We’re in partnership with Sansodhan e-waste to work on the transparent management of e-waste
We will work together to catalyse the transition of unorganised e-waste management sector into organising their operations.
We have joined hands with Sansodhan E-Waste Exchange, a virtual e-waste aggregation platform, to build an organised E-Waste management sector. Sansodhan E-Waste Exchange is based out of Hyderabad, India and works towards minimising the air, water, and land pollution caused by mishandled e-waste.
The e-waste aggregation platform aims at creating an ecosystem around e-waste and thus transform the e-waste landscape in India. The company is currently exploring the potential of technology for waste management for the development of smart cities and states.
Eleven01 will provide the company with technological support by incorporating the blockchain technology into the e-waste ecosystem. We will help the team explore the different ways in which a blockchain-based database can make e-waste management transparent, reliable, and hassle-free.
“India generates about 2 million tonnes of e-waste every year and its mismanagement leads to hazardous environmental pollution as well as adverse health effects. To create effective control mechanisms around this problem, we need a tool that can convert the mess into an organised database, which would help us in discarding/reusing e-waste properly”, said Dr Shalini Sharma, CEO of Sansodhan E-Waste.
“Eleven01, which is already doing amazing work towards building and promoting the blockchain technology, will help us to implement this transformative technology into managing e-waste. We are looking forward to exploring different opportunities with Eleven01 and find the best solution.”, she added.
Rama Iyer, President & CTO of Eleven01, offered his insight on the reality of the problem that Sansodhan E-Waste Exchange is trying to address. “It is amazing to see the kind of concept the company has built on. Every day, new applications for the blockchain technology are being developed and with the e-waste ecosystem that is being created here, we have a use-case right in front of us. We will work with them to develop this ecosystem further,” he said.
