Who We Are

Leaders in Innovative Biomass and Bio-waste Management Technology

Pelleton Renewables is more than just managing waste. Our patented technology involves managing waste and recycling it through a unique pelletization process which provides energy and environmental solutions.

We are pioneering biomass and bio-waste management technology. Biomass and bio-waste are pelletized, significantly reducing the volume of these by-products going into landfill. We help you manage your biomass and bio-waste by-products and gain efficiencies in waste management in a cost effective way, which doesn’t impact the environment adversely. 

Biomass and bio-waste by-products are transformed to create energy and fertilizer opportunities efficiently, solving the biomass and bio-waste management issue.

We’re also focussed on providing environmental clean up solutions and addressing PFAS, soil and water contamination issues through the recycling of biomass and bio-waste, to create highly effective absorption pellets.

Company Overview

The company was established in 2018 with a view to being a leader in recycling and transforming biomass and bio-wastes.

Over the next decade the USA alone intends to spend in excess of US$1 trillion on waste management, via expensive, heat intensive, high emission and odor producing technologies.

Pelleton Renewables therefore developed a unique technology which uses a simple low cost, low energy process to convert biomass and bio-waste feedstock into low volume pellets which are anticipated to be used for landfill, fuel, fertilizers and environmental clean up solutions.

By capturing value from waste through innovative solutions, Pelleton products address local government, agricultural and industrial producers biggest pain points at a time when there is significant demand for these solutions, creating the perfect product-market fit in satisfying strong market demand.

The Pelleton Renewables patented technology manages waste in an efficient manner, converting it into a resource which will provide long term, viable energy and fertilizer solutions to the USA market.

Pelleton is strongly positioned to address the US Biomass Fuel market and create effective solutions to biomass and bio-wastes, enabling a more environmentally conscious, cost efficient and sustainable industry.
