For Ramanathan Narayan- MD and CEO and founder of 4R Recycling, the act of recycling is beyond just the literal meaning. To him recycling is “mining above the ground”. Recycling to him means:

  • to keep hazardous waste away from dumping grounds, which adds to the scare of ill health.
  • To keep ground water unpolluted.
  • Help avoid air pollution due to “informal” recycling agencies.
  • Conserving energy by recycling instead of mining for metals underground.
  • Journey from product to raw material.
  • Journey towards a greener and healthier universe
