The Waste Transformers - Turning non-consumable organic waste into clean energy & fertilizer on site

Stop wasting waste. The Waste Transformers is a modular anaerobic digester placed on-site where organic waste is produced, (eg. hotels, malls, food production) turning non-consumable organic (food) waste directly into clean energy, organic fertilizer and reduces the need to transport organic waste to landfill.

Synthetic fertilizers do not only cause harm during its production but also during the application to the agricultural lands. Let's re-use non-consumable food waste as a resource through the circular economy. This containerized Waste Transformer solution processes between 500kg to 3600kg of organic waste per day and convert it into biogas to electricity, residual heat, recovered water & organic fertilizer. It thus reduces energy bills and waste handling fees. It works as a Plug & play system featuring 24/7 online monitoring & low maintenance costs.
