Redefining trash

Lup designs market and community-centered solutions for transforming glass waste into low-carbon products in Latin America.


Managing glass waste locally offers reliable economic opportunities for waste collectors, diverts valuable resources from landfill, and reduces GHG emissions along the recycling value chain.

What we do


Streamline the project development process for waste recycling solutions


Connect social, environmental and economic metrics to ensure viability


R&D on high-impact end-uses for recycled glass with an emphasis on commercialization

What we do

Holistic glass solutions

Lup approaches waste management through a holistic lens by carefully considering the supply chains, material type and quality, and potential buyers or end-markets for recycled products. We design or leverage waste solutions that provide innovative end-uses for key industries such as construction and agriculture in Latin America. Where possible, we establish synergies through activities that foster industrial symbiosis.

We conducted a feasibility study for the use of recycled glass as a substitute material in construction for a client in Central America. The study included evaluating the glass collection system, designing plant configurations, financial models and a framework for the lab trials to determine project viability.

Our mission is to enable the development of innovation and infrastructure that supports a circular economy.
