About

Wastek S.A is specialized in the collection and recycling of agricultural residues such as: sugarcane bagasse, rice husks, etc. which will be transformed into fuel briquettes.  These residues will be used as an energy alternative to wood-based energy targeted at dry cleaners, households, bakeries, distilleries, laundries, etc... Non-valued agricultural residue has great potential to satisfy 100% of the energy demand in rural areas, where the primary energy supply is from firewood and charcoal.
