What We Do


We are a solution-driven Engineering Design Team that encompasses sustainability in engineering design and principles of a circular economy.

Our projects are driven by the coolest and most cutting-edge innovations that abide by the three pillars of sustainability. Our team consists of multiple sub-teams working on a wide range of projects.


The Waste-to-Value Mapping team is building a real-time connected platform that tracks waste flow with the aim of optimal utilization and revitalization of plastics.

"UBC WasteNauts has the potential to allow students to dive deeper into relevant engineering projects... in multiple disciplines to come together to research topics, to test out ideas, and to advocate for change in putting novel ideas together."
