We Are American Peat Technology

We are a team of hardworking innovators who have unearthed the power of reed-sedge peat. Since 2003, American Peat Technology (APT) has been innovating and manufacturing value-added products made from Minnesota’s abundant natural resource. The unique and effective products we create every day have the power to transform the agricultural and water remediation industries.

About us

FREE Product Samples

Ready to see the power of peat in action? Just say the word and we’ll ship a sample of our granular products directly to you. Whether you’re looking to carry a new technology to a field crop or polish waste water for release, our engineered products offer the solution.

When clean water matters

Our water treatment line of products target contaminants of environmental concern through the use of natural peat. Reed-sedge peat has an inherent affinity for dissolved heavy metals; APTsorb and APTIVATOR capture that sorption capacity in a granular form that is easy to use. Use as a stand-alone treatment for stormwater, or as part of a treatment train for more complex water. Robust APTsorb and APTIVATOR can be used in a variety of configurations from pressurized tanks to low-cost booms and socks.

When healthy crops matter

Our BioAPT media is the industry standard for granular peat-based Rhizobia carriers. BioAPT is a proven carrier of plant-growth promoting microorganisms (PGPM) and provides a stable, durable substrate to sustain microbes even in challenging environments. In the dryland regions of North America, granular inoculants are the leading choice for pulse crop growers, and in 2015, nearly six million acres of lentils, field peas, soybeans and peanuts were treated with BioAPT-based inoculants. BioAPT is also used to carry dual formulations, mycorrhizae fungi, and Pseudomonas bacteria for oil contamination bioremediation.

Sustainable Environmental Solutions

The markets we serve want more. They want greener, more sustainable processes that will protect our environment and our way of life for years to come. American Peat Technology provides innovative solutions for today’s environmental problems. We capture and enhance the diverse qualities of natural peat through our agricultural and water remediation products.
