ASM is an innovative and modern Biotechnology company that specialises in Organic Recyclates. Our business, right from the outset, has been to offer affordable technology for solving escalating organic waste disposal problems, with our focus on cost reduction for our clients and environmental benefits for us all. To do that, we offer a closed loop solution, where nothing is wasted – everything is recycled into a useful form. This has only been possible with the breakthrough of ASM’s fully patented Accelerated Thermophilic Aerobic Digester (ATAD), with its ability to process mixed organic food and green waste to produce a high nutrient, stable, non-toxic fertiliser pellet in typically three days. We call this revolutionary technology, the `ecoHERO`.

Clearly then it offers companies that generate or collect organic biodegradeable waste, a less expensive option than sending to landfill, macerating into the waterways, or incineration. All of which generate a carbon footprint at least 80% higher than the solution offered by the 'ecoHERO'. To reinforce our commitment to our belief, we purchase the fertiliser pellets from all our clients!
The 'ecoHERO' also converts organic waste into other useful resources, such as animal feed and raw energy for energy plants or biomass systems.
In today’s business environment, no company can afford to waste money - or waste the planet! It’s a fact that waste is an essential part of providing food products and services. By working with the ASM Group you will eliminate sending waste to landfill, waterways or to incineration, while reducing your costs.
bout the ASM Group
ASM is a UK incorporated environmental Biotech company, located in London. Founded in 2003, ASM’s business focus is the marketing and sales of its patented Accelerated Thermophilic Aerobic Digestion technology (ATAD), which converts organic waste materials into commercially viable commodities such as granular fertiliser, animal feed and pure energy.
The revolutionary breakthrough that characterises ASM’s ATAD process is its ability to convert mixed food and agricultural waste streams into non-toxic, stable fertiliser pellets in a period of approximately 3 days.
Such a capability to convert different organic wastes in such a short timeframe creates unique commercial opportunities. It allows companies and organisations increased efficiency and cost-effectiveness of converting food waste and agriculture wastes into a valuable end product which they can sell or utilise in a further recycling process.
This allows ASM to offer all those generating biodegradeable waste, a cost-effective alternative to landfill disposal and waterways pollution, seriously reducing the carbon footprint of these generators of biodegradeable waste.
Extensive testing carried out at the Ecosystem Laboratory of the Open University confirms that ASM’s fertiliser recyclates enhance soil fertility, thereby reducing the carbon side effects of chemical fertiliser and pesticides into the environment.
ASM Group will lead by example in its own activities through the commitment to its Environmental Strategy and will aim to minimise the impacts of its activities to the environment.
We will continuously develop new strategy and incorporate new methods to improve it as far as possible. ASM Group will ensure that environmental priorities are integrated into the decisions it takes on all its services and will seek whenever it has a regulatory or influential role to:

- Protect, restore and enhance the diversity of the District's wildlife and countryside
- Conserve and enhance the character and quality of the District's built environment
