    Company Description
    With our technical partners in Japan, we are ready for a pilot test on carbonizing food waste mixed with plastic (up to 10%). This can be applied for discarded plastic and uneaten food of the airline cabin. Huge amounts of food waste and plastic end up in landfills or incinerated. Problem: Food waste is often mixed with plastic waste and it is quite difficult to separate. If you incinerate them, you need high temperature, or dioxin, tar and high GHG emissions will be made. Huge recycling facilities are along with high CAPEX and OPEX due to high temperature and their centralized systems. Products: We have two types of catalysts: “Kasumi” is to carbonize mixture of food waste (90% or more) and plastic waste (up to 10%) on site at a lower temperature than competitors. “Plastalyst” is to decompose plastics quite efficiently on site from polymer to monomer at lower temperature and pressure than competitors.

We focus our research on recycling multi-layered plastic (sachet) waste. After one and a half years, in November 2019, we launched our first product, Rebricks Pavers. We focus on recycling sachet because we found that scavengers, private waste collectors, and regional waste banks in Jabodetabek don’t collect or sell sachets waste; it has no economic value. Sachet waste ends up in incinerators, landfill, or polluting environment. Our first product, Rebricks Pavers recycles sachet. Our pavers have undergone pressure power tests in B4T of The Ministry of Industry. Rebricks Pavers have 250kg/cm2 pressure power; it fits type B criteria in Indonesia National Standard (SNI 03-0691-1996). We produce up to 100 m2/day. In 100 m2 of pavers, we recycle around 88.000 sachet waste.

Ventilation is an enormous financial burden on commercial building owners and operators, especially as organizations like the CDC encourage buildings to be over-ventilated to maintain good indoor air quality. State of the art variable air ventilation systems track building occupancy, correlating with CO2 and pathogen buildup, and increase ventilation during the peak hours of the day when electricity prices are highest. At Carbon Reform, we have created a smart appliance which will capture CO2, with drop-in filters for other harmful pollutants like VOCs, human bioeffluents, and viruses, and allow building owners to decrease their ventilation rates and save energy. The device captures and sequesters the CO2, allowing our customers to take advantage of carbon credits and work towards their sustainability goals.

Rather than building a new collection system from scratch, we decided to leverage the existing informal collection system, that after extensive research, proved to be more effective than formal waste collection. It is through these informal workers, that rePATRN is looking to procure 900 tonnes of PET a month to feed West Africas first food grade PET recycling plant. The journey to the recycling plant is divided into three phases. In phase 1, the current phase, we are rebuilding our supply network after it collapsed post-COVID. In this phase the entire volume that is procured is sorted by color, separated from contaminants, baled and exported to Europe for recycling. There the material is used for food grade applications, textiles and packaging straps. Once we get back above the levels of September 2019 (857 tonnes), phase 2 will be initiated. Here we will evaluate where the new plant should be situated, what type of building we will need to fulfil our needs and what supplier of recycling machinery to choose to ensure highest quality pellets. Phase 3 will see the execution of phase 2.

  • ecoins Logo
    ecoins

    Company Description
    Ecoins tackles the low recycling rates in Latin America by addressing the challenges experienced by three main stakeholders: • Collection centers: By 2018 only 4.5% of waste in Latin America is recycled, in large part due to the fact that most waste management systems still lack the capacity to collect recoverable waste separately. • Producers: Extended producer responsibility (EPR) is starting to gain traction in LATAM, and companies are taking significant steps to recover the materials they put into the market and use recyclable materials in their packaging (eg. Pepsico, Nestlé). However, they are facing collection bottlenecks. • Consumers: They are progressively more aware of the need to do responsible consumption. But because municipal waste collection / management systems haven't shown leadership in recycling, many citizens willing to recycle lack the basic knowledge, means or incentives to do so. Through an online platform (app + web) as well as communication and educational campaigns, ecoins incentivizes the consumer to separate waste and take it to existing community or municipal collection centers, rewarding them with the ecoins currency which can be exchanged for discounts and promotions from partners.

    Bintix brings together two seemingly separate problems/markets- waste management and Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) marketing. Problems plaguing both sectors are solved by Bintix in one stroke. Bintix generates consumer consumption data from waste thereby making the value of the plastics (low/high) irrelevant. This removes systemic collection bias and ensures that every plastic matters and is collected - preventing plastics from entering the water bodies right at source. Valuable data from waste helps avert FMCG companies from making inaccurate/imprecise marketing decisions due to current data paucity/unreliability in India and abroad. Bintix has completed Proof of Concept with Unilever, L'Oréal, Kellogg's, Godrej, J&J and others to establish data product and has scaled up operations to 6 cities across India to obtain Pan-India data. Revenue from data on top of the revenue from plastic recycling/service makes the model sustainable and scalable globally. Novel value to waste!

