CCm Technologies
CCm's core environmental benefits:
  • Utilisation of waste streams - promoting a circular economy

  • Reduction of carbon emissions - contributing to the UK's net zero target

  • Ensuring high yields, improved soil fertility and low costs - facilitating farmers' net zero transition

CCm's impact on UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's)
  • Damaging Carbon impact of convention fertilisers (SDG15.5,13.1)

  • Broken food systems (SDG12.4,12.5,12.6,12.8,2.4)

  • Excessive Nitrogen and Phosphorous in soil and groundwater (SDG15.1,11.6,6.3)

  • Increasing N2O emissions from Ammonia volatilisation (SDG3.9,11.6)

Process inputs:


Waste CO2 comes from industrial power generation. CCm utilises this CO2 by reacting it with ammonia to form stable nitrogen which is then blended with a fibrous material that is used in the fertiliser production process. Additional CO2 stabilises volatile chemicals within the fibrous material. Stabilising these volatile chemicals improves nutrient delivery within the fertiliser pellet. CO2 can be captured from any emissions stream, high concentration or mixed flue.


Recovered Ammonia can be sourced from the waste sector, where high volumes are available in liquid streams within Water treatment, Food and Agriculture. CCm utilises CO2 to react with ammonia in order to form stable nitrogen compounds, which is then used to increase nutrient content in the fertiliser. Ammonia that has been stabilised has many benefits, increasing the growth of crops. Due to its stable form, the ammonia within CCm's fertiliser leads to reduced leaching and volatilisation.

Fibrous material

CCm uses recovered nutrient sources (food waste, sewage sludge and organic agri residues) which provides a substrate for the added nutrients within the process, further improving nutrient delivery to crops and locking additional carbon into the soil.

Technology benefits

Emissions reductions

Transform low-value waste resources into predictable, high-value products.

CCm's process captures, avoids and sequesters carbon, enabling a fertiliser production process that is climate positive. Recovered CO2 that would otherwise be emitted to the atmosphere is captured, stabilised and utilised as a valuable crop nutrient for the CCm process. Additional recovered nutrient resources are used within the process, reducing the volume of emissions compared to utilising fossil fuel based mineral nutrient alternatives. CCm reduces emissions across Scope 1, 2 & 3, with the largest proportion of emissions reduced in Scope 3. This impact is greatest within food manufacture and retail industries.

Resource Management

Recycling waste resources

CCm transforms a range of waste resources into stable and predictable, slow nutrient release organo-mineral fertiliser. The circular economy activated through CCm's process enables reduced emissions compared to conventional waste to land operations, through reduced run-off, contaminant leaching and atmospheric emissions, significantly improving soil organic carbon, water retention and microorganism families to improve the efficiency of crop nutrient delivery. The reduction of waste enabled through the CCm process provides new sustainable systems for industry and agriculture.

Sustainable systems

Future proofing current systems

CCm's stabilisation process and knowledge formulating a range of nutrient resource inputs from current industry and farm practices, significantly reduces the risk of environmentally harmful impacts which can occur through current waste to land operations. The CCm technology acts as a treatment process allowing non-waste outputs for many sectors feedstocks. The slow release CCm fertiliser allows for increased spreading windows with reduced impact from weather conditions due to a high proportion of organic fibre within the fertiliser pellet. CCm is working closely with the Environment Agency to gain non-waste status for a range of sector specific inputs to enable fertiliser product status.


Full data capture of emissions reduction and resource inputs

CCm’s online dashboard collects data from operational plants to provide full traceability of process and feedstock data, providing a detailed audit trail for regulators, policymakers and carbon verifiers. This is in order to improve the traceability of the carbon emissions being impacted through the process. CCm's dashboard acts as a quality management system, in line with ISO 9001 and provides actual operational data to produce detailed life cycle assessments for a projects carbon impact.

Intellectual Property

CCm Technologies has an extensive library of granted global patents.

There are 44 granted patents in 55 jurisdictions globally. These patents are focused on a range of innovations including the utilisation of CO2 for nitrogen production with digestates and formulation of sustainable fertilisers using a range of recovered resources.

Soil Carbon and improving health

CCm fertiliser increases soil carbon through sequestration

Improving soil health is very important as improved soil health reduces rates of erosion. Soil can be considered a non-renewable source and is eroded away at 24 billion tonnes per year. Soil is slow to regenerate and so its protection should be considered of utmost importance. CCm fertiliser sequesters organic carbon into the soil, storing it permanently for at least 20 years. Increased carbon into the soil improves soil structure, permeability, increases biodiversity within the soil and has many more benefits to the soil. This causes an overall improvement to soil health which leads to better yield production. The sequestered carbon can also generate a commercial carbon credit value which CCm currently processes through For every one tonne of CCm fertiliser, approximately 1 tonne of CO2(e) can be sequestered using CCm fertiliser.
