Our Approach


Act Today.
Save Tomorrow.

Our idealism is tempered with realism, hence the ‘shades of green’.

We know that we have some way to go before realising our environmental ambitions, but by making small yet significant changes, we’re already reaping some rewards.

Because at SEM, we are working to sustain people, planet and business in equal measure.


Future-proofing your business
for a greener tomorrow

We are working towards the evolution of a zero-waste, circular economy in the future, securing our planet’s health and wealth for generations to come.

We aim to positively impact on your business by:

  • Reducing waste
  • Safely discharging water to the watercourse
  • Increasing efficiencies
  • Saving on storage and logistics costs
  • Reducing your carbon footprint

Helping you to protect our planet’s ecosystem from the potentially negative impact of our waste co-products and reducing emissions from excessive transport on our roads – it’s part and parcel of our role as your environmental partner.

There is a better solution. This is it.


Unlocking the potential of

Fuelled by a belief that there is a better way to repurpose ‘waste’ and recover resources and nutrients where possible, we have applied our experience and engineering know-how to develop a range of novel, patented technologies that empower businesses to reduce waste, manage co-products and, where possible, generate by-products to add value to their waste streams.

What does it mean for your business?

Managing ‘waste’ and water means different things to different industries. Because we work across multiple sectors, we understand the unique challenges of different businesses and how to tackle them.

What’s more, we look at the bigger picture. Our holistic approach encapsulates the entire process on-site – from remediating water and removing solids, to manufacturing new, valuable and saleable by-products.

“We don’t claim to have all the answers, and of course sometimes we need to compromise. But we do have the vision, the drive and the expertise to strive towards finding them.”
