Sustainability

We care about the environment, and that’s why we are using your old aligners for good.

Australia’s first Clear Aligner company recycling your old aligners, into renewable energy sources.

We have partnered with Veolia and ACEwaste to reduce the number of clear aligners from reaching landfill.

Veolia and ACEwaste are Australian owned companies, processing materials to generate renewable energy sources instead of sending them to landfill.

We collect every patients old clear aligners, ACEwaste transport them to be incinerated at one of Australia’s first incineration depot. This process produces 24x less greenhouse gas emissions than any other disposal method and is leading the way of waste-disposal throughout Australia.

The incinerator reaches temperatures between 800° to 1250° Celsius, run entirely by the heat energy reused from the waste disposal process. The heat generated from the destruction process is then used to create energy sources.

Where do my aligners go?

Once your aligners reach Bitesoft HQ, they are stored securely in a clinical waste bin collected by Veolia. Your aligners are transported to a thermal treatment facility in Brisbane.

Your aligners are incinerated - generating heat from the destruction process which is then used to create energy.

Sustainability FAQ’s

The facility is located in Brisbane, Queensland.

Using waste as a fuel source is almost as powerful as coal. Waste = 28M per KG, Coal = 32M per KG.

Nope! High temperature thermal incineration leaves no trace, residue or waste (that would have otherwise gone to landfill!)

Yep! The facility is run off the energy generated from the waste incineration process. Using low emission technologies, the treatment plant surpasses environmental standards, producing 24x less greenhouse gas emissions than standard landfill operations.
