Our Story

Arc Ento Tech was incorporated in Australia in Feb 2020 after conducting proof of concept trials overseas. Its focus is on the use of insects to recover nutrients from organic waste and combining with a novel approach to recovering and converting all plastic waste into viable commercial products.

The company has established both markets and clients for the sale and supply of waste, as well as waste derived products and is ready to commercialise the first set of plants.

This is leading edge technology that will change the landscape of waste processing around the world. Following on from the demonstration and initial start-up plants there are already discussions to construct and operate at least seven full scale plants as early as 2024 with overseas expansion following shortly after.
