HolyGrail is a revolutionary digital technology that can enable better sorting and higher-quality recycling rates.
The demand for plastic continues to grow and, currently, only 2% of plastic packaging is kept in a closed loop. What can be done to change this?
TOMRA is here to change negative misconceptions about Polystyrene (PS) and prove that this material is not only recyclable, but incredibly valuable.
The circular economy is transforming the way we use and reuse resources, reducing waste and improving the sustainability of our planet. But what is the circular economy, and how does it work?
TOMRA explores the potential of the circular economy in helping to achieve environmental targets and how to achieve a circular economy for plastic.
High-performing EPR schemes are built on a combination of five design principles, with convenience being a fundamental pillar that most directly impacts a consumer’s role in the system.
EPR schemes ensure that companies take responsibility for the collection, sorting, and recycling of the packaging they place on the market, from start to finish.

System integrity is critical to a trusted, reliable, and effective system. Learn more about the final design principle in this series.
Analysis of EPR schemes shows that creating a trifecta of packaging targets drives resource efficiency. Read more about the second EPR design principle covered in this series: Performance.
EPR schemes have the power to advance the circular economy, but they need to be designed properly. There are five design principles of high-performing EPR schemes. The first is Circularity.
Here are five examples of circular economies that are transforming industries and already in action across the globe, including container deposit schemes for closed-loop recycling.
