The company has a technology where a combination of unique non-harmful bacteria are able to ferment and break down food waste which prior has been challenging to ferment. The bacteria is enabled to do this by being fed unique metal complex as a feed supplement. This combination of bacteria and bacteria feed supplement induces and boosts the bacterial production of certain bio-active metabolites in large quantities. These metabolites could be separated from the bacterial mix. The resulting metabolite mixture has unique anti-bacteria and anti-fungi properties.
This mixture is applied as an edible surface coating for food produce to prolong shelf life, such as different meats, fish and vegetables. This will lead to reduced costs for waste of food products due to expiration. For end consumers, the food will have longer life in the fridge and in the open, and there is less risk of consuming spoiled food.

As the metabolite mixture is produced by bacteria fermentation in tanks with food waste as raw material, the production costs are very low.

The food waste that remains after fermentation could also be used for a refined animal feed products. It is after fermentation more complete broken down into fibers and other nutrients, but also has a key feature of being a probiotic/prebiotic feed products. When animals, like cows, are fed the waste product, it improves the gut flora and results in less emissions from the animals. These emissions are one of the most contributing factor to the green house effect and global warming.

The food waste product after fermentation could also be used in new ways due to its degradation into separate constituents. The company have seen how vegetable based fibers are released from fermentation process. This could open up new revenue streams and applications areas for the food waste product. Our concept with the fermented food waste fibers has been shown to be beneficial to be used in combination with recycled wood fibers in the paper pulp manufacturing industry. Paper pulp manufacturing have huge problems with bacteria build up and slime throughout the paper manufacturing. By combining the raw material with TekInn food waste fiber by product, the bacteria build up could be prevented. Less need and reduced use of bactericidal products damaging health and the environment, and reduced costs for the paper pulp producer. E.g. coffee grounds fibers could become a constituent in recycled paper pulp production.
