In the heart of Normandy, a new narrative is unfolding—one of sustainability and technological innovation. B:Bot by GreenBig, a pioneering Greentech startup founded in 2017, is not only revolutionising plastic waste management but also positioning Normandy as a hotspot for eco-conscious businesses. In a world grappling with the consequences of plastic pollution, B:Bot’s success underscores the region’s commitment to fostering sustainable development.
B:Bot’s Greentech Solution
With a staggering 460 million tonnes of plastic produced globally each year and only 11% being recycled, the need for effective waste management solutions has never been more critical. B:Bot addresses this challenge head-on by employing robotisation and artificial intelligence to create a machine that turns plastic bottles into 100% recyclable flakes. This innovative approach not only tackles the pressing issue of plastic pollution but also reflects B:Bot’s dedication to building a more sustainable future.
The Ingenuity Behind B:Bot
B:Bot’s technology-driven process is both elegant and impactful. Equipped with sensors, robots efficiently detect, and process plastic bottles brought in by conscientious individuals. Through a carefully orchestrated sequence, the bottles are crushed, separated, and transformed into reusable flakes. This closed-loop system not only promotes circular economy principles but also aligns with broader goals of ecological, energy, and digital transition.
VIALOG’s Role in GreenBig’s Success
B:Bot’s collaboration with VIALOG, a consortium of 14 companies specialising in contract manufacturing, exemplifies the region’s commitment to supporting and nurturing innovative startups.
