Raw Materials

245 million tons of virgin plastics are produced every year. About 25% of good product is rejected or sent back into the system for rework because of false rejection or defects. TOMRA technology reduces false rejections to fewer than 2%.

*This means that 56 million tons of in-spec plastics don't need rework, significantly reducing energy consumption in the process.
