Elemental is an Agri-Food company with tech it estimates converts 78% of beef processing waste to sustainable products. Potential reduction to global beef CO2 emissions equivalent to 50 million cattle. Tech successfully licensed to a multi-€bn turnover European food producer. First plant expected to be operational Dec-21.
Our mission: to substantially lower the carbon footprint of global meat production. We turn what would normally be waste, into high-value, sustainable food ingredient & fertiliser products.
Our technology: we take residual bone & meat trim that is usually wasted direct from a meat production process to capture high-quality edible protein & fats. We then convert all other unavoidable inedible waste into a sustainable fertiliser. The tech has been developed through extensive R&D & protected by patents in 60+ countries.
To create a sustainable future for our growing population we need to find ways to urgently reduce waste & increase food supply. Our technology plays its part with an estimated 20% extra edible protein & 25% fat recovered. We have the potential to reduce global beef cattle by 50 million substantially reducing CO2 emissions without cutting current beef protein production levels. Our fertiliser provides much needed natural nutrients to improve declining soil & plant health benefiting future generations all with a lower carbon footprint than mined fertiliser.
We incorporated in 2012 and raised £1.5m on Crowdcube in late 2019. Since then we've:
- Built a demonstrator plant
- Successfully licensed our tech to a multi-€bn turnover European food producer - first plant expected to be operational by Q4 2021
- Agreed commercial terms for tech installation projects at 6 UK abattoirs
