We are tackling some of the world’s toughest environmental problems by developing and deploying innovative, low-cost, waste-to-energy solutions, through robust design and manufacturing excellence. Our team specialises in the utilisation of Anaerobic Digestion (AD) on micro-scale applications, initially applying our commercially viable solutions to the dairy sector.
