Problem

Consumers lack an easy way to extract value from their solid waste at the source.

- No tools, data and support to recycle waste

- Have recyclable waste but finding a buyer takes too much time and money.

Waste managers pend too much time/money separating waste when they would rather be selling products.

- Have money but can’t locate high-value separated waste to buy and “resell”.

- No single view of available waste.

Solution

We automatically capture accurate GPS locations and aggregate waste data by type and location, connect waste buyers to waste sellers, create optimal schedules and routes for efficient transfer and allow P2P payments using Artificial Intelligence on a globally decentralized Blockchain.

Mission and Vision

A Zero Waste Future.

Innovation Description

Recyclebot global P2P waste recycling platform and cryptocurrency: “Add value to all your solid waste and get rewards wherever you are, whenever you want”

Consumers (individuals, households, MSMEs and large firms, NGOs, public institutions & spaces, schools, hospitals, etc.):

- More money; sell or trade all waste

- Save money; waste buyers compete for their waste

- Great job; waste managers work hard for great reviews and high-value waste.

Waste managers (recycling firms, WtE plants, waste utilities, makers, repairers, aggregators etc.)

- Save time: Less time locating and separating waste

- More money; more high-value separated waste to sell to re-cyclers

- Grow faster; great reviews + great prices = more work

Local Communities

- More green jobs; citizens manage their own waste

- More money; citizens turn trash into cash

- Grow circular; more green jobs + zero-waste = more wealth
