Alimentary Systems



A BioResource Recovery Plant (BRRP) uses technology that mimics a cow's digestive system to increase renewable energy output by 400%. The recovery of energy and nutrients enables a circular economy, achieving zero waste and no liquid discharge into oceans.
The BRRP diverts organic waste from landfills to boost renewable energy by 400%, offering a green LPG alternative and cutting waste disposal costs by 50-80%. It recycles nutrients like phosphorus and nitrogen into organic fertilisers, improving soil health and reducing fossil fuel-based imports. Leveraging the UN's Clean Development Mechanism, the BRRP sells carbon credits, clean energy, and organic fertiliser, aiming for an 8-10-year ROI.
We are Pre-Revenue. 1. Grant Funding US$2.78M 2. Seed Capital US$0.77M. Seeking $2M USD, we plan to upscale our modular technology from 1-tonne to 10-tonne capacity at a commercial site on Bell Island in Nelson. The system is designed to operate for five years, and we've already secured the necessary land, waste streams, and permits.
Through BRRP.IO, we're pioneering a new approach utilising the Open Earth registry. This provides robust, data-backed evidence for significant emissions reductions based on IPCC standards, facilitating sustainable investments in waste-to-energy systems. We aim to convert a $125B waste emissions liability into renewable energy infrastructure.
Backed by an experienced manufacturing supply chain under the Edmund Hillary Fellowship and supported by Waste Minimisation and Innovation Grants from the NZ Government, we are ideally positioned for the project's next phase.
UNSDG 13 Climate Action: Achieve zero emissions and waste to landfill.
UNSDG 7 Affordable Clean Energy: Increase bioenergy from organic waste, enhancing energy resilience.
UNSDG 6 Clean Water and Sanitation: Implement zero liquid discharge and circular economy-based wastewater infrastructure.
UNSDG 9 Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure: Manage all bio-organic waste in one plant to benefit farmers and taxpayers—Utilise Gross Emissions Reductions for clean energy funding per IPCC standards.
UNSDG 11 Sustainable Cities: Scale to suit small towns for green job creation and minimise land footprint for waste processing.
UNSDG 3 Good Health & Wellbeing: Curb wastewater sludge discharge to reduce ocean acidification and reduce nitrates in groundwater.
