We brew acetic acid and nutrients from biosolids.
reNEW Technologies - a circular enterprise - has developed a patented biothermal 2-step process to ferment and extract volatile fatty acids (VFA) and nutrients (NPK) from biosolids.
The extracted VFA together with the recycled water forms the base for an acetic acid (vinegar) cleaning agent, while the NPK forms a humic acid rich liquid fertilizer. Besides recovering useable products, the process also reduces the volume of the processed biosolids by almost 50%.
Incubated within UTB Envirotec, an engineering firm with over 30 years’ global experience in wastewater and biosolids treatment, reNEW Technologies was spun-off in 2015 to commercialize this unique technology. It is a privately held company and is co-located in UK and Hungary.
One of the products that can be made from our manufacturing process is liquid bio-fertilizers, rich in micro-, macro nutrients and humic acids. The organic matter improves soil properties for optimum plant growth, including tilth, friability, fertility and water holding capacity. They also decrease the need for pesticide use.
It’s been successfully tested by golf courses, nurseries and hobby gardens. Available soon!
Our organic acids and recycled water are and excellent base material for sustainable & effective household cleaners that are safe for you, your home and the planet. Marketed under the CYCLE brand, these cleaners target the consumer and professional markets. The CYCLE brand is currently in a go-to-market phase. Please visit CYCLE to learn more:
Our research and development team is constantly working on taking the best out of organic waste. Building on the fermentation (Aerotherm) and distillation (Carbonator) platform developed to extract Volatile Fatty Acids, our next focus for this versatile raw material is Bioplastics. Stay tuned for further updates.
