USE-IT Waste Beneficiation (RF) NPC wins prestigious 2019 National award for Sustainability – Inspiring solutions on our doorstep

September 9, 2019

USE-IT Waste Beneficiation (RF) NPC has received the prestigious 2019 Energy Globe National Award for Sustainability.  The awards are known as “Nature’s Nobel Prize” and winners are selected by a jury made up of members from the UN Industrial Development Organisation, the World Bank and the European Renewable Energy Council. 

 

Founder, Chris Whyte, accepted the award on behalf of USE-IT from Andreas Pfleger, Deputy Head of Advantage Austria South Africa & Commercial Attaché at the Austrian Embassy, during the IFAT Africa Trade Fair at Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg, which was held from 9 to 11 July. 

The Durban-based USE-IT is a Section 21 company that identifies waste beneficiation opportunities in the eThekwini Municipal Area and helps to divert waste from landfill and create employment in the green economy. USE-IT won the award for its flagship project, low-carbon building system development RamBrick™.  The RamBrick™ system converts waste soils and rubble from landfill into building products for all types of housing, with at least a third less carbon footprint than conventional materials.

 

With more than 182 participating countries and over 2000 project submissions annually the Energy Globe Award is today's most prestigious environmental prize worldwide. It distinguishes projects regionally, nationally and globally that conserve resources such as energy or utilize renewable or emission-free sources.  The recognition from international groups such as Energy Globe is a boost to encourage us all to continue working to see large-scale implementation of projects like RamBrick become a reality.
