Who We Are


Who we are

Reuse Technologies SA (RTSA) is a company specializing in waste treatment facilities while providing an innovative solution to divert all Biomass fractions from landfills, converting it to biofuels and other usable products with no residue thus providing a zero-waste community.

RTSA is the answer to fighting global warming and putting a stop to the landfill usage. Imagine a world where the Demonstration-testing for waste-to-energy (WtE) technology adoption was supported by the state and municipal level, and our waste was viewed as a commodity instead of an expense. Initially, the proportion of cities that see the opportunity will be modest, but the RTSA feasibility will justify an extended development of WtEinfrastructure in the focus area, and quickly balance the proportion.

Participation within this RTSA framework

Participation within this RTSA framework will provide local authorities with an opportunity to commoditize their waste in novel ways that benefit both the taxpayer and the local economy. The RTSA framework for applying WtE technologies presents an opportunity to generate more immediately available electricity, and stored energy products.

We present an opportunity to turn overflowing waste streams into much-needed revenue streams with a unique Market Transformation Model that will change how municipal waste is viewed and handled for the foreseeable future. RTSA through its innovative process reduces carbon footprint. We can diversify energy production, while at the same time decreasing landfill use and increasing revenue and employment. Our modular process facilities can be adapted to different WtE problems and offer a range of metro solutions for the environment.


A unique framework

RTSA proposes a unique framework that addresses municipal and commercial adoption of high impact WtE technologies as a coordinated technical engineering challenge. This distinguishes the RTSA system from smart-grid efforts and public use demonstrations programs in isolation.

In response to the grave situation of waste management in the Western Cape, where the Western Cape Department of Environmental Affairs (WCDEA) has announced a 100% ban on organic waste to landfill by 2027, with a half-way target of 50% of organic waste from landfill by 2022. Reuse Technologies SA has an integrated technology that will combat this ban while converting the organic waste into energy.

Furthermore, Reuse Technologies SA see’s the issue the WCDEA is trying to fix as a response to the diversion plan issued to solve the 'waste problem' and intends to use its Waste-to-Energy Facility as a Training, Marketing, and Sales center for the sale of further innovative organic waste to saccharides facilities. The use of saccharides as the intermediate, or platform, the chemical will allow for the production of a variety of renewable fuels, or other products, dependent on the local requirements.

Reuse Technologies SA aims to establish resource efficiency throughout South Africa and Sub Saharan Africa with the erection of Biomethanation Plants. Poised with a wealth of research and development in the Green Technology Sector, Reuse Technologies SA has a solution to climate change challenges and establish itself as a leader in environmental technology on a national and international scale.

We intend on changing the current linear waste economy into a circular economy which will transform the way society views and treats waste. Reuse Technologies SA is on a mission to achieve separation of waste at the source being at home which will contribute to a better environment and efficient way of handling waste.

Our Waste-to-Energy Plants will give rise to a revolution in Waste Management as all organic waste will be transported to Reuse Technologies SA Biomethanation Plants instead of landfills. The organic waste to be used in various processes with the end result being green products which will be re -entering into the society with value attached to it.

The Organic waste will pass through unique digester reactors and our own Hydrostatic Pressure Vessel, to produce Methane Gas for a wide variety of lucrative by -products rendering itself a waste -free waste process. We intend on creating the Biomethanation Plants to be a powerful source of stimulus to the recessive economy with a much needed growth impact on its surrounding communities.

RTSA intends to become a leader in providing commercial green solutions for processing organic waste across Africa. As long as there are people, there will always be ‘waste’. We try to look at the situation differently. We see ‘waste’ not as a liability, but as an asset. We want to change people's perception as we see society's everyday waste as an unlimited source of energy, and our job is to speed up the evolution process through RTSA.

Imagine a future where cities across the world have turned their waste streams into revenue streams. The potential to remediate existing landfill sites for reuse near conurbations thus making the land available for schools, housing, parks, etc. These are significant and important goals for RTSA.

There is a pressing need to minimize the organic waste headed for landfills.

Biomass is readily available in increasingly large quantity in the world.

Such civilization adapted would make Countries compliant with United Nation Policies (Kyoto Protocol, Paris Agreement, Climate Change and becoming Carbon Neutral).

Biogas has fuel properties similar to the conventional fuel.

Biogas is non-toxic, biodegradable and safe to handle.

Biogas is a source of huge income as waste can be converted into valuable green products.

Biogas is economically friendly

Provides additional revenues for the gas, agricultural and forestry sectors etc.

Enhancing energy security by diversifying energy sources and utilizing local sources

Reduces carbon emission, climate change and adheres to the 100% diversion of organic waste.

Increases in the price of fossil fuels, and growing concerns regarding their finite availability, use and impacts (including climate change) have driven the demand of biomass for energy purposes worldwide.

Bio fuels are perceived to be a good alternative to fossil fuels and a path way out of poverty for developing countries.

Perfectly and purposely positioned to what is the 4th Industrial Revolution. Reuse Technologies SA will meet all deliverables both from Citizens and Governmental expectations. With electricity and Oil tariffs escalating at a rapid pace the demand for alternative power sources has increased. One of these renewable energy sources includes the use of biogas.

Biogas is not only one of the most efficient and effective renewable energy possibilities available but also requires less capital investment as compared to other renewable sources like hydro, solar and wind and are also more economical as it involves less per unit production cost. We have developed a Self -Sustainable Biogas plant which deals with organic waste and produces life changing by -products

There is a growing interest in the production of biomass for biofuels, and large -scale energy production.

There is also evidence of biophysical suitability for biofuel feedstocks exists with the long -term presence of bio waste.

Re-Commitment: Solutions

Reuse provides ‘turnkey’ solutions to maximise commercial viability for the private sector along with consumer affordability, delivered through long term demand profiles. Reuse aims to benefit indigenous economies through appropriate supply chain design and to act responsibly within the communities in which it operates.

The World are currently struggling with a massive under capacity in their requirement for the disposal of municipal solid waste, the treatment of waste water sludge from large municipal/utility operated sewerage treatment plants and more generally, all other forms of biomass waste generated by industry and agriculture.

Re-Commitment: No More

This has come about due to a prolonged period of under investment by the local authorities, central government and the utilities with little pressure from the regulators to improve this situation.

As a result, biomass waste is largely dumped in landfill sites around the country or burned in industrial incinerators and it is clear to all involved that this situation cannot continue.

Re-Commitment: Biomass to Bio-fuels

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean.

Re-Commitment: Liabilities to Assets

The process is not dependent on food crops such as wheat and corn, but takes commercial advantage of industrial waste (paper and wood high in cellulose), municipal solid waste (after separation of the biomass element), sludge from waste water treatment processes (which are a major problem for the water companies) and other cellulose materials that would otherwise be discharged to landfill changing liabilities to assets.
