DESIGN FOR RECYCLING
FundWaste is an innovative startup with a vision to enable businesses and organisations to generate revenue from waste. When we met in 2019 FundWaste needed a partner that would design with a deep understanding of materials suitable for recycling whilst understanding the technology behind the functionality that would help customers 'see and smell the state of their recycling' remotely. Our design enables the production of a unit from post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics, whilst ensuring it is still suitable for effective shredding and reuse at end of life.
Revenue from waste
Using machine learning and AI, users can stream images and ‘smell' waste remotely and in real time.
The FundWaste sensor fits in or over a bin to detect contamination, before it impacts the value of contents, ie: food in with cardboard.
A camera and sensors alert users to the need for a collection, avoiding costly pickups and disrupting the current recycling and waste streams. The data enables businesses, schools and organisations to reduce costs and generating revenue from waste.
