Turns green waste e.g. crop stalks, timber and garden waste into high-value products initially focused on animal feed, but also potentially packaging, construction, textiles and more.

Sustinent is changing the way we value green waste.

We have developed a scalable, clean, safe way to transform crop stalks, timber and garden waste, into livestock feed.

The Sustinent solution:

  • Is better than composting, burning or sending green waste to landfill
  • Needs little land or water
  • Doesn't compete with traditional livestock or our food system for inputs and
  • Produces year-round, no matter the weather or season.
