How It Works

A Look under the hood

Nature's sustainable life systems are incredibly complex and yet so vital to all life on earth. It's urgent for humans to fit into these systems if we are to survive, but the dysfunctional methods employed in the past are killing the planet.  People everywhere desire to fix this, but the obsolete systems providing our most critical resources of water energy food and fuel are well beyond the scope and control of the individual consumer to address on their own. A solution was needed, and NextGenUrban's sustainable resource engineers have delivered. 

NextGenUrban engineered a deeply integrated decentralized modular infrastructure platform combining renewable energy, with battery storage, a private electricity micro grid, organic waste-to-value systems, closed-loop water cycle with on-site water purification and grey water treatment,  advanced regenerative organic food farming, on-site algae-based fertilizer and animal feed production, and solid-waste-to-value recovery technology.  

The result is our Sustainable Lifestyles as a Service offering that eliminates the challenges consumers face when trying to live a sustainable life by providing the hassle-free zero-waste carbon-positive lifestyle they desire.


Our neighborhoods feature a closed loop self contained water systems requiring no external connections, ensuring a permanent safe and secure source of purified water.


A professionally run regenerative organic farm is an integral part of each neighborhood, ensuring residents a local fresh abundant supply of farm-to-fork produce.


All sewage waste and organic solids are captured in a biodigester and converted into bio gas then distributed back to the community homes forming a net positive loop.


All the data and communication needs within the community are achieved through our private downlink and redundant ISP connections via cable and satellite feeds.


Algae is earth's most efficient atmospheric CO2 converter. It's growth rate increases 10X when CO2 from polluting neighbors is fed to our algae to produce organic nutrients for human consumption, crop fertilizer and animal feed. 

Sewage to Value

We divert all toilet water into a biodigester using a dedicated plumbing system separate from all other water flows. Values produced include biogas and high grade fertilizer. The challenge of environmentally safe disposal is permanently solved via a net positive loop.

Food Waste to Value

All food waste, farm waste, restaurant and household garbage disposal waste is collected multiple times per day then prepared for processing in an advanced multi-stage digester to produce additional grid-quality carbon positive cooking fuel, and organic fertilizer.

Solid Waste To Value

All trash is gathered at the commercial and household levels then separated at our own facility prior to being; a) upcycled as a key ingredient in a cementitious construction material, b) used in our waste to energy conversion process, c) sold to a 3rd party.


Sustainable Lifestyles as a service

Consumers simply want to be sustainable without having to figure it all out for themselves. People desire instant hassle-free access to a sustainable life.

That's why all the systems and all the gear required by our neighborhoods are owned and operated by NextGenUrban. We provide residents all the benefits under a single-point-of-contact service agreement that comes standard with every home purchase.

Residents receive all the benefits without any of the headaches associated with things like solar panels, battery packs, water purifiers, grey water systems, smart meters, and recycling programs.

And because there is NO lasting sustainable solution without both sustainable resources AND sustainable family economics, NextGenUrban bakes-in the option for each household to build their family wealth over time through a minority equity stake in the renewable resources and neighborhood infrastructure.
