Damage to public health and quality of life –because of reasons like improper waste management, which already have technological solutions– keeps me on my feet.

Ranjith Kharvel Annepu is a Co-Founder and Curator of be Waste Wise. He is a consultant for the World Bank and the India Coordinator for Columbia University’s Global Waste-to-Energy Research and Technology (WTERT) Council. Annepu also worked as a consultant for EcoOffset and advised Sustainable WasteResources International on solid waste management. His work focuses on integrated solid waste management and his most recent publication was Observations from India’s Waste Crisis, which was republished by many newspapers and magazines. Earlier to this, two years of his research was published as Sustainable Solid Waste Management in India, which the Open Magazine described as “one of the most detailed reports yet on (Indian) urban waste”. A research blog based on this report is a recommended reading for a sustainable development course in University of Minnesota. The report and the blog were also widely cited, included as a resource in many databases and republished in the form of various abridged versions.

He holds a Master’s degree in Earth and Environmental Engineering from Columbia University and a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering. He wrote at blog.wtert.org and maintained swmindia.blogspot.com.

Results from 2016 show that we're moving towards the goal of an engaged global community faster. In 2016, we also started providing knowledge dissemination services.

Towards the end of last year, a student told us that be Waste Wise gives him access to diverse perspectives, easily. A scientist told us that our work helped his group reorient their research and provides new ideas. be Waste Wise's model of knowledge dissemination has a great potential to impact the world. The results show that we have just started scratching the surface.Read More
