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:
Less than 10% of all plastic has ever been recycled.
Over 73% of plastic is dumped, leaked, or put into landfill
95% of the value of plastic packaging material is lost to the economy.
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
2 Operational inefficiencies
3 Costly manual sampling
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.
