Three students from Grenoble INP – Ense3, UGA, have launched a project to help decontaminate Nepal’s highest mountaintops. They have developed a unique solution for handling plastic waste and set off to test it in the field.
If you’re a mountain-lover and Grenoble INP – Ense3 student that’s been made aware of environmental issues, what’s something useful you could do? Why, help clean up Everest! Such was the mindset for students Olivier Robelin, Robin Jager and Valentin Girard when they created the organisation “Tri-Haut pour l’Everest”. “We got the idea after watching the documentary Everest Green by Jean-Michel Jorda,” explains Olivier Robelin, currently on a leave of absence after his second year at Grenoble INP – Ense3 “We contacted the director to talk about our waste processing project for the region, and he loved the idea!”
