Modul'O - Local treatment for organic waste

Modul'O is a containerized, standard, and modular digester that transforms organic waste into renewable energy, fertilizer and water.

The solution allows for a local treatment of organic wastes thanks to a small scale unit. The principle is based on the same anaerobic digestion that happens in the cow stomach and transforms organic matter into three ressources : (1) Biogaz composed of methane (CH4) that can be transformed into electricity, heat or even biofuel. (2) Solid fertilizer, similar to a classical compost, to restitute the organic elements into the soils. (3) Clear water for local needs : cleaning and watering. Modul'O is industrialized and prefabricated. As a result, it can be installed quickly, being fully automated and connected. Each module can also be customized to answer specific needs.

Key features

  • 1 ton of organic matter produce equals 1MWh of renewable energy.
  • Promotes a circular economy.


  • A payback period of 4-8 years depending on size and customization of the unit (average depending on local characteristics).
