Sustainable Green Technologies (SGTech) is a cleantech startup specializes in providing a complete and sustainable solution to the livestock industry: SGTech has developed an innovative biological process, combining enhanced biogas production with simultaneous removal of nutrients from livestock manure and slurry. The end products are clean energy, clean water, and a safe solid fertilizer. Key advantages over conventional treatment methods include: more energy – Methane content in the biogas is 65% or greater, which is 20% higher than conventional anaerobic digestion (AD) from cattle manure – improved Biomethane purification, nutrient Management – This process removes up to 90% nitrogen and 75% phosphorus from the liquid waste – major limitation for increasing herd size and others.
Founded in 2015, Sustainable Green Technologies (SGTech) was born out of the desire to create a more sustainable world. Sustainable Green Technologies (SGTech) is a pioneering Israeli startup developing innovative technologies focused on waste treatment, clean energy, and nutrient recovery.
SGTech’s patented Integrated Ecosystem Solution (IES) is the only complete solution for the treatment of livestock waste – one that produces clean energy, clean water, and a nutrient-rich organic compost. Specifically, SGTech has aimed to address environmental issues resulting from improper waste management in the livestock industry.
The technology produces enriched biogas and simultaneously removes and recovers nutrients from the waste stream. The result is an end-to-end solution that improves each area of sustainable agriculture – cleaner energy, cleaner water, and cleaner soil.
Through years of Research and Development, SGTech has developed innovations in nutrient recovery, integrated biogas solutions, and water recycling. We are now in the process of designing and building custom-made treatment plants that best suit each farms’ specific needs.
SGTech is in the process of building the first full-scale projects (500-2000 cows) in selected markets. We aim to establish 5 projects in Israel and 5 projects abroad using the IES process in 2019-2020.
SGTech employs a business model in which the company licenses its patented IES technology to biogas developers for use in new projects in return for a royalty on project revenues.
This model ensures that all parties’ interests are properly aligned and creates a unique win-win solution on all sides.
