Waste is one of the world’s biggest problems and the only viable solution is an accelerated transition to a global circular economy.
Today, according to the OECD, only 9% of the world’s plastic has ever been recycled, with the rest ending up in landfills and incinerators. This is partly due to the high cost of manual waste sorting, but at Recycleye, we are changing that. We’re reinventing the economics of recycling for the global waste management industry through intelligent waste sorting automation robotics.
Our team is on a mission to turn the world’s waste into resource, by combining ground-breaking computer vision, machine learning and robotics technologies like never before.
