Bath Climathon: Design a system to track electrical waste
The Bath Climathon is a 2-day event to co-design a system that tracks electrical products from the point of manufacturing, through retail and consumption to recycling and reuse. There will be prizes!
Recycling facilities in Bath are straining. Better information about electrical waste could take some of the pressure off and help improve the recycling infrastructure.
When it comes to electrical waste, there’s a disconnect between information about manufacturers, retailers and consumers and information captured at the point of recycling collection.
The Bath Climathon is a great opportunity to help improve important information about recycling in the area.
There’s a big problem with recycling electrical goods: poor data.
Imagine if you could help crack that?
You would dramatically improve people’s understanding of product usage and longevity, accuracy of information about recycling and evidence to support its merits.
The Bath Climathon is an exciting opportunity to work alongside entrepreneurs, students, professionals and developers on an innovative, technological solution that uses apps and tracking data to improve the way we use and dispose of electrical items.
You’ll be collaboratively racking brains to co-design a system that tracks electrical products from the point of manufacturing, through retail and consumption to recycling and reuse.
It’s a great opportunity to use your skills and collaborate on an environmentally useful project.
