The business software that’s changing the way we manage waste and recycling.
Industry: Waste Management | Retail
BioEx Tech is a revolutionary platform designed to promote traceability and corporate sustainability within the recycling industry. The business provides software that streamlines waste operations and provides real-time reporting across the supply chain, helping businesses turn their waste into worth.
BioEx Tech is a cashless point of sales system that funnels recyclable waste up the value chain, providing sustainable income to wastepreneurs (informal waste collectors) and an increased supply to aggregators upstream. The software provides businesses with insight into material sources, includes organisational reporting and reduces operational spend.

Project Scope: Product Design | Software Development
Waste collectors operate throughout the streets of African cities and sell their inventory at buy-back centers (BBCs) for on-demand cash. This activity often leaves BBC’s and collectors vulnerable to theft and robbery and subjects them to instances of fraud. This largely informal industry also traditionally does not have access to concrete data on waste distribution across the country, and as a result data on recycling efforts is largely miscalculated. To solve this problem, we developed a desktop point of sales system with biometric access that enables waste collectors to store earned money and withdraw cash via a mobile money facility, preventing theft and fraud, as well as providing a dignified source of income. The software also includes a full management portal for franchisees that facilitates cash and inventory management, offering sales analytics across the value chain.
