Recyllose™ - a new commodity

Recyllose™- a new valuable source of revenue

Recyllose™ (= Recycled Cellulose) is a unique and valuable commodity produced automatically by Applied CleanTech’s Sewage Recycling System (SRS™) in the process of extracting bio-solids from wastewater. This versatile new compound, which consists mostly of recycled cellulose fibers, is reusable as an alternative fuel; a heat source; environmentally-friendly electricity; an additive to the pulp and paper industry; and an additive for the bio-plastics industry.

Over the last few months there has been a successful collaboration going on at the Aarle-Rikstel waste water treatment plant in the SRS pilot. This is an effort to take a few actual steps toward the goal of transforming the Water Boards into producers of raw materials.
Every year in the Netherlands we flush at least 170 tons of toilet paper down the toilet. With Applied CleanTech’s SRS technology, these cellulose fibers can be recovered to be processed into a unique raw material, Recyllose™.
Moreover, it leads to less pressure on the environment, lower water treatment costs and more capacity at the treatment plant.

Recyllose™ can be used for the production of bio-composite materials, biofuels, asphalt, insulation materials, etc. A number of parties are already at work. 

Applied CleanTech has found a viable and economical way to create a new resource derived from wastewater – Recyllose™. This unique new compound consists of recycled cellulose fibers extracted from wastewater. Recyllose™ is manufactured in the form of pellets and can be packaged in varying sizes according to client specifications.

Using the SRS™, the company's wastewater proprietary bio-solids recycling process yields a variety of resalable and profitable products under the Recyllose™ brand name.


Recyllose™ is manufactured instantaneously, without human intervention, in the form of pellets or pulp, and is reusable in a variety of industries, such as:

• An alternative fuel, namely high-quality bio-diesel, or replacing ethanol as a combustible for power plants.
• A heat source that is economical, energy-efficient and eco-friendly: The Recyllose™ pellets are safe to burn and do not cause environmental pollution, yet have a higher caloric value than wood    pellets.
•  Electricity that is environmentally-friendly.
•  Feedstock for the paper and pulp industry. Using this unique commodity, the pulp and paper industries increase utilization of recycled fiber by 10%-15%, a percentage that is expected to increase in the future. Moreover, by using Recyllose™, the pulp industry reduces the need for tree-timbering, as well as minimizes water and energy consumption.
• An additive to the bio-plastics industry. Using Recyllose™ as feedstock for manufacturing plastic will lower production costs considerably, thereby enhancing the cost effectiveness of the entire bio-plastics industry, while increasing the use of recycled sources as an alternative to fossil fuels.
