Jeremy Winer

Are you concerned about the harmful effects of glyphosate and other herbicides on your health, the environment, and beneficial organisms? If so, you’re not alone. Fortunately, there’s a safer and more sustainable alternative: steam weeding.

What is Satusteam™?

Satusteam™ is a chemical-free weed control technology developed by Weedtechnics. It utilises a unique combination of saturated steam and boiling water to eliminate weeds effectively.

Beyond its safety and environmental benefits, Satusteam™ offers several advantages over traditional herbicides:

  • Targeted: Eliminates weeds precisely, minimising harm to surrounding plants and beneficial insects.
  • Effective: Controls a broad spectrum of weeds, including young and mature plants.
  • Versatile: Applicable in various settings, from small gardens to extensive fields, using handheld or tractor-mounted equipment.
  • Sustainable: Utilises a renewable resource (water) and leaves no harmful residues.
  • Cost-effective: Lowers weed management costs over time through reduced reliance on herbicides and repeat treatments.SatusteamTM- steam weeding technology of 2024

Benefits for Multiple Users:

  • Organic growers: Maintain organic certification and protect crops from harmful chemicals.
  • Schools and public parks: Ensure a safe environment for children and families without the risks associated with herbicides.
  • Municipalities, universities, and zoos: Promote environmental responsibility while effectively managing weeds in public spaces.
  • Beekeepers: Protect precious bee colonies from harmful chemicals that can harm their health and honey production.
  • Groundskeepers: Maintain pristine landscapes in an eco-friendly and responsible manner.

Additional Advantages:

  • Safe to use around people and pets.
  • No spray drift, allowing for application in windy or rainy conditions.
  • Does not contaminate groundwater.
  • Requires no protective gear like respirators or spray suits.

Building Soil Health:

Satusteam™ actually improves soil health by:

  • Rapidly destroying weeds: These weeds decompose, providing nutrients for soil organisms and promoting the development of a healthy humus layer.
  • Not harming beneficial soil organisms: Unlike some methods, Satusteam™ only targets the top layer of soil, leaving beneficial microbes, fungi, and bacteria unharmed.

Beyond Weed Control:

Satusteam machines can also be used for low-pressure, high-temperature cleaning and sanitization. This makes them ideal for removing gum, moss, biofilm, dirt, and grease from various hard surfaces.


Satusteam™ offers a responsible and effective solution for weed control, promoting a greener future. It’s a win-win for your health, the environment, and your wallet.
