FLEXIBUSTER™ is an award-winning patented waste-to-energy appliance to create renewable energy, water and fertiliser from organic waste. They can be installed in buildings used to treat food waste & sewage, & identify opiods and viruses in the waste.

Our award-winning and patented FLEXIBUSTER™ allows businesses and communities to process their own organic waste on-site and convert it into green electricity, heat, water and fertiliser; a unique format helping sites to adhere to renewable energy objectives while reducing the need for diesel-consuming waste transportation.

Our award-winning and patented FLEXIBUSTER™ allows businesses and communities to process their own organic waste on-site and convert it into green electricity, heat, water and fertiliser; a unique format helping sites to adhere to renewable energy objectives while reducing the need for diesel-consuming waste transportation. In addition, localised detection can be implemented to help for Covid-19 and other viruses, as well as opioids, present in the effluent, bringing a more targeted view to the presence of infection and the effect of treatments. For pandemics, such as Covid-19, we would integrate sensors to our front end, which is already equipped for remote monitoring and data collection. These units would give a view from the waste water at building or neighborhood level, of the presence of the virus. These units are quick to deploy and can be relocated to focus areas as needed. Our FLEXIBUSTER unit can be used with and without energy generation depending on the size of the site and the needs. The units can provide pasteurise the effluent. The systems are factory-assembled and housed in shipping containers, enabling quick and low-cost delivery and installation anywhere in the world. The fully automated control system and remote monitoring capability allow simple and safe operation. With the FLEXIBUSTER™, waste become a valuable fuel, and carbon emissions from landfill sites and waste transportation to centralised processors become a thing of the past.

Problem

Energy and waste are two of the biggest challenges facing urban areas around the world today. And let’s not forget how precious water is. Currently everything is handled in a large offsite facility. Waste is collected and transported to remote places or landfill sites for processing. Electricity is generated in large central facilities and transmitted across overloaded grid systems. And worldwide water is in short supply. SEaB Energy can solve all of these problems.

Solution

SEaB Energy developed, patented and deployed award-winning, waste to power in a box, the FLEXIBUSTER™, ground-breaking technology to create renewable energy, water and fertiliser from organic waste, on-site. We have now looked at how we can integrate testing for opioids and viruses such as Covid-19 into buildings, allowing for localised detection and monitoring. Waste water is pretested before leaving the site even if it continues for final processing to a waste water site

Target Beneficiaries

SEaB Energy’s customer base includes business parks, university campuses, hospitals, non-profits, Fortune 50 businesses, multinational property developers and hypermarkets. Since commercialising the product in 2015, the FLEXIBUSTER™ has been successfully sold and installed at a number or sites around the world including the UK, Portugal, France and the US and has been included in a number of smart village initiatives as resource recovery solution for developing communities.

Mission and Vision

SEaB Energy’s FLEXIBUSTER™ was designed to disrupt the way we deal with waste and waste disposal. In the same way that the PC brought data processing power into our homes, the FLEXIBUSTER™ decentralises waste processing power and allows the customer to operate their own waste-to-energy generator using the waste on site as fuel and localise testing for viruses. A significant part of SEaB Energy’s mission is to change how we globally think of waste: not as waste, but as a powerful resource.

Competitive Advantage

With SEaB Energy, we managed for the first time to pack the process of anaerobic digestion in a standardised, automated, modular and mobile piece of technology that allows true decentralised waste-to-energy processing. Though anaerobic digestion has been used to harvest resources from waste for many years at larger scale, the FLEXIBUSTER™ for the first time brings this process directly to the waste producers, allowing them to extract the valuable resources themselves and use these resources on the spot. The containerised packaging of the FLEXIBUSTER™ makes it quick and easy to transport and install, anywhere in the world.

Planned Goals and Milestones

Deploying the units with the testing equipment incorporated. Further improving the rapid deployment of our units. Scaling the production of our units. Incorporating offgrid storage for the gas or the electricity.
