Galen Fulford is Managing Partner of Biomatrix Water Technology. Galen has managed the development of several organizations, focused on environmental education and water and soil restoration and resource management. The grasshopper camp in the USA was founded with the purpose of connecting youngsters with nature through the medium of artistic creativity. The highly successful program ran a solid waiting list through its five years of operation, before Galen moved to the UK. Galen also managed the delivery of non-for-profit programming in Bolivia focused on providing skills, tools and training in rural areas. With Co-Founder Lisa Shaw, Galen managed the program development, fundraising, and delivery providing a comprehensive program covering rainwater harvesting, soil building, rural sanitation, wells, and reforestation and total watershed management.
Galen has been the driving manager of Biomatrix Water since its inception.
Our mission is to restore water ecosystems to a state of health and vitality, through the widespread implementation of innovative ecological systems and technologies.
The founding partners of the Biomatrix Water team have over two decades of experience designing and delivering ecological engineering projects for the treatment and recycling of municipal and industrial wastewater and bioremediation. Our design approach applies current best practice in modern wastewater treatment and process control with the latest developments in ecological engineering. The resulting research shows that the wise use of modern materials, biomimicry, and design innovation provide an effective solution to the problems of urban water pollution and aquatic habitat degradation. The Biomatrix Water head office and research facility is located in Moray, Scotland.
Approximately 80% of the wastewater in developing countries currently goes untreated directly into the canals, rivers and estuaries, often directly within the urban living environment. To address this issue, which affects over a billion people, we have established a strong focus on waterway restoration. This process leverages the value and economic shift from contaminated waterway to high value waterfront property, urban parkway and biodiverse ecological corridor.
To provide solutions to the current and growing water situation we have focused efforts since our establishment on expanding a set of technologies focused on providing economical component based natural water management. In the course of technology development we have launched applications for several patents, and we have recently filed an extensive international patent application through the PCT process for our integrated water treatment technology.
Our objective is environmental and social health and vitality and we work through the medium of water, guided by the framework of the UN millennium development goals to improve water access, water security, sanitation, biodiversity and environmental sustainability.
