If food waste was a country, it would be the third largest greenhouse gas emitter in the world!
We have been selected because of our ability to tackle this issue head on. The Waste Transformers are on a mission to revolutionise how we deal with waste in a way that is green, clean, entrepreneurial and smart.
We allow everyone to create their own energy by transforming organic waste on-site, in installations housed in shipping containers, into green energy. No transportation. No CO2. We also recover the water and nutrients in the waste, and to give all of these back to the same site.
It’s a gamechanger that allows markets, hospitals, airports and local communities, to power their future with good energy whilst realising small-scale circular economies around something that would otherwise be wasted. Our game-changer is not just about the technology. We have an unique approach to realising our waste revolution through our “Business in a Box” that allows young entrepreneurs all over the world, to run one of our installations as a business providing them with the financial and technical support needed to be successful whilst cleaning their neighbourhoods.
