Topolytics founder Michael Groves said: “I’m delighted that our proposition has been recognised by two titans of the tech world.

“Topolytics uses cloud technology, big data management, mapping and AI to improve the outcomes for waste producers and waste processors. This is therefore a natural fit for the range of technologies developed and deployed by Google and SAP.”

Topolytics and four other ideas are being showcased at the Google Cloud 19 conference in San Francisco.
