Bintix: A Waste-Tech Venture That Uses Data to Remove Ocean and Landfill Bound Plastic – Plastic waste is one of the most pressing environmental challenges of our time. According to a 2017 study, more than 8 million tons of plastic waste end up in the oceans every year, threatening marine life and ecosystems. Moreover, plastic waste also accumulates in landfills, where it takes hundreds of years to decompose, releasing harmful chemicals and greenhouse gases. How can we tackle this plastic waste challenge and create a zero-waste future?

How Bintix Works

Bintix offers a simple and effective solution that covers the entire spectrum of dry waste management. The solution consists of the following steps:

  • Collect: Bintix provides QR coded bin bags to households, which they can use to dispose of their dry waste, such as plastic, paper, metal, glass, etc. Households can schedule a weekly pick-up of their waste through the Bintix app or website, and get rewarded with points that can be redeemed for various offers and discounts.
  • Tag: Bintix uses AI/ML technologies to capture data of each bag and SKU (stock keeping unit) of waste. Bintix scans the QR code of each bag and the barcode of each item to identify the type, quantity, and quality of waste. Bintix also captures the geo-location, date, and time of each pick-up to track the waste journey.
  • Analyze: Bintix uses advanced analytics to generate valuable insights from the waste data. Bintix provides personalized dashboards to households and resident associations to help them monitor and improve their waste impact. Bintix also provides real-time consumption insights to branded product companies to help them make their products better and more sustainable. Bintix also provides localized waste and consumption trends to the public sector to help them improve public policy on waste.
  • Recycle, Repurpose, Remove: Bintix ensures that the collected waste is recycled, repurposed, or removed in an environmentally friendly manner. Bintix sends the recyclable waste to certified recyclers, who convert it into raw materials or new products. Bintix also repurposes some of the waste into useful products, such as bags, mats, coasters, etc. Bintix also removes some of the waste through incineration, which generates energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
