Sustinent Pty Ltd is an Australian agricultural biotechnology company with a distinct environmental focus.

Capturing the attention of state governments, agriculture producers and investors alike, Sustinent’s growing portfolio of biomass conversion methods unlock the potential of green waste to generate in-demand materials.

WHAT WE CARE ABOUT

Globally, agriculture produces around 100 billion tonnes of extraneous green ‘waste’ every year.

When this material isn’t used effectively, it becomes an environmental problem. It’s burnt and pollutes the atmosphere, or rots in landfill, taking up space and producing greenhouse gas. Both situations are detrimental to human health and the planet.

Climate change is affecting the livelihoods of farmers. They face the increasing challenges of droughts, floods and bushfires that devastate crops and deplete livestock feed.

HOW WE HELP

As Sustinent engage industry to recycle green waste at scale, we simultaneously prioritise developing products of both environmental and economic value.

For instance, the production of high-quality livestock feed from sugarcane trash via our biotechnology innovation provides farmers in need with a vital resource. Plus, it lessens the environmental impact of traditional sugarcane waste reduction activities.

Backed by industry research, scientific knowledge and sheer determination to make a difference, we exploit environmentally friendly processes – i.e. that use little water or land – to generate value-added products from green waste.
