The project aims to launch the WAAM NEO RECYCLER waste sorter, which is characterized by innovative technical solutions and an innovative idea to encourage consumers to deposit waste. The sorter will allow you to exchange used packaging for virtual currency, which in turn can be used in the virtual world (in games for mobile devices) or in the real world (e.g. discount coupons for purchases).
The aim of the project is to develop the startup's business activity in the Lublin province based on the innovative WAAM NEO RECYCLER waste sorter, combining technically advanced solutions with a unique marketing approach, based on combining waste sorting with broadly understood entertainment. The new product is the result of research and development work carried out based on subsidy granted under Sub-measure 1.1.1 of the OP EP, and the implemented business model was developed during the incubation phase of the project with the support of the Eastern Business Accelerator.
The Project will result in the launch of a new waste sorter on the Polish market and additional services provided for its use, the Company's co-responsibility for the growing market demand related to the planned introduction of a deposit system in Poland and increasing public interest in effective waste management.
