TreaTech was founded in 2015 by Life Sciences and Chemical Engineers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, with the goal of harnessing the power of the circular economy to convert waste into valuable by-products.
To do this, TreaTech has developed patented technology that uses catalytic hydrothermal gasification (HTG) to convert a broad range of waste streams that are usually incinerated into integral resources in a sustainable and cost-efficient manner. These include capturing fresh water for industrial and consumer use, salts and minerals used for fertiliser such as phosphorous, nitrogen and potassium, as well as a constant supply of methane-rich renewable gas that can be injected into the grid network, stored or used to produce electricity at our customers’ sites.
TreaTech’s technology provides a solution to both short-term and long-term problems. In the short-term it can provide a secure feedstock of renewable gas that can enhance supplies for businesses and consumers, improving regional resilience to a sudden spike in wholesale gas prices. Long-term, TreaTech provides a clean technology solution that can reduce the climate impact of current waste treatment solutions.
Today, the TreaTech team consists of 10 experienced and highly motivated team members with more than 50 years of expertise in entrepreneurship, technology validation, process engineering and catalyst research. We are passionate about sustainability and believe the necessary climate change mitigation measures can only be achieved if we deviate from our current course with disruptive innovation and immediate action. TreaTech’s technology is one of the many solutions required to help shape a sustainable future.
