Ontario ‘lab’ aims to test ideas in packaging recovery

Circular Economy LabA coalition of public and private partners have formed the Ontario Circular Economy Innovation Lab (CEIL), an effort to coordinate recycling and packaging stakeholders.

CEIL will use a process called the Sustainability Transition Lab to generate ideas, public policy recommendations, and even new products. The first such lab will be focused on printed paper and packaging: things like brochures, catalogs, magazines, take-out food packaging, and paper and plastic bags.

Brands including IKEA, Owens-Illinois and Unilever are involved, as well as representatives from municipal solid waste groups.

CEIL plans more labs over the next four years.
