As many of us already know, the amount of pollution within our oceans and environment has been increasing steadily for the past century. Whether its a simple plastic cup, an old TV, or a mobile phone, all of it is sent to a landfill once we dispose off the item. However, since these objects are non-biodegradable, they contribute to toxic gas emissions, soil contamination for years on end.
At this point, it should also be mentioned that, according to a UN report from 2016; most of the world’s countries are “struggling to deal” with their waste generation problems. Landfills, such as the as the ones in Mexico, Brazil, China have been statistically shown to receive more than ten thousand tonnes of garbage refuse on a daily basis.
Thus, though the use of Recereum, environmentally conscious citizens have the ability to “sort out their garbage properly”, thereby reducing the cost of waste disposal, and increasing the amount of recyclable materials in the world.
Simply put, Recereum can be thought of as a blockchain-based platform that has been designed for “turning waste and recyclables into real value assets”.
More About Recereum
Recycling has become a major global phenomenon within the past couple of decades, especially after many governments took initiates to educate householders about the advantages of such actions.
Statistically speaking, studies released by the Bureau of International Recycling (BIR) have shown that today more than five hundred million tonnes of waste is recycled every year. Not only that, the recycling industry today employs more than 1.5 million people (and produces an annual turnover of $560 million).
Recereum is a “crypto based recycling platform” that is based entirely within the blockchain. It has been designed to help “individual householders” connect with “waste retrieval companies”, so as to help both parties involved increase their monetary gains from each individual transaction.
