SEM H2OPE

The challenge of responsibly – and economically – reducing and treating food waste, slurry, sewage sludge and manure is an ever-growing concern for industries.

Increasingly ‘waste’ is being seen as a valuable resource, one that can – and should – be processed and re-used or recycled.

Our patent-pending H2OPE system is at the front line of this movement.  Revolutionising how businesses recycle their waste, while simultaneously cutting their carbon footprint, H2OPE transforms what was once a burdensome co-product into a valued commodity.

How does it work?

H2OPE is a radically new system. Its final destination is value creation, with waste treatment being a serendipitous part of the journey.

By removing volatile contaminants and de-watering, the system can be tailored to optimise valuable ingrained nutrients, leaving you with a premium grade pelletised fertiliser, or a nutritionally balanced growth media.

The water fraction is also treated, allowing for safe environmental discharge and / or re-usable clean water.

Benefits

Environmental:

  • Reduction in application of nutrient rich liquids to agricultural land
  • Reduction in diffuse pollution of waterways due to agricultural run off
  • Reduced carbon impact due to reduction in transport off-site
  • Significant reduction in carbon impact needed for manufacture of fertiliser

Societal:

  • Reduction in production of greenhouse gases
  • Benefits to the local supply chain as treatment of effluents can be achieved on-site
  • Benefits to the local supply chain as one of the by-products emitted is steam which can be used for energy generation and distilled water which can be used on-site
  • Reduction in odour emissions
  • Provision of local semi-skilled employment opportunities

Economic:

  • Producers of industrial and agricultural effluents are provided with a saleable product as a co-product of effluent treatment
  • High quality, locally produced, organic fertiliser can be purchased rather than the synthetic alternative
  • Reduced risk of incurring financial penalties for causing diffuse pollution within river catchments
