Sao Paulo is looking to develop solutions for waste management in the city. These include the development of: Innovative waste collection processes; New waste treatment processes; Waste as a resource.

Brazil is the 4th largest in the world waste generator in volume. About 80% of the mixed Municipal Solid Waste from Sao Paulo city is disposed of in landfills
C40 City Solutions Platform is supporting Sao Paulo to develop solutions for waste management in the city. These include the development of:
Treatment of organic waste in Sao Paulo: 6,000 tons of organic waste collected everyday
The development of the “Ecopark project”
Undifferentiated household waste collection treated through Biological Mechanical Treatment. Organic waste fraction sent for methanization and composting.
We organised a co-creation workshop in collaboration with C40 Cities in Sao Paulo on the 24- 25th October 2019. In the workshop solution providers co-created and pitched 5 solution ideas to the City of Sao Paulo. Currently the City of Sao Paulo is evaluating the ideas generated and to decide the next steps. If you want to learn more about the project or you want to contribute to this opportunity and help Sao Paulo’s waste management, join our opportunities page and online co-creation platform by clicking “join the discussion” below.
