3RZeroWaste is a sustainable waste management company working on a 360-degree waste solution. It deals with waste from solids, plastics, e-waste, construction and demolition, hazardous industrial waste, food and other waste. With 1,8 billion tons of waste gathering in landfills in India since independence and 80 million more tons being generated every year, most of which also ends up in landfils or burned, social entrepreneur and ESD consultant Shiv Challa founded 3RZeroWaste to do waste management differently.

“We want to reduce this pile of waste by reusing it as an alternative to fossil-based feedstock,” Shiv claims. In the process, 3RZeroWaste strongly contributes to the circular economy and improves the environmental footprint by saving energy and reducing CO2 emissions.

“We are also responding to the needs of consumers and brand owners who increasingly call for sustainable products. 3RZeroWaste is leading and supporting SMEs to create a Roadmap for NETZERO implementation,” states Shiv.

3RZeroWaste leverages technology in all they do, he says, “IOT devices for tracking of waste, geo spatial technology to monitor waste and blockchain for rewarding citizens for proper segregation”.

“Our NGO wing equips workers in the waste management sector with proper education and skills transfer.”
