Want to be a part of solving the climate crisis? Then join the team of The Waste Transformers as our Sales Manager.

About The Company

We turn food waste into positive value on-site with our innovative food waste solution. We developed an on-site containerized anaerobic digester, called a Waste Transformer. It is placed next to companies or in communities that produce food waste. Biodegradable waste, such as kitchen waste and commercial waste, is used to create biogas and then converted into electricity and heat. The food waste itself turns into liquid natural fertilizer ready to replace (polluting) artificial fertilizers.

With clients from Africa to Europe and the Middle East and a team from 7 different countries, our company is very international and embraces diversity.
