How It Works

A Look under the hood

Nature's sustainable life cycles 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. The scope of the problem is far beyond the control of any one individual consumer, so a neighborhood-scale solution was needed. NextGenUrban has delivered with a deeply integrated decentralized and modular infrastructure platform for community-scale sustainable decarbonized water energy food fuel and waste services. The result is our Sustainable Lifestyle neighborhoods where consumers finally have instant and permanent access to the sustainable, zero-waste, carbon-negative 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.


Our communities have a dedicated solar farm that produces more electricity than needed, ensuring 100% renewable clean reliable and sustainable power service.


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


All sewage waste and organic solids and food waste is captured in a biodigester and converted into bio gas then distributed back to the community homes forming a carbon-negative circular 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 nature's most efficient converter of CO2 and it's incredible growth rate can increase 10 fold when CO2 from an otherwise polluting source is fed to the algae. The algae harvest provides organic food 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 carbon-negative 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-negative 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 access to a sustainable life.

That's why all the systems and all the gear required to produce carbon-negative resources are owned and operated by NextGenUrban. We provide residents all the benefits of sustainable resources under a single-point-of-contact service agreement that comes standard with every home purchase and every commercial building.
