Biomass Controls provides decentralized rapid nutrient recovery and treatment for green resources including, manure, textiles, food and excreta.
Biomass Controls PBC was founded in 2015 in Connecticut as part of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Re-Invented Toilet Challenge for a project in India. Biomass Controls patents are based on protecting the environment and returning nutrients to the soil. Our Biogenic Refinery provides thermochemical treatment of high moisture materials such as manures, human excreta, agriculture residues and food waste. Our services provide Design, Technology Adoption Support, and Impact Measurement.
In 2018 we were chosen to participate in the Toilet Accelerator program and in 2019 we were selected to participate in the Cohort Council. The members of the Toilet Board Coalition believe that by accelerating the Sanitation Economy they will deliver significant impact to business and society. The sponsors of this event include Unilever, Kimberly Clark, Veolia, Water.org, USAID and unicef.
In 2019 we were chosen to participate in the Manure Challenge Accelerator program organized by the Yield Lab Institute. The Manure Challenge guides startups with solutions that enable economically and environmentally superior manure management practices on an expedited path to market. The sponsors of this event include Cargill, the Maschhoffs and WeWork Food Labs.
Biomass Controls helps bring the vision of the Circular Sanitation Economy to reality with human-centered innovations that harness the potential of waste streams by generating energy, reusable water and biochar.

AgTech / Food Partners
Legacy management systems for food, and agricultural waste can produce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through the digestion of organic matter. Through strategic partnerships, Biomass Controls has utilized the Biogenic Refinery and integrated kelv°n™ platform mitigates the creation of these GHG emissions by thermochemically converting the waste into a nutrient rich biochar, and calculates offset credits available to the operator.
Centralized management systems for wastewater treatment are very expensive and can produce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through the digestion of organic matter.
