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.
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.
