The multi award-winning Flexibuster™ has been designed and engineered
to turn a wide range of organic waste into energy

Flexibuster, how does it work?

The problem: The food chain produces a lot of waste material which needs managing. Traditional ways of dealing with this waste are not sustainable. The increasing pressure on landfill sites is driving the cost of waste management up. Hauling this waste from the point of production to centralised facilities adds cost and increases the carbon footprint of the waste.

The solution: Flexibuster: The multi-award winning technology from SEaB energy that can be delivered to site ready for plug-and-play installation, and which turns your organic waste into energy right at the point where the waste is generated and the energy is required.

Flexibuster™ has been designed to provide a logical and sustainable way of capturing the energy that remains in food waste. Instead of paying for this waste to be taken away and processed somewhere else, why not turn that waste into free energy and heat on-site? The containerised anaerobic digesters (AD) are fully automated and remotely monitored. You tip your food waste into the mouth at one end and simply leave the rest to Flexibuster™. State-of-the-art sensors and controls will automatically prepare this material for digestion and control the flow of material through the system.

The patented process extracts maximum energy from the waste stream in the form of Biogas which is then used to fuel a CHP engine to provide electricity and heat. Because of the built-in pasteurisation process, Flexibuster™ can process a wide range of feed-stocks in a completely safe, odour free environment.

Case Studies


Biowaste production is estimated to be 120 million tonnes per year in the EU alone, increasing by 10% each year. At least 40% of this is landfilled or incinerated with only 25% energy recovery, due to a lack of alternatives. When the Portuguese…
