Sewage Waste to Become Plastic

The innovative technology developed by Applied Cleantech will enable turning the solids in municipal sewage systems into raw
materials for the plastic industry around the world.

This revolutionary way of thought, along with scientific research, led over the past few years to this technology's development which enables sewage sludge to be used as a base for raw materials that are later sold back to the industry. The technology is applied by way of a compact, automatic and efficient facility that recycles solids from raw sewage and turns them into high-quality consumer products through a continuous process (SRS- Sewage Recycling System). At the end of the process, sewage solids are turned into high quality, clean and environmentally friendly raw materials, thus naming the purification facility to a manufacturer with extra "green" points.

Aside from the raw materials created at the end of the process, the new plants assist in reducing regional sewage purification plant loads by about 35%. As a result, purification plants enjoy reduced energy consumption and reduced operational and maintenance costs in their water cleaning process in favor of reuse. In addition, sewage recycling provides three major benefits.

First, reducing regular operational costs by approximately 30%, as well as gaining raised capacity. Second, manufacturing and selling high quality consumer goods by utilizing sewage materials, and third - reducing greenhouse gases, thus preventing environmental hazards. Applying this system will allow turning purification facilities into a true asset - a source of income and environmental contribution.

The company's development was intended to provide a solution for issues in sewage care. Today, a certain percentage of the massive amount of waste produced by human beings (solid municipal waste) is cleared through garbage systems to landfills, and some is cleared through the sewage system through sewage purification facilities. The raw sewage that reaches the sewage purification facilities contains suspended solids, soluble solids, minerals, oils, and toxic compounds. Speaking in environmental terms, sludge is currently considered one of the major issues that need to be solved.

Dr. Refael Aharon, CEO and founder of Applied Cleantech: "The revolution is in regarding these solids not as waste that must be hidden, consumed by bacteria, or buried, but as a resource and base for raw materials that is sold back to the industry.

For the first time ever, this technology is able to recycle solids in wastewater and turn them into raw materials that can be used to manufacture paper and plastic. It is currently being utilized in a few cities around the world, and in advanced negotiation phases with municipalities and investors in Europe and the United States.
