Tech for Sustainability
25/04/2018 | Manchester
Tech for Good are back, this time with 'Tech for sustainability'.
The event will follow the usual format including speakers, lightning talks and networking.
The first confirmed speaker is Tom Passmore - CEO and Co-Founder of Dsposal TALK: "Misconception One: The Circular Economy is just recycling on steroids"
"Dsposal is new startup looking to revolutionise the waste industry by using technology to connect waste producers to licensed waste facilities with a vision to facilitate the move towards a circular economy by reframing what we throw out as valuable resources, not just junk. A reluctant entrepreneur with a huge drive to solve problems and try to
leave the world a bit better than he found it.
There’s a misconception that a circular economy is just more efficient recycling or waste management. Would we really need ‘circular economy’ as a term if all we were talking about was just materials recovery? No, it’s so much more than that. But how can a waste technology startup claim
to facilitate the move towards a circular economy when it’s born out of an industry that, by its very nature, will always be on the outside of it?"
