I am an of Proyecto Calypso
With CALYPSO I want to attack the problem of poor management and logistic of waste collection. In many countries waste management is very inefficient, consequently causing big problems to the environment. For example, in Chile, up to 40% of the waste can be recycled but nowadays only the 10% is properly transformed. The lack of valorization of the waste causes a lost of about US $100M a year for the Chilean recycling ecosystem.
With CALYPSO we want to improve the process of waste collection by establishing a direct communication between the community and waste collector.
CALYPSO is a Software as a Service that will improve the recycling process in three ways:
first, by optimizing the waste collection routes that already exist via our machine learning algorithm.
Second, by increasing the quality and quantity of the waste that is collected via educational capsules embedded in CALYPSO-App.
And third, CALYPSO will provide to its clients the internationally recognised traceability re...

With CALYPSO we want to improve the process of waste collection by establishing a direct communication between the community and waste collector.
CALYPSO is a Software as a Service that will improve the recycling process in three ways:
first, by optimizing the waste collection routes that already exist via our machine learning algorithm.
Second, by increasing the quality and quantity of the waste that is collected via educational capsules embedded in CALYPSO-App.
And third, CALYPSO will provide to its clients the internationally recognised traceability reports that are required by law in a growing number of countries.
We are developing a system that is made of a Web-platform (CALYPSO-Web) and an App (CALYPSO-App). The system has different interfaces for the different user/clients where the waste collector will provide routes and the citizen will be able to subscribe and communicate the need for waste collection..
Via CALYPSO-Web the client will manage the best routes for waste collectors, the traceability reports are automatically made and the data are organized in a database suitable for data-mining.
The innovative character of CALYPSO is its global approach. CALYPSO is not just a waste collector or a database, CALYPSO is a new way to manage waste, that will involve citizens, companies and public institutions. With this sinergia CALYPSO will trace the waste since its origin to its final destination therefore contributing to the Circular Economy locally and globally .
The target market of CALYPSO are the logistics recollector, waste transformers,municipalities and companies such as Hotels, restaurants, Import-Export. At the moment we are developing CALYPSO in Chile where we are focusing on the municipalities with whom we are running pilot projects.
The revenue model of CALYPSO is a contract with the client that is a fix monthly amount per route that is managed by CALYPSO plus a commision of the total residue recollected in this routes.
