The current recycling infrastructure based on the co-mingled collection system is falling out of favour due to the well-documented inefficiencies of bundling all the different types of materials together for convenience and then attempting to separate them later in the system.
The Circular Economy is an alternative to the traditional linear economy (make, use, dispose) where waste is minimised and the value of materials and resources is retained. We are developing a domestic recycling appliance that will play a key role in making the Circular Economy a reality.
Imagine a world in which the twin environmental scourges of litter and landfills ceased to scar our landscape. That world is closer than you think! We have invented the word to describe it. Recycling. But we have not yet invented the process by which we can achieve it.
The fact that the majority of what goes into your recycling bin ends up in landfill is out of your hands. Up until now you have had no alternative than to trust the system that is letting us all down. But it doesn't have to be that way.
