Transforming industrial waste

Sola Fidei Manufacturing converts petrochemical waste sludge, containing harmful trace elements, into environmentally friendly compost. The petrochemical industry creates large volumes of waste sludge that has traditionally been incinerated or dumped on hazardous waste sites. Sola Fidei release petrochemical manufacturers of the burden of disposing of its toxic waste, and in the same process creates natural compost for the agricultural industry.

About Us

Sola Fidei Manufacturing is a leader in the field of the bio-processing of industrial waste. Our process uses microbes to turn chemical waste sludge into compost, thereby converting the harmful trace elements in the waste into an environment-friendly agricultural product.

Sola Fidei can compost different types of waste produced by the petrochemical industry. We proved that the available by-products of effluent streams are viable for composting and that the resultant product is suitable for agricultural use as well as for bioremediation purposes. Sola Fidei run trials on the different effluent waste products to confirm the feasibility of remediation.

The Sola Fidei process utilizes agriculturally grown biomass (plant matter) as a bulking agent to give it volume, and microbial amendments to bio-chemically transform the harmful trace elements in the waste sludge. The processes we developed for the different sludges, enable us to produce compost within a predetermined time-frame.

Sola Fidei Manufacturing places strong emphasis on skills development for our employees in the fields of management, and quality control. The initial phase of the Sola Fidei process created 25 jobs and in full operation it will create 150 job opportunities. The Sola Fidei process of effluent waste management can be applied anywhere, and we are exploring opportunities to introduce it to countries such as the United States and Australia

Bioremediation

Bioremediation is the process of introducing micro-organisms to break down hazardous materials. The Sola Fidei process uses naturally occurring micro-organisms (microbes) to break down any hazardous material and pollutants produced in the manufacturing process, including chemicals, heavy metals and oil. Sola Fidei can customize bioremediation techniques to fit the needs of any industry depending on the specific waste profile of the industry. The process simultaneously neutralizes the harmful effects of waste products on the ecosystem.

Bioremediation is a waste management technique and our process ensures that any industry, factory or process that creates polluting or hazardous waste, is able to safely get rid of its waste. At the same time it neutralizes the harmful effects of waste products on the ecosystem.

Fit-for-purpose problem solving

The Sola Fidei process of hazardous waste management is flexible and can be used on a wide variety of industrial waste. A hazardous waste is a special type of waste because it cannot be disposed of by common means like other everyday by-products. Depending on the physical state of the waste, treatment and solidification processes might be required. This is what Sola Fidei specialises in.

We provide waste solutions where our clients are urgently looking for answers, by assessing every client's challenges and then providing cost-effective solutions. In areas where clients are looking for a safer and environmentally responsible way of getting rid of harmful waste, Sola Fidei assists in the process on a trial basis.

Bioremediation is done on our premises in Mpumalanga, ensuring a cost effective location within affordable distance from clients' locations. This is a substantially less expensive way of getting rid of harmful industrial waste than the traditional way which may involve long distance transport.

To save clients the cost of long distance transportation of waste to dumping sites, Sola Fidei erect pilot sites near our clients to make it financially feasible, and environmentally less risky, to dispose of waste products.

Any industrial, agricultural or other process which produces waste, is a candidate for the Sola Fidei waste management solution. Tell us about your waste problem so we can suggest an affordable solution
