Vikas Chhajer is the head of strategy and sustainability of Gemini Corporation.


Gemini Corporation NV was founded in Belgium in 1989 by Mr. Surendra Patawari. Gemini is one of the world’s largest circular economy market makers, engaged in the collection, recycling, segregation, sourcing & distribution of recyclable plastics, paper, metal, and rubber.

The group collects over 450,000 tonnes of recyclable plastics. With a team of 300 people, it manages annually over 2.0 million tonnes of materials from 33 offices in 27 countries. Apart from plastics, Gemini gives a second life to over 4 billion pounds of rubber, metal, and paper including 50 million tyres and 1 billion PET Bottles.

Gemini is on the Board of Directors of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste (AEPW) together with the Global CEOs of Procter & Gamble, Dow, BASF, Lyondell Basel, and ExxonMobil Chemical.

The company is also a part of the New Plastics Economy at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and has given Global commitments for plastic recycling and PCR supply. Furthermore, it is a member of the World Economic Forum’s - Global Plastic Action Partnership (GPAP).

Gemini has contributed to the European Parliament on policymaking related to the European & Indian recycling industry.

As a recent achievement, Gemini won the “Excellence in Sustainability 2020” award by the World Economic Forum. Its USA affiliate company was awarded President’s “E” award for exporting recycled material in 2019.

Gemini is now focusing on making the lives of waste-pickers better through its Indian subsidiary, Gemcorp Recycling. It is a scalable and self-sustainable model that is a perfect partnership between People, Plastic, Planet, and ultimately Profits.
