Transforming the food system so everyone can access healthy food that is grown regeneratively.

Vision

Imagine a circular
economy model

in a local municipality where food scraps and garden waste is collected, upcycled into a variety of high value products that are returned back to the community to grow healthy and nutritious food?

 

In the process, using regenerative methods, soil, plant, human health is improved, ecosystems, biological diversity is restored and GHG reduced and food security raised!

Situation

There are massive amounts of potentially valuable organic matter generated in local municipalities all over the world. This organic matter is referred to as bio-waste. Unfortunately, most of this bio-waste never gets recycled but instead ends up in landfills and incinerators causing pollution and wasting precious resources.

At the same time, the way we grow our food industrially is exhausting our soils and ecosystems. Soil gobally are getting poorer by losing organic matter, nutrients and biology – ironically, these are just the ingredients present in bio-waste!

LESS

than 2% of the nutrients in food waste is looped in cities;

LESS

than 60 harvests are available now globally due to soil depletion;

INDUSTRIAL

agriculture accounts for 25 % of total climate emissions

Challenge

We should
drastically increase

the diversion of carbon and nutrients from municipal food waste into a food production model that supports regeneration and sustainability of our soil, human and planetary health.
We need to
Incentivize more local municipalities and communities to start seperate collection of organic waste
Reinforce collaboration between bio-waste recycling companies and food growers involved in carbon farming, regenerative agriculture and agroforestry.
Transition from a linear take-make-dispose mindset to a circular one emulating natures principles.
Engage participation by creating and communicating a context in which food waste is part of a solution instead of a problem.

Solution

NutriLoop – The Carbon and nutrient looping system for bio-waste.

How does it work?

02

ENGAGE

municipalities and organisations in the NutriLoop system by communicating our compelling vision and the solution.

01

COLLECT

clean, source separated bio-waste materials and sort them by quality and properties.

03

VALORIZE

materials in a near-by facility into novel products using effective and innovative methods.

04

SUPPLY

products back to the community and farmers to grow healthy food regeneratively.
