Shweta Agarwala
Sustainability Researcher - Circular Materials and E-waste Technologies
Shweta's Introduction

I am a researcher in the sustainability sphere for technology, working around circular materials and e-waste technologies.

I am enthusiastic about creating awareness around these issues.

Countries where Shweta can help you: APAC, India, Singapore and Europe.

What brought you to sustainability?

It all started with my personal journey in technology where I was dealing with toxic materials and unsustainable technologies. I decided to switch my focus to Research for Good. I now specialize in biodegradable electronics materials specifically and life cycle assessment of devices, more precisely small 3D printed devices. It is still at research level for the time being but hopefully it can be mainstream one day.
