A well-designed package isn’t headed for the landfill. Considering the recovery infrastructure of both today and tomorrow, we help the packaging value chain find solutions for a package’s end-of-life. This includes aligning with next-level mechanical recycling technologies like enhanced sortation equipment, AI, and robotics; as well as navigating the many technologies of chemical (also known as advanced or molecular) recycling.
