Transforming Expired Fire Extinguishing Powder into Sustainable Growth.

Our Story

The Phos Cycle objective is the recovery of valuable raw materials found in exhausted fire-extinguishing powder via an eco-innovative and patented process.

By law, fire extinguishers must be replaced every 3-5 years. Everything is safely recycled or disposed of aside from the ABC powder which is found in 50% of fire extinguishers globally.

Phos Cycle has pioneered a patented process to up-cycle the expired ABC powder to recover Phosphates and Sulfates, a valuable component used in the textiles, composites and fertilizer industries.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be a leading, innovative recycling company, positively impacting our planet and people’s lives.

Our Mission

Our mission is to eradicate the waste product being sent to landfills or illegally dumped across the world. 

Meet the Team

Through extensive research and development, we have designed the process to turn expired ABC powder from fire extinguishers to produce a clean fertilizer.
