LET'S BE MORE INTEGRAL
We are creating
an Integrated Waste-to-resources ECosystem
for the auroville's Bioregion
To eradicate landfilling, waste dumps & burns in our neighbourhood!
We have been researching the best combination of existing and innovative technologies available in order to come up with a waste management ecosystem that would process EVERYTHING within the same facility, and that would eliminate the need of landfilling while being self-sustainable.
Our local bioregion has shown a silent but desperate need for such innovative systems, that could tackle problematic waste materials such as multilayered packagings, but would also ensure it’s own financial sustainability through the creation of value-added products from the recycled resources.
The TRASHBOT is an Automated Segregation System that separates Biodegradable from Non-biodegradable waste material such as food from plastics bags which is very common in India’s waste composition.
This is an essential step of our system which recovers a great quantity of biodegradable waste that is normally landfilled. It therefore reduces the moisture and increase the energy content of the reject waste. This makes it more efficient for the next step of the process which uses plasma gasification.
Plasma gasification is an emerging technology which can convert landfill waste into electricity and construction material.
Venvirotech has developed a process that turns organic matter, such as food waste into bioplastic pellets. This bioplastic called PHA, biodegrades in nature within 6 to 12 months and can be used for packaging, 3D printing and biomedicine.
