UAE based BANTgo and Verofax have collaborated to enhance e-waste collection.  The partnership seeks to galvanize the masses into responsible recycling by rewarding their endeavors with tokenized incentives.

Verofax, was awarded the GITEX Supernova Web3 and Blockchain award, introduces its innovative technology to this eco-initiative. The venture encompasses the deployment of advanced smart bins explicitly designed for e-waste collection.  These bins are equipped with a validation system to ensure accurate assessment of the electronic devices being recycled, determining their equivalence in terms of recoverable materials.

BANTgo, renowned for its expertise in the blockchain domain, steps in to fortify this eco-friendly initiative. Recognizing and endorsing the responsible recycling behavior of individuals, BANTgo offers digital blockchain certificates. These certificates, apart from serving as a testament to the individual’s eco-contribution, also act as a robust incentive, encouraging more to tread the path of responsible recycling.

The synthesis of Verofax’s product validation and BANTgo’s blockchain creates a robust mechanism. This not only facilitates transparency in e-waste recycling but also ensures that individuals are appropriately acknowledged and rewarded for their proactive environmental actions.

Siarhei Zhyltsou, CEO of BANTgo, commented on this collaboration, “The alliance between BANTgo and Verofax is not just transformative but also imperative for our times. Encouraging responsible recycling through tangible rewards sets a new standard in environmental initiatives.”

Wassim Merheby, CEO of Verofax, shared his enthusiasm, “Pairing with BANTgo is a testament to Verofax’s commitment to leverage its technology for pressing global challenges. Together, we’re paving the way for a sustainable future, where technology and eco-responsibility converge.”
