The Hong Kong Installation


With the support of the Dutch Enterprise Agency and the Dutch Consul General in Hong Kong, The Waste Transformers recently explored the feasibility of placing an installation in Hong Kong. With success. We are currently realising our first installation in the city – Kowloon side!

“Hong Kong is the city of food lovers. This city is also turning its waste into a driver of positive change!”

The Holland Pavilion at the Asia World Eco Expo 2015 is a place where key stakeholders in waste management in Hong Kong met to discuss next steps.

Our CEO, Lara van Druten, was invited by the Hong Kong Recycling Fund, to present our vision at their launch. Take a look at her presentation here.

In order to ensure the widespread transformation of Africa’s waste into much needed energy, water and recovered resources, the Waste Transformers has initiated an independent Fund that enables local entrepreneurs to tackle the issues head-on. Recently, The Waste Transformers partnered with three top talents, Fabian Roobeek, Urara Kamiya and Porus Jungalwalla, MBA candidates at IESE Business School in Spain, in order to model, structure and de-risk the Fund.

Their result was entered into the “Morgan Stanley Sustainable Investment Challenge”, a competition, hosted in Hong Kong, aimed at finding the best, global, impact investment solutions for 21st century challenges.
