Edinburgh-based waste analytics company Topolytics has been chosen by Google and SAP as one of the top five global circular economy technologies.

Topolytics beat off competition of more than 200 applications from around the world to become one of the best revenue generating ideas in the Circular Economy 2030 Contest.

Organised by Google and SAP, the contest looked at commercial concepts which could be scaled globally to help design out waste and pollution and keep products and materials in use.

Topolytics proposed expanding the scale and scope of its existing WasteMap data platform which tracks the system of movements of waste and by-products.

This means its much easier to spot opportunities to reduce the impact of waste and keep materials in the economy for longer.

Michael Groves, Topolytics founder, said: “Topolytics uses cloud technology, big data management, mapping and AI to improve the outcomes for waste producers and waste processors. This is therefore a natural fit for the range of technologies developed and deployed by Google and SAP."

Topolytics and the other four ideas were showcased at the Google Cloud 19 conference in San Francisco this week.

They will now be given the chance to present to a panel of judges from United Nations, WWF, Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data and senior representatives of both Google and SAP.
