Riverrecycle Oy and Practical Action seek to transform the lives of informal waste workers by creating a new market for a stream of plastic waste that currently has no commercial value. The project introduces pyrolysis technology to the most polluted points of the Padma River in Bangladesh. It will integrate waste pickers into a plastic collection and processing workstream, creating new jobs, improving working conditions, and creating commercial value out of plastic waste. We are currently developing our Pyro site in Faridpur.
