FIELD OF CONTRIBUTION
Outgreens, created in 2016 is a thriving waste-to-product business ideally positioned to be part of the solution to some of the main environmental problems facing Egypt today: reducing waste, avoiding pollution, and preventing the unnecessary use of finite natural resources. We aim to contribute to a clean world in which nothing is wasted or left behind. That’s our mission. We do this by focusing on providing comprehensive waste management solutions for organic, solid, and hazardous waste. While also trying to fight excess by displacing more-polluting forms of energy with solar energy. So far, we have incorporated agriwaste recycling since 2016, solid waste recycling, and waste-to-energy (RDF) since late 2018. We cover more ground as we evolve beyond organic recycling.
Our services are based on trial and analysis to deliver perfect solutions for your needs. Outgreens provides all its services based on the client business’s size, requirements, and environmental objectives. Our objective is to provide a realistic & sustainable solution, not just greenwashing. We analyze the data from the waste we collect and share the findings, insights, and options that help the client make informed decisions, alongside the contract draft and all the financial options for their review.
