Circular Economy Infrastructures

Circular economy at individual- and household-levels demand responsible consumption built on the principles of refusing, reusing, and re-purposing. Our focus is on rural, urban, and industrial wastes, which do not fall into these basic pathways.

To recycle, we develop innovative, environmentally-safe, commercially-viable means to collect, segregate, and reprocess the materials. Waste-to-energy is the last option in a circular economy, which yields heat and electrical energy at the cost of completely destroying the material-value. We pioneer upcycling, downcycling, and closed-loop recycling to preserve or enhance the material-value.

Our projects in circular economy focus on material and energy recovery from

  • plastic waste
  • textile waste
  • wastewater
  • grease-trapped waste
  • other urban and industrial waste streams

In addition to the development of core technologies and circular economy infrastructure, we also pioneer in the following  advanced technologies to improve efficiency and trustability of circular economy processes

  • multi-sensor data fusion
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • blockchain
