Malaysian startup recognised for plastic waste reduction

Good cause: Boden hopes to encourage the public to recycle with his Klean Reverse Vending Machines.

“THE fact that, as a startup, we've made it past 200 applicants worldwide and into the finals shows recognition on the importance and urgency of resolving the plastic waste problem worldwide,” says co-founder of Klean, Datuk Mohamad Arif Abdullah.

Klean, a Malaysian-based startup, was one of the six finalists for The Liveability Challenge which aims to close the financing gap between the ideas that will make cities better and the investments that will turn their solutions into reality.
