Digital Waste Innovation & Research
The purpose of this program is to enable improved data management and transparency in Greater Surabaya. Current projects include an online marketplace to improve plastic feedstock traceability and price transparency, as well as an open source map of all waste banks in Greater Surabaya. Activities of the Digital Waste Innovation Accelerator include an annual Hackathon, mentorship, workshops, and other tailored capacity development support for selected digital innovators.
On the other side, understanding waste management in a better way is a requirement for the creation of new innovation that will eventually result in the creation of more circular economy opportunities. Therefore, OPPA is partnering with leading research institutions and independent researchers to implement research initiatives in Surabaya and beyond.
