Abstract

The objective of Project Compress is to outsource waste management in high density communities to support underdeveloped infrastructure in rising populations, thus targeting large populations.By allowing trash to be efficiently dealt with in individual homes, we hope to improve waste management and sanitation in underdeveloped areas with high population densities. Utilizing the effectiveness of a human-powered trash compactor, local communities will pre-process trash which will ease the burden of trash logistics and processing. Providing trash compactors to households will incentivize proper waste management techniques which will decrease pollution while increasing sanitation. Proper trash compaction will liberate property that may have been polluted which allows land to be utilized for commercial and residential purposes, therefore boosting the economy of the environment.

This project will follow a transaction revenue stream, with particular focus on asset sale. It is a one-time investment that maintains a high automation for self sustainment. Project Compress is a unique implementation of sustainable trash compression technology that will revolutionize how countries approach infrastructure innovations. The compactor will be distributed with the assistance of the Indian Government and WasteAid, along with local plastic manufacturers to create jobs within the target economy.
