Recyllose™

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
• MDF
• 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.
