Hygiea using AI to divert waste

Hygiea is a startup led by an Arizona State University engineering graduates and graduate students. They are taking the waste out of waste management with avant-garde sorting technologies. “Smart-Sort” is an AI based sorting device that will efficiently sort waste streams into categorizes such as compost, landfill, recyclables, etc. Their aim is to use various types of technologies that will drive consumer’s to change their behaviors, educate consumers, create highly sorted waste streams, reduce contamination and eventually reduce the amount of waste overall. They were recently one of five finalists in the ASU Avnet Open and are currently in the RISN Incubator working to scale their technology.
