CXI – Waste Away

Improving the Environment

About the Company:

In the late 1950s and early 1960s a group of farmers gathered to discuss the possibilities and advantages of using organic materials in the agricultural industry. These farmers recognized the impact of beneficial microorganisms (probiotics) in the soil and began to experiment with a process that would encourage and stimulate microbial activity in the soil. Dairy farmers, in turn, explored the possibilities of eliminating the odor and biosolids problem resulting from the concentration of manure around the milking barns. The results of their efforts and their foresight was CXI. Jim Prewitt, CEO of Landmark Nurseries, Inc., the largest wholesale grower/distributor in Texas, purchased CXI in May of 2001.

About the Solution:

CXI cultured microorganisms that thrived on waste as a food source and developed a microbial product now known as Waste Away®. Waste Away® had immediate application for improving natural decomposition of waste and minimizing odors emanating from waste lagoons, septic tanks, and the composting industry. With an increase emphasis on no-till or min-till farming, farmers need a low cost, effective way to readily break down residual crop stubble and CXI believes Waste Away® to be the solution.

An industrial grade maintenance product formulated to reduce odor and act as a digesting agent in the decomposition of a wide variety of organic wastes.


  • Designed to control odor by converting anaerobic condition into anaerobic condition resulting in odorless by-products of O2, CO2 and H2O instead of the septic odor discharged as ammonia and hydrogen sulfate.
  • Concentrated source of hydrolytic (degrading) bacteria and enzymes capable of digesting certain organic polymers, thus helping to liquefy organic accumulations.
  • Positively affects the solubility of manures, starches, and proteins by digesting these organic waste materials.
  • Environmentally safe.
  • Accelerates the decomposition process when used in composting operations.
  • Concentrated for freight savings.
  • Affordable cost.
  • Non-corrosive, non-hazardous, non-pathogenic.
