WASE Biocentre - A compact sewage/faecal sludge treatment plant that generates bioenergy from wastewater for decentralised management in urban communities

Globally 80% of wastewater is discharged into our environment untreated because of a high dependence on centralised solutions that are expensive and energy-intensive. WASE's Biocentre Solution unlocks the power of waste using a patent-pending 'waste-to-energy' technology. The Biocentres provide circular onsite waste management, allowing customers to generate energy from previously non-viable waste streams whilst also recovering water and nutrients to produce fertilisers. The Solution uses WASE's groundbreaking EMR technology that accelerates waste treatment and boosts energy production compared to biological solutions such as anaerobic digestino. Each biocentre has a remote monitoring and control system providing real-time diagnostics globally to optimise energy efficiency and reduce maintenance costs. The Biocentres can treat a variety of waste streams, including faecal sludge/sewage, food and drink manufacturing waste, and agricultural waste. This Solution is helping to reduce emissions, clean up water sources and generate a healthy environment for people to live in.
