TurboTec tackles challenges in the fields of drinking water supply, clean energy, and the reduction and reuse of organic waste. TurboTec technology treats organic material in waste water at high temperature and pressure to create biomass for fermentation. By means of thermal hydrolysis, water and organic material - sewage sludge - are separated. Sewage sludge, which consists of micro-organisms and nutrients, can be converted into biomass for e.g. green energy and fertilizers after a series of additional steps. This process was proven to be more effective and more efficient than conventional methods.
