Platform scales up tools to digitize recycling sector

Colin Staub writes in Plastics Recycling Update about a platform that is looking to scale up plastic recycling.

The C3 Take
  • Matium has commercially launched a platform that digitizes many aspects of the plastics recycling trading business, connecting buyers and sellers like a social network.
  • Beyond facilitating transactions, Matium’s platform provides data reporting tools that will be crucial as extended producer responsibility (EPR) regulations emerge requiring more data collection.
  • Matium’s platform aims to create an anonymized transaction ledger providing insights on material supply and demand to help optimize recycling systems and supply chains.
  • While currently focused on plastics, the company plans to expand to other recycled commodity materials over time.
