Banyan Nation has pioneered the Circular Economy in India by enabling large multinational brands to replace virgin plastic with recycled plastics in mainstream products and packaging. Banyan has long term agreements with FMCG majors such as Unilever and Reckitt Benckiser to produce and supply ~18,000 Tons of premium recycled plastic over 3 years (~$20M in value). The company is recognized for two key innovations:

• A super clean plastics washing technology that eliminates hard to remove contaminants
• A data intelligence platform that allows us to map, integrate and train informal recyclers and create a traceable, ethical supply chain to procure thousands of tons of discarded materials

Banyan is head-quartered in Hyderabad where it operates a world-class plastic recycling facility with a processing capacity of over 6,000 TPA of post-consumer plastics; where it produces near virgin grade HDPE recycled plastic from discarded plastics that are sourced from informal recyclers.

Banyan Nation has pioneered the Circular Economy in India by enabling large multinational brands to replace virgin plastic with recycled plastics in mainstream products and packaging.

The company is recognized for two key innovations:

• A super clean plastics washing technology that eliminates hard to remove contaminants
• A data intelligence platform that allows us to map, integrate and train informal recyclers and create a traceable, ethical supply chain to procure thousands of tons of discarded materials

Banyan is head-quartered in Hyderabad where it operates a world-class plastic recycling facility with a processing capacity of over 6,000 TPA of post-consumer plastics; where it produces near virgin grade HDPE recycled plastic from discarded plastics that are sourced from informal recyclers. The facility includes a proprietary plastic washing technology, top notch extrusion lines, water treatment and recycling systems, and polymer testing lab. Banyan’s proprietary plastics cleaning technology removes product and packaging contaminants such as labels, adhesive, inks, etc. from post-consumer plastics. Banyan’s recycled granules are comparable in performance to virgin HDPE plastics and have been certified by top brands and converters across India.

Banyan is a pioneer in leveraging mobile technology to map and integrate thousands of informal recyclers to source discarded plastic. The platform allows Banyan to map recyclers and also trade materials with them. In addition, the platform is independently sold to companies, municipalities and NGOs to help them map, integrate, trade materials with informal recyclers.

The mobile and cloud-based data intelligence platform, deployed across 20 cities in South India, helps the company collect crucial data on waste plastics collection and recovery by the largely informal collectors and aggregators, integrating them into a formal, responsible supply chain. The platform has also enabled the cities of Warangal and Hyderabad understand flows of solid and e-waste through their cities, helping them improve collection efficiencies and economics. Banyan’s Mappr platform is also helping large multinational company track ocean bound plastics in Chennai and International NGO track the flow of plastic in the Ganga river in Varanasi.
