Businesses do not always have to use virgin raw materials and depending on techno-commercial viability and supply availability, many businesses have started sourcing Secondary Raw Materials (SRM). All Ecoware products are compostable in 90 days, as the raw materials are drawn from natural sources.

Recycling infrastructure such as Material Recovery Facilities (MRF) includes businesses that provide opportunities for waste sorting, recycling, and recovery on a scale.

Waste to Energy business has been growing despite controversies regarding its circularity and mixed experience on the ground.
