What problem does your business address?

1 billion people live in "inadequate" shelters globally. 1 trillion micro-plastic particles in our oceans and by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish. In Egypt, we imported 300 Million dollar worth of plastic waste in 2016 and 70% of the plastic waste doesn't get recycled. Egypt suffers from unorganized plastic waste collection, 60% of the industry isn't official and lack of proper communication channels between industry's stakeholders.

What solution do you bring to this issue?

We build low initial capital mini-factories that are equipped with plastic recycling machines that enable shredding processing of plastic waste. Our integrated washing-drying designed and compression machines enable us to produce high quality PET flakes and build plastic composite roof tops and cladding tiles. We also make smart compacting plastic waste bins and use of IOT to develop smart collection system.

We see opportunity in plastic waste in rural areas and unemployed youth Make decentralized plastic recycling mini-factories produce high quality washed PET flakes and use HDPE flakes to produce composite plastic tiles to build roofs and use them as cladding to empower unemployed youth in their own communities to build roofs. Additionally, we offer a smart collection model of plastic waste through plastic waste smart bins making and an online application that connects all stakeholders involved in the process, enabling us to create vibrant decentralized supply chain network. Besides, we educate rural areas communities about plastic recycling processes, benefits and problems.
