ReThink Waste Challenge

The ReThink Waste Challenge is an international student competition that aims to accelerate the transition towards a fossil-free society.

More than 190 students from 72 Universities in 33 countries are participating in the first edition of the ReThink Waste Challenge that started on 18 January 2023. Their goal? To come up with a business idea or a prototype that contributes to a circular biobased economy.

It could be anything from a new material made out of biomass or a new technology to extract valuable products from biomass residue, to a more efficient production process or services that bring a zero-waste future one step closer.

From January until June 2023, with the support of top experts, they will develop their idea into a solid business proposition, ready to pitch to the jury and potential investors. Curious to learn more?
