NSRCEL wins big at India Circular Economy Forum 2023

NSRCEL-incubated start-ups WITHOUT, Tadpole Projects and Baeru won the ‘Aspiring Start-up Awards’ at the ‘India Circular Economy Forum 2023 (ICEF 2023)’, hosted by the International Council for Circular Economy (ICCE).

WITHOUT is a venture from Impact Orbit’s Circular Economy Incubation Program. This venture makes recycled sunglasses using chips packets (a first across the world), a material that is often considered tough to recycle.

Tadpole Projects, from the Sustainable Mobility Incubation Program, has successfully retrofitted vintage ICE vehicles, premium Gypsy for the Indian army and has also designed electric cranes, resulting in a significant reduction of 3.5 g/km per vehicle in carbon emissions and a high degree of fuel savings for the year, while also reviving the worthiness of vintage vehicles and reducing scrap.

Baeru, a venture from Impact Orbit, aims at making circularity all the more inclusive through a three-pronged approach that looks towards encouraging India’s coastal communities to be active voices in the global mission of Climate Action.