    We developed a microbial cocktail that degrades, metabolises and mineralizes fossil based plastics. Our process is applicable to all sorts of single-use plastics (PET, PP, LDPE, HDPE, PS, CPE, EVA -all tested) and can operate under suboptimal conditions. we have tested these plastics separately and mixed in together as well. The listed plastics are post-consumer waste plastics: colored, clear, sterilized and plastics with food debris on them. This method not only solves the plastic issue but also generates valuable end-products: bioplastics and biogas. With these, our aim is to create a circular, thus more sustainable economy. The process itself can be described as follows: we take a blend of hydrocarbon based plastics, put them in a batch with the bacteria, our minimal essential media and water. Afterwards in about two days we can macroscopically confirm the beginning of the degradation process. Complete degradation of the polymers will take about two months.

    We are an ambitious start-up, aiming for a significant improvement of the quality control in the plastic recycling industry. We are developing new analytical technologies to improve material property characterization of plastics and complex materials. Currently, we are realizing our Proof-of-Concept, and aim for pilots later this year. Therefor, we are actively searching for partners that can help us in this journey. Conventional DSC devices are highly accurate and process all types (and colours) of plastics but can only process samples of approximately five milligrammes of plastic flakes per scan (about 1-2 flakes). With an average batch of plastic (one big-bag) weighing one tonne (1000 kg), a quality scan of a mere five milligrammes is not representative nor reliable to assess the quality of such batches. In order to make analyses reliable and scalable, our MADSCAN device will be able to provide samples for up to 500 grammes of plastic per scan, whilst maintaining the same level of accuracy (99%) and plastic range. This increases the analysis capacity by a factor of 100.000 per scan without a decrease in accuracy or applicability.

    Impact Recycling has developed a breakthrough plastic recycling technology which separates the components of post-consumer, mixed plastic waste to recover two consistent streams of plastic; polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), each with a 98% purity. Our water based, density separation process is known as BOSS (Baffled Oscillation Separation System). The purity of the recycled PE & PP produced by BOSS ensures a high value product to meet the demand from the plastic moulding industry. BOSS recycles the hard to recycle plastics left behind by waste companies and is a driver of significant quantities of plastic away from landfill and incineration. The mixed feedstock we process makes up 60% of the plastic sent to landfill or incineration in the EU. Existing solutions either cannot technically separate this plastic or do so in an economically unviable way. BOSS technology is also colour agnostic, allowing effective separation of black material not possible with existing technologies

Blueprints will be available online for free so that everyone can have access to them freely. To promote sustainable practices and technologies, Plastic Odyssey will embark on a 3-year expedition, +30 stopovers, 40,000 nautical miles sailed to study local cultures, needs and use of plastics and initiate the building of small local recycling units and waste reduction initiatives. We have financial partnerships with L’Occitane en Provence, Clarins, Matmut, and Groupe Crédit Agricole.
  • Recycleye Logo
    Recycleye

    Company Description
    Current waste sorting infrastructure relies on huge facilities far outside city centers that still depend heavily on expensive manual picking (exposing workers to health hazards). Spun-out from academia, Recycleye developed an ultra-low-cost computer vision sensor capable of classifying all items in waste streams by material type and brand (costing <£300 vs traditionally used NIR sensors that cost >£40k and only detect plastics) – it is continuously being improved through our active partnership with Microsoft and the Imperial Data Science Institute. The ‘material passport’ logs generated will enable waste pickers/traders/facility managers to understand levels of contamination (and place an exact value on each ton of recycled plastic – turning waste into an easily tradable commodity). By leveraging this with affordable robotics the company is working with partners to launch an autonomous low-cost sorting solution that is unlocking the value-add behind decentralized sorting.
  • Circularise Logo

    Intermix Performance Materials

    Company Description
    Our polymer additive enables the valorization of mixed plastics at low cost producing a high quality alloy. Polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE) account for about 2/3 of all plastics in post-consumer waste. Due to their different structures, they are not miscible, resulting in plastic mixtures with unacceptably poor strength. One way to create higher quality recycled materials is to perform careful manual separation, but this is expensive and the separated materials still exhibit performance that is inferior to pure PP and PE unless separation is near perfect. Intermix has developed a polymer additive that when added to a stream of mixed PP and PE enables these two polymers to be combined, yielding a polymer alloy that is mechanically comparable to pure PE and PP samples. This obviates laborious and expensive sorting. The polymer additive is particularly potent - as little as 0.5 wt% effectively compatibilizes mixtures with as much as 30% PP contamination.
