The Waste Transformers


The Waste Transformers process organic waste - which in the urban context is mainly food waste - through decentralized anaerobic digestion and turn it into value. Through the process is it possible to recover nutrients in the form of solid and liquid fertilizers, green gas and CO2. Organic fertilizer can be used back in agriculture for food production closing the nutrient biocycle. Green gas is a valid alternative to natural gas and can be either used as fuel for vehicles or enter the national gas grid. CO2 instead can be used as a growth enhancer in greenhouses. We use the ancient technique of digesting and put it in an innovative and modern jacket to enable small-scale waste producers, such as hotels, harbours, communities and food producers to create value out of their own waste and share this story with their customers. A Waste Transformer reduces the costs of waste management, enables companies to share their sustainable way of dealing with waste and it recovers valuable nutrients from the waste to regrow beautiful crops and vegs. The Waste Transformers has its main office in the Netherlands, and has projects on a global scale. Think about harbours, cruise ships, hotels, football stadiums, and food producers and plantations. If you are a producer of foodwaste, ranging from 350kg to 3000 kg a day, drop us a message, and maybe you become a Waste Transformer as well.
