Business Description                                                                   

 
The business provides an easy way for universities to recoup space, generate revenue and prevent waste of their unwanted equipment. They collect, store and sell unwanted items from universities to their network of specialist business customers and then return a profit share back to the university. The scheme helps to tackle natural resource challenges by improving sustainability of the scientific industry and it will prevent an estimated 201.6 tonnes of useable equipment going to disposal by year three. The business recently acquired 300 chairs headed for disposal and sold them on, resulting in the prevention of four tonnes of waste, reducing CO2 by over 30,000kg.
