Organic waste becomes clean water

23. May 2019


The Styrian company Botres Global is battling the organic waste in Ibiza. This accounts for 50 percent of total waste. Landfilling leads to the uncontrolled production of greenhouse gases, as organic waste is not separated from residual waste. Using unique technology, organic waste is now treated to produce biomethane, high quality fertilizer and clean water. In September 2020, the plant will be put into operation.


Organic waste becomes clean water

Their latest garbage project is now being launched by the Styrian company Botres Global GmbH where it is needed: on the party island of Ibiza.

They take on a big one: organic waste. Not only eliminate it, but turn it into biogas, clean water and fertilizer. Every year, there are about 1.5 million tourists who spend their holidays on the popular Spanish island. The flip side of the medal shimmering in the glow of party lights and beautiful scenery: the garbage that tourism leaves behind year after year. This is what an Austrian company says about the fight.

Strictly speaking, the company Botres Global based in Hart near Graz has dedicated itself to the processing of organic waste. After all, that accounts for 50 percent of the total amount. When organic waste and residual waste  are landfilled together – in Ibiza, organic waste in the households, trade and gastronomy is not yet separated – it comes to the uncontrolled production of greenhouse gases. The Styrian company has found a solution for this. Using unique technology, organic waste is treated to produce biomethane, high-quality fertilizer and clean water. And that without emissions.

With its state-of-the-art facilities, Botres Global has left behind strong competitors and won over the organic waste project on the Balearic Island. The work and planning is in full swing, with the plant going into operation in September 2020.
