WHAT DO WE DO?
Advetec is an environmental biotechnology company that specialises in the reduction of waste created in the food, retail, entertainment and leisure industries. Our company has developed a very effective way of digesting matter using a unique blend of bacteria inside our large scale biodigester machines.
HOW DO WE DO IT?
Unlike many other systems the Advetec technology uses bacteria that need oxygen to respire (an aerobic system) rather than ones that require no oxygen (anaerobic). Consequently there are no harmful gases such as Hydrogen sulphide or methane created in the process, just carbon dioxide and water.
Our specially developed reactors ensure the necessary balance of heat, air, movement and nutrients to speed up (or catalyse) the reaction, so that material is processed from end to end within 3 days (72 hours).
With remote monitoring and control we can ensure that the mass, volume and moisture levels of the digestate are carefully controlled according to the specific needs of our customers and the varying types of waste processed.
WHY IS IT SO EFFICIENT?
The process is aerobic rather than anaerobic so only water vapour, heat and small quantities of CO2 are produced as biproducts of respiration. Once initiated, most of the heat required by the bacteria is generated through digestion process. The bespoke bio-stimulants that we have created catalyse (speed up) the reaction takes place which leads to the rapid digestion of the organic material.
Whilst the science and technology behind Advetec are complex the outcomes are simple. Advetec customers experience substantial waste reduction levels and significant cost savings. In addition by concentrating on how waste is managed our customers are demonstrating their customers, shareholders and staff their commitment to lessening their impact on the globe whilst showing their corporate social responsibility.
Our customers typically see a 50-90% reduction in the volumes or waste input into the system and between 50-70% reduction in the mass of waste created. Depending on the nature of the input waste, Advetec will work with customers to identify further opportunities to use the bi-product of our reactors to their advantage – be that as potential compost, fuel or product – further lessening the impact whilst creating more cost benefits.

BEHIND THE TECHNOLOGY
Our systems are increasingly being used across the globe. With that in mind we have used technology to ensure we can operate, control and monitor equipment anywhere in the world. All our machines monitor the production process, weights, heat, energy use and volumes in real time, sending data back to our head office where we can control, change and adapt the systems for maximum throughput. We are able to provide all our customers with detail reports demonstrating any number of key performance measures at any time as well as being able to deliver remote services, reset and changes, minimising the need for direct site intervention where possible.
