Advetec is an environmental biotechnology business specialising in the on-site aerobic digestion of general and residual waste.
As the only provider of on-site aerobic treatment for general and residual waste in the UK, Advetec can typically halve the waste customers send for disposal by removing the organic fraction.
By minimising waste mass and volume, Advetec’s technology reduces waste collections – which means significant cost savings, fewer trucks on the road and lower carbon emissions, plus reduced methane production as less organic matter goes to landfill.
Already, Advetec has diverted 18,000 tonnes of waste from landfill and saved 98,000MTCO2 emissions.
How many organisations/clients currently utilise the service/solution across the UK?
At present, a select number of UK businesses and organisations are using Advetec’s technology to champion waste management best practice and unlock financial and environmental gains. As the zero to landfill agenda gathers pace and NHS Trusts invest in actionable and results-led Green Plans – Advetec has ambitious plans for growth.
Is there anything you would like to make delegates aware of ahead of the Healthcare Facilities Management Conference?
Many NHS Trust are operating with the mistaken belief that the majority of their waste is recycled.
In fact more than half still goes to landfill or to be incinerated.
Why? Because when food and other organic matter is mixed with general waste it cannot be sorted. This means it can’t be recycled or burned as waste for energy.
Advetec is on a mission to help NHS Trusts accelerate their Green Plans by removing organics from the waste management process. This reduces waste collections, non-clinical spend and waste-related carbon emissions.
What do you feel are the key points delegates need to digest when considering a partnership with your organisation?
If organisations want to reduce residual waste by 50%, reduce waste management costs by 50% and lower carbon emissions by 20%, Advetec can help.
Organisations considering a partnership with Advetec will have an appetite to use innovation to unlock waste management efficiencies and reduce their non-clinical spend – all as part of developing, delivering and accelerating a robust Green Plan.
