Elevator Pitch

Binee is the new collection standard for used electronic devices. We incentivize users who give back their old device with transparency, trust, rewards. Taking back devices in Consumer Electronics Stores, we help those to fulfill the new legal requirements and to leave the place better than we found it. So our grandchildren will only learn about the concept of waste in history class.

Product

A collection container equipped with sensors to detect what is inside and connected to the cloud. The Internet of Things has reached recycling.



Why we are ecofriendly

Waste is the most complex challenge of our time. We are finding the best solutions how to turn waste into resources. Our E-Waste collection eco-impact will be increased with each device collected, reducing land use, mining activities, GHG emissions, energy use, water use.

Latest News

We are now part of the SpinLab - the HHL accelerator in Leipzig.
