Topolytics is a ‘A Smart Grid for Waste’. We aggregate data on the world’s industrial and commercial waste and use data science, machine learning and mapping to drive better commercial and environmental outcomes for this material. The waste management industry is not data driven and its business model is not fit for the demands of the ‘circular economy’. That is why Topolytics is creating a global, trusted data set on the generation, movement and fate of this material that will drive new models of waste management, recycling and recovery. Our data platform, WasteMap, ingests and qualifies data then generates powerful insights into the type and quantity of this material, where it is generated and moved for processing and disposal. WasteMap is used by waste producers to fulfil duty of care and drive waste and cost reductions. It is used by recyclers to identify feedstock and inform investments in capacity. Topolytics is an Ellen MacArthur Foundation CE100 innovator and in May 2019, won the Google Cloud and SAP Circular Economy 2030 competition. This set out to find a commercially scaleable technology that could drive the circular economy globally.
