Latin America Project Development
Biosistemas Sustenables is a Mexican company that has perfected a method of recycling and composting using special enzymes which enables them to produce a valuable fertilizer additive called NaturAbono from organic material in municipal solid waste. This process is completed in only 21 days and reaches a temperature of 78 degrees celsius as compared with 180 or more days and only 50 degrees celsius with conventional composting. The result is a faster turnaround time and a pathogen-free product.
This process is already in place at the Nicolas Romero waste processing site in Mexico where adaptiveARC’s production prototype began operation in July of 2010. Combined with manual and mechanical extraction of recyclable materials, the production of NaturAbono at this site results in the diversion of 85% of all waste received. The remaining 15% will no longer be landfilled but instead processed by the ce25. The result is a 100% diversion solution which can be reproduced at numerous sites around Mexico and the world.
The head of Biosistemas Sustenables is Carlos Rello. In addition to being a major investor in adaptiveARC and adaptiveARC Mexico, Mr. Rello is a member of the current Mexican government with many political and professional ties which continue to prove valuable to business development in Mexico.
