The project demonstrated the potential to revolutionise waste recycling in a range of countries taking AI technology used in Europe,  and using it in the developing world.

  • Safi (formerly TrueCircle) and in-country partner MGA tested Artificial Intelligence models, used to analyse waste and recycling in Europe - in an African setting.
  • The study in Kenya achieved comparable accuracy levels and collected quality images using a mobile phone camera, critical for scaling the technology in similar countries to enable instant payment to waste collectors through AI vision systems.
  • The AI models gave accurate weight composition and detected individual contaminants, indicating its potential to revolutionise waste and recycling in a range of countries by providing reliable and transparent pricing to incentivise greater collection and better-quality waste material.
