"The investment will help Blue Planet expand its products and services, and provide solutions for sustainable waste management," Madhujeet Chimni, co-founder at Blue Planet, said in an interview with VC Circle.
As per the company's statement, Asia is estimated to account for half of the globes bourgeoisie consumption by the cessation of 2030 and handling solid waste products like organic waste and plastic is going to become the main problem.
"The company aims to eliminate waste from business activities, downstream consumption, and waste handling processes," Chimni added.
