The #GlobalRecyclingFoundation has announced that #Tomra Sorting Recycling, the provider of innovative and cutting edge solutions for resource productivity, has become a ‘Friend of the Foundation’, as well as a sponsor for #GlobalRecyclingDay on 18 March 2019.
Tomra Sorting Recycling designs and manufactures sensor based sorting technologies for the global recycling and waste management industry. With over 5500 systems installed in 80 countries over the world, the company has a dedication to extracting high purity fractions from waste streams that maximise both yield and profits.
The theme of this year’s Global Recycling Day is ‘Recycling into the Future’, focusing on young people and innovation and aims to encourage everyone to recognise the role we can all play in better recycling practices and improving the circular economy.
Founding president of the Global Recycling Foundation, Ranjit Baxi, said: ‘We are proud to welcome Tomra as a Friend of the Foundation and a sponsor for Global Recycling Day. Our goals on getting people to think about recycling differently align perfectly with Tomra’s mission to have a ‘resource revolution’ where people rethink how they obtain, use and reuse the world’s resources.’
Dr Volker Rehrmann, head of Circular Economy at Tomra, said: ‘The Circular Economy is more in focus than ever before – regions around the world are heightening sustainability targets and driving impactful standards. Together with Tomra, the regions build a brighter future for generations to come. We are pleased to be a part of the Global Recycling Day initiative and look forward to working with the Global Recycling Foundation to make a difference.’
