BIOTEC was established in Belgium in 1984 with the aim of developing appropriate conceptual, technological and methodological tools for tropical regions. The key objectives are to treat wastewater (agricultural, agro-industrial and urban) and manage solid organic waste. By doing so we add value to the by-products and use them as industrial, energy and agricultural inputs in sectors such as oil palm, sugar cane, grasses and energy crops, citrus, among others.
Our Vision (future): Sustainable development of Humanity, fed through organic agriculture and powered with renewable energy
- Replace the usage of fossil fuels by the valorisation of agro-industrial organic by-products
- Reduce the use of chemical fertilisers in agriculture, optimising the cycle of nutrients (return of the organic matter to the soil)
- Generate gas and electricity from energy crops (grasses & forage)
- Find creative solutions to prevent any discharge of effluents or waste to water bodies
Our expertise begins at inlet pipe effluent until clean recovered energy uses.
