About Gaia EnviroTech

Powered by Innovation in Renewable Energy

Gaia EnviroTech (Gaia) is a division of Gekko Systems – a Ballarat based company leader in the development of energy efficient technologies for the mining industry.

Based in the regional city of Ballarat (VIC), Gaia was born in early 2017 from the idea that food producers, processors and manufacturers are currently facing two critical challenges: the ever increasing cost of energy required to run their operations, and effectively dealing with the high volumes of organic waste. With this in mind, we designed The Gaia biodigester.

Using outback tough materials and backed by over two decades of driving innovation in the mining industry, the team designed the first fully modular biodigester in Australia.

All Gaia’s biodigesters are designed, manufactured and factory tested at the company’s facility in Ballarat.

Gaia’s belief is that “only through embracing change together can we transform our world”.


Converting today’s waste for the benefit of the economy and environment.
