Building Solutions for Green Construction
RecycleX, a Gujarat based startup, formed in 2020, by Abhishek Chhazed and Vedant Gandhi aims to provide innovative and sustainable solutions to the global waste pandemic by manufacturing products from plastic waste and industrial waste. We manufacture products like bricks, paver blocks, tiles, planters, benches, kerbstones and many others from plastic waste such as milk pouches, PET bottles, etc. The whole manufacturing process is carbon negative and all the products are according to the IS standards, superior quality, eco-friendly, and cheaper than similar concrete products. We have also taken a resolution to Plant a Tree for every product we sell.
We have converted around 1,00,000 plastic bottles in the previous year and plan to increase our target to 10,00,000 in 2021. We also plan to build "Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR solutions)" to provide end-to-end solutions to industries and brands.
The goal of reducing the waste problem has been taken a step further been extended to rural areas where the construction material is being used to build toilets and other community projects thereby benefiting those who have no access to a safe mode of sanitation.
This is just the beginning and we plan to go pan India to eventually make our country free of landfills.
RecycleX has also been selected for Incubation under AIC GUSEC - Atal Incubation Center, Gujarat University. The company was also chosen as one of the Top 30 Social Innovative Solutions for Youth Co: Lab India 2020. we have also been recognized by Startup India and Swachhalay which is mentored by the Prime Minister’s Office.
