WHAT WE BELIEVE
Waste is an opportunity.
The best natural resource is the one that has already been extracted. Our work begins where others’ consumption ends, where energy would be otherwise lost to landfills or abandoned.
Innovation is imperative.
We can and will cultivate healthier, more sustainable cities by continuously and creatively disrupting old processes.

Action is the most effective stimulus for progress. We promote a hands-on approach to research, development and education.
Knowledge is power.
