The Solution

Based in Mumbai, this project addresses plastic waste entering the ocean via the Mithi River. The project focuses on both the collection and recycling of plastics. An innovative collection system automatically retrieves plastics from the river and is designed to withstand heavy periods of rain during the monsoon season. Once collected, plastics are sorted for mechanical or chemical recycling before being reprocessed into new marketable goods. 


The Impact

By providing a sustainable river-cleaning system and facilitating plastic recycling, this project has a number of environmental and social benefits. As plastics are prevented from entering the ocean, marine life is protected from the implications of waste. Improved waste management means quality of life is improved for local communities living along the Mithi river banks. Additionally, recycling plastics into reusable products adds value to 'waste', a crucial step in the transition towards a circular plastic economy.
