Minhoca secondary raw material exchange
Minhoca is a Norwegian-Brazilian company developing a regulated market place for secondary raw material. We do this because one company’s waste is another company’s raw material.
The world is overusing its resources, and commodity prices are rising while landfills are filling up. Valuable raw material must be used instead of wasted.
Circular business models are increasingly replacing linear ones, but it is challenging for companies to move from primary raw material to secondary raw material.
The Minhoca secondary raw material exchange ensures quality, traceability and transparency of traded goods across sectors and borders, as well as predictable prices for the secondary raw materials.
To support clients in their decision to move to secondary raw material, we will establish the Minhoca Knowledge Network of NGOs, RD&I institutions, universities and other companies.
Minhoca focuses on industrial sectors, and have started out in the marine sector, where we want to support the increased value creation in better use of rest raw material from aquaculture and fisheries. As more than 30% of the fish volume is still wasted worldwide, the potential for improvement is huge.
The plastic waste sector is another where Minhoca’s solution will contribute to increased value creation and less pollution by supporting material trading, recycling and reuse.
Minhoca is supported by Innovation Norway and Climate-KIC.
