible using the least amount of fuel.  Pancopia seeks to productively utilize energy to meet the needs of the world, while minimizing negative impacts of energy use.

Our Projects


    Three phase contract with NASA to create a biological wastewater treatment system for the International Space Station


    Developing an innovative ammonia emissions capping system for swine lagoons to mitigate harmful health effects on surrounding communities.

  • Norfolk Lake Aeration

    A 20-year project with the City of Norfolk water supply that provides for high quality drinking water, and cleaner lakes

  • Residuals Removal

    An annual project overseeing the removal of drinking water residuals for the City of Portsmouth and its beneficial reuse in nearby farming communities.
