An artificially intelligent optical sortation device has started sorting some of the millions of pounds of batteries collected across the U.S. by stewardship group Call2Recycle.
Innovators in the resin realm often get a bad rap for prioritizing functionality over recyclability. But according to one bioplastics executive, end-of-life is still top-of-mind for many companies developing cutting-edge materials.
A startup is using robotics, artificial intelligence and the cloud to combat recycling contamination at one of its sources: public collection bins.
A new big top has opened in the Florida panhandle, but instead of housing animals and circus performers, the building holds the latest in advanced single-stream sortation equipment.
