I am an of The Waste Traceability Project
Do you know where your trash ends up? 78% of U.S. waste is exported to developing countries, where 400,000 to 1 million people die each year due to diseases related to mismanaged waste. U.S. loses 40 billion dollars annually from waste leakage. Problem? No fool-proof infrastructure exists to monitor and track the flow of waste from generation to treatment/disposal. Simply, we cannot manage what we cannot measure. Our intervention? A blockchain-enabled platform that connects stakeholders in the waste value chain to track the flow of waste. Waste data like location and quantity of waste are recorded in real-time by connecting equipment like trucks to the Blockchain using IoT. Transparency and accountability created by tracking waste leads to maximum waste recovery and proper waste disposal....
