Zoom In: Diwama, Artificial Intelligence in Waste Management

Jun 28 2021

Diwama is introducing Artificial Intelligence into waste management to drive recycling revenues.

Diwama’s product “Vitron” is an AI-based image recognition software providing automated waste analysis for waste sorting and recycling facilities. Data is collected on waste streams and translated into actionable insights to optimize facility performance, increase both recycling rates and recyclables quality.

“We applied to the Cleanergy Accelerator Program to transform what was only an idea into a real business. We wanted to learn more about entrepreneurship and how to be agile and resilient in the face of challenges.

After 9 months in the program, we believe that as co-founders we have become better leaders and entrepreneurs. We have gained skills and knowledge in pitching, marketing, business development, sales, finance, product development, and many others. Our success is measured through the international interest, funding, and support we got for our startup from Plug and Play in Paris to Ma’an and Astrolabs in Abu Dhabi and the Global Incubator Network in Austria.
