Building the Online Mine

The industries powering our society are taking important steps from linear supply chains with “centralised” mines where one single company owns that asset, to “decentralised” mines where countless of end-of-life waste owners collectively own the assets.

Circularity is all about efficient collection and sorting (ask anyone at a recycling company). Collection is all about creating the right incentives to the waste owners. As waste becomes assets, together with legislation, those incentives all about are trading.

Cling is digitising the trading of waste batteries and mapping their critical raw materials. We call this intricate map the Online Mine.

In short, Cling aims to bring 3 core values to the market:

  • Reduced market friction by connecting industry players and setting up terms that distributes the risks across multiple participants.
  • Increased transparency by tracking and tracing where end-of-life batteries are, and where they go. Future-compatible with any battery passport regulations.
  • Reduced logistics costs by effectively clustering and consolidating the fragmented supply.
