We collect and treat over 50,000T of residual organics per year, and successfully sell its agricultural end products to over 5000 farmers, who are seeing improved yields and increased incomes. These inputs include insect protein, organic fertilizer, and biomass ecofuels. We also offset over 50,000T of carbon emission per year. We have built a team of over 400 people from diverse backgrounds who solve diverse problems, but all who embody the drive, creativity, teamwork, and passion that make us achieve our goals. We have been recognized by Fast Company as one of the 10 Most Innovative Companies in the World Doing Social Good, an Earthshot Prize finalist, and the Food Planet Prize Winner. We are a proud partner of The Sanergy Collaborative. Check out our work here
