Company Overview

We were created in 2007 by PR experts Ian Smith and Nadia Morris. Both Ian and Nadia had amassed over twenty five years’ experience in the PR industry and worked extensively representing technology firms in that time.

Imagine discovering gold in wastewater…
Applied CleanTech (ACT) creates a market of $200 Billion a year (more than Google's market), by converting sewage into an economic asset with $7 annual yield per capita (more than Facebook).
Our products yield more than 50% revenues in an almost unlimited market.
Our technology was tested and approved by the premier experts in the field - the Dutch government (see movie in the external links).

After successful establishment of our activity we offer you the opportunity to join us and become a part of the success.

Now you can invest in the only known company that developed and implemented a proven technology that mines cellulose from wastewater (WW), an endless untapped source of cellulose, transforming it into profits.

ACT’s patented technology automatically recycles cellulose from WW in commercial facilities, thus reducing sludge by up to 50%. The unique Sewage Recycling System (SRS) mines the cellulose from WW, recycling and processing it into a clean, pasteurized, environmentally-friendly product called Recyllose™ (recycled cellulose).
This Recyllose™ provides ACT with an additional high-margin and recurring revenue source as it is a valuable commodity perfect for various industries. Recyllose™ is used in plastics, insulation, pulp & paper, construction, bio-fuels production, and more, and directly meets the tightening global standards for WW treatment & sludge disposal.

In addition to the revenues from the Recyllose™, the SRS technology offers further operational & environmental benefits:
• Reduces plant OPEX & energy consumption by up to 30%
• Increases plant capacity by up to 30%
• Reduces GHG emissions and carbon footprint

ACT is the first sewage mining company in the world to convert WW into a valuable resource, while producing a dual source of income– sales of the SRS itself, and a recurring revenue stream from the process’ recycled by-product.

Join our momentum as we jumpstart the sewage mining revolution!

Business Summary

Next Year Revenue



ACT discovered an untapped and near-endless source of cellulose that is found in the unwanted sludge produced during the standard wastewater treatment process.
Recyllose™ is a unique, innovative compound that is generated from high levels of recycled cellulose fibers extracted from wastewater, via a patented sewage recycling system (SRS). By producing Recyllose™, ACT provides an additional high-margin and recurring revenue source, yielding ~ €5 per capita per year. The recycled cellulose is suitable for use as a green, vital and economical replacement in a variety of industries, including:

• Pulp and paper
• Feedstock for bio-plastics
• Construction and insulation
• Energy-efficient biofuel - one ton of Recyllose™ can generate up to 500 liters of high-quality bio-diesel / bio-ethanol
• Resource for production of nano-cellulose
… and more

Recyllose™ is packed directly on-site and is suitable for long-term storage, transportation and ready for use in industrial applications

Sewage Recycling System (SRS)

The unique patented technology (SRS) automatically produces recycled cellulose (Recyllose™) from raw wastewater (municipal, industrial & agricultural liquid waste). It is the ONLY known and proven technology that commercially mines cellulose from sewage, thus reducing sludge formation by up to 50%. This enables the plants to benefit from an organic process that cuts operating costs by up to 30%, and increases plant capacity by up to 30%. Plants using the SRS have reduced their GHG emissions, making them eligible for carbon credits.

The SRS automatically recycles the cellulose fibers inherent in raw wastewater. The SRS traps the particles, and then cleans, pasteurizes and packs them on-site, turning an unwanted liability into a revenue-producing product called Recyllose™, or recycled cellulose.

The SRS can be tailored to meet the unique requirements of each local territory, and is complementary to any wastewater treatment available today.
