Our Electronic Waste is a Huge Problem
Our world is becoming increasingly technologized, yet less than 18% of our electronic waste is properly recycled. Right now, this leads to the loss of valuable resources like Rare-Earth Elements that are crucial for sustainable technology like clean energy production and storage.
With RareCycle, we harness the power of synthetic biology to reduce wastage, replace harmful mining practices and engage more people in the recycling of their e-waste!
Our mission is to empower communities to recycle their own e-waste and profit from the recovered Rare-Earth resources. We achieve this by developing cost-effective and low-barrier synthetic biology to grow and deploy genetically engineered fungal mycelium that can extract the valuable resources from e-waste.
