Purely biological manure treatment

About Bluetector

Bluetector is unique: there is no other comparable low-cost manure treatment technology in the world that can match ours, and there is no other company that has the potential to make such a lasting impact on global agriculture in the coming years as we do.

Bluetector is a Cleantech company that has developed a novel, cost-effective biological treatment process for wastewater with extremely high nitrogen loads. This includes manure and biogas digestate as well as wastewater from mobile toilet cabins. Bluetector has already been granted a patent for the BlueBox Ultra. Further applications for patents are pending.

The BlueBox Ultra was originally developed to treat the highly concentrated wastewater from mobile toilet cabins.

Bluetector AG is a privately held company with headquarters in the Technopark Lucerne in Switzerland. The engineering of our systems by highly qualified engineers as well as the production of the BlueBox is centrally managed from the canton of Lucerne in Switzerland, while we employ experienced technicians and specialized maintenance engineers on site in our main markets.

Stefan Bucher

Member of the Board of Directors

Stefan Bucher is the founder and principal owner of CORUM Asset Management in Zurich, one of the largest and most successful independent asset managers in Switzerland.

Stefan Bucher has his roots in a family of farmers who raise pigs in the canton of Lucerne and therefore knows from his own experience the problems farmers face with regards to manure.

His personal main objective is to have a Bluetector system installed as soon as possible on a farm with pig breeding in Switzerland, possibly even in the canton of Lucerne, as this is where around 30% of all pigs that are raised in Switzerland live.
