Automated waste composition analysis that puts you in control of your material

The resources and waste sector is rapidly evolving, and you should be too. Through automated waste composition analysis, Greyparrot gives you the competitive edge you need to stay on top.

We are in a waste crisis

We produce over 2.1 billion tons of solid waste each year. Less than 1% is audited manually. This results in a lack of transparency and has devastating consequences:

0%

Less than 10% of all plastic has ever been recycled.

0%

Over 73% of plastic is dumped, leaked, or put into landfill

0%

95% of the value of plastic packaging material is lost to the economy.

x0

Even if we reduce / substitute 200M tons of plastic/year, we will need to triple what we recycle today

What can’t be measured can’t be optimised

Many of the challenges faced by the resources and waste sector can be solved through an understanding and use of composition data.

1 Lack of transparency

Missing data on the purity of materials leads to mistrust between buyer and seller, lawsuits and product returns

2 Operational ineffieciencies

The lack of waste composition data prevents facilities to take data-driven decisions to improve operational efficiencies and plant up-time.

3 Costly manual sampling

Challenge to meet the scale of proposed regulations. Sampling requirements are increasing x16 due to EPR, but manual audits are costly and inefficient

Moving from guesswork to data-driven decisions

When you're able to monitor and analyse waste composition at scale in your sorting facility, you'll no longer have to rely on manual spot sampling to understand the true value of your material. Digitising your waste will allow you to increase your purity and recovery rates, and prevent the mismanagement of valuable recyclables.
