Who are we?
We are engineering consultants, based in Durban, South Africa. We specialise in technology research and development, feasibility studies, strategy development and training. In addition, a key focus area of our company is waste management. Subsequently, our aim is to help you to join the circular economy. To do this, we aim to change the way that you and your company view waste.
We provide waste management consulting services both within South Africa and internationally. Our desire is to assist South African companies to manage the waste that they produce in an environmentally friendly, sustainable and legal manner. However, we can also help companies from around the world to better manage their waste through our many services.
RareEarth Recycling was formed in 2019. This was as a result of the great need for improved waste management practices in South Africa. This need for improved waste management practices is because there are few engineering consultants working in this area. This lack of expertise was noticeable both in South Africa and internationally, despite waste management being key in joining the circular economy. So, without waste management engineering expertise, it becomes difficult to improve. For example, it is difficult to change the waste management practices that already exist. Because of the lack of expertise, there has been a lack of uptake of new technologies. These new technologies could, for example, make waste management more effective and efficient. Therefore, with effective guidance in the area of waste management, it will be possible to improve waste management capabilities. Subsequently, this will drive a more inclusive circular economy.
