Lystek

Lystek International Inc. is an award-winning organic materials recovery firm with proven solutions that is helping municipalities and other generators reduce waste, costs, odors and greenhouse gas emissions through its innovative approach to biosolids and organics management. Lystek’s patented low-temperature Thermal Hydrolysis Process (Lystek THP®) leverages an innovative and proprietary combination of chemical, thermal and physical processes to transform biosolids into a high-solids liquid product with multi-purpose applications. Lystek THP transforms biosolids and other organics into a product that can be used to enhance BNR systems (LysteCarb®), anaerobic digestion (LysteMize®) and produces a Class A quality biofertilizer for agricultural use (LysteGro®). LysteGro is sold into local agricultural markets and used as a fertilizer product, recovering valuable nutrients and improving soils and crop yields.
