Narisrec / Binewaste
Explain your idea in details:
Our goal is to remove all electronic waste from landfills and give it a more correct treatment, taking into account our reuse and recycling process. Our activity focused on the collection, sorting, weighing, storage, dismantling, separation of waste for and generation of raw materials such as glass, plastic, aluminum, iron and integrated plates. Through our reuse process, we want to repair and reuse obsolete equipment for later sale on our digital platform in an integrated way.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Helping to reduce the amount of CO2 produced by factories by 0.5%. Helping disadvantaged communities by donating refurbished and used equipment. Angola is the third largest producer of electronic waste among the Portuguese community, 68% of the people are poor, and many do not have the availability to buy new electronic devices. 90% of companies store electronic waste in inappropriate places.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Creation of a digital platform for the purchase and sale of reconditioned and used electronics, which will allow the collection and deposit of waste. Placement of recycling bins in strategic locations for the disposal of electronic waste through the geolocation system and creation of the First Manual Dismantling Center for Electronic Waste in Angola.
