CIRCULAR ECONOMY THROUGH INNOVATION
Bonbio realised early on that there was an opportunity to breathe new life into the nutrients in our food waste. The company has developed a concept where food waste and other organic waste is treated and processed to form liquid plant nutrients.
Bonbio plant nutrients are made from biofertiliser from one of Sweden’s largest biogas plants near Helsingborg, which is operated by Bonbio’s sister company Biond. The company has integrated the product in a circular cycle where the nutrients from degradable food waste are returned to the food chain by using them to grow new crops and leafy greens.
Bonbio’s plant nutrients are free from added pesticides and are used with good results in high-tech indoor facilities growing crops using hydroponic and vertical shelf systems. These plant nutrients can also be used for domestic cultivation and large-scale production of plants and greens.
