The Korea International
Trade Association (Chairman: Christopher Koo) successfully signed a business contract
with Oysterable, an eco-friendly startup that took part in the ‘Trade Center
Testbed’ project which has been operating since 2019.
Last year, Oysterable
installed 6 IoT disposal systems in the COEX exhibition halls for clear plastic
bottles and is in the process of PoC. When users discard clear plastic bottles
in the disposal system, they can collect points on Oysterable’s ‘Today’s
Recycling’ app, which can later be redeemed for a merchandise like a t-shirt
made of recycled plastic.
