OUR STORY

Lebanon, 2015. A waste crisis is near, the biggest landfill in Lebanon closed, and authorities froze. Something had to be done to prevent the incoming catastrophe. One day at a seminar that discussed solutions to the upcoming disaster, Christopher and Aya met up. They studied at the same campus, never imagining that they would work together. But because they share the same vision of a waste-free world, they teamed up and founded Diwama in 2021. With a cleantech drive, they sought ways to contribute to the urban adoption of new techniques and processes in waste management. Their first product was introduced in mid-2021 and utilized AI to help waste sorting facilities control, optimize and monetize their processes to consequently better performance. The solution enables dynamic public policy development obtained through data metrics and performance indicators. This was the first step of a thousand miles, and with their disruptive mindset, team skillset, and experience, they offer a promising contribution at the individual, corporate, and government levels to develop the waste management industry and enhance its processes.
