Founded in 2009, AgraCycle's mission has been to develop a practical, sustainable methodology for recycling food and other organic wastes that did not involve adding carbon emissions and methane into our atmosphere.
Initially, our research was focused on the design and development of a vertically constructed, thermophylic composting unit, capable of processing 10 tons of food waste per day.
But as we explored various methodologies we found what that the solution lay not in aerobic bacteria, nor even thermophylic bacteria, but in anaerobic bacteria. More commonly referred to as probiotics.
We have developed a sustainable method of recycling organic waste that enables nearly all the nutrients
to be returned to the soil instead of into the atmosphere.
In comparison, open air composting looses about three quarters it's total volume as carbon is released into the air . We think that is just wasteful.
Mission Statement :
Recycling food and other organic waste provides a viable alternative to the environmental damage from landfilling. Food Waste recycling, in conjunction with sustainable farming practices, reduce the need for petrol-chemical fertilizers. These have been proven to be toxic to humans, wildlife and the environment.
