Transforming resources to create value

The transition to the Circular Economy is providing unprecedented opportunities for Waste and Recycling industry who play a central role of in the transformation of waste resources into a quality secondary resource that is a replacement for primary resources.

Global recycling rates are also rising, with metal predicted to reach USD $434.55 billion by 2023. Paper will climb from USD $4.29 billion in 2017 to $5.42 billion in 2024. Plastics are also part of the story and are expected to rise from USD $25 billion in 2018 to $33.8 billion by 2023. In tandem, with this exponential growth, the recycling industry has to contend with a variety of challenges including:

  • New regulations such as Deposit Refund Schemes and Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) are leading to more collections of segregated recyclables which will increase collection costs and complexity in the short term
  • Quality specifications of recyclate are on the rise and will help recyclers to secure the best and most sustainable sales prices and outlets
  • Cost and effort of compliance with increasing regulations around processing and export are increasing

While most recycling operators have invested heavily in state of the art mechanical and physical infrastructure to transform waste into resources, it is clear that investment in IT automation has lagged this trend. Many recycling operators are automated using outdated and unconnected IT legacy systems, which are supported by manual and/or paper processes. In order to seize the opportunity of recycling, there is a better way to automate a resource transformation factory where sequential and interdependent workflows and processes can be digitalized, automated and integrated to create maximum value and efficiency.

Automate to seize the opportunities of the circular economy

Automation and digitalization provide you with the opportunity to connect and integrate your MRF processes, providing you with visibility, control and the insight to drive new efficiencies.

A modern recycling operation can be automated to the same high levels as a modern industrial factory with minimum manual and paper processes or re-keying of data into separate systems. Instead, AMCS Platform provides you with the opportunity to automate all your processes, eliminate all paper and disconnects and make collaboration and sharing of data possible across your organization.

This is all made possible by our SAAS based enterprise grade architecture that provides a modern and intuitive user interface that can be used anytime, anywhere and on any device as well as integrated portals to share data  and collaborate with partners and mobile applications for your workforce to perform specialist tasks like material inspection or cycle counting close to the source.

Plastic Recycling

Digitalising your operations

The fact that plastics recycling is an emerging sector provides companies with the opportunity to adopt new generation solutions like AMCS Platform.

Managing a plastic recycling enterprise has become increasingly complex and competitive in a global economy. Each process in the value chain hinges on another – purchasing, quality monitoring, processing, inventory management, outbound logistics, invoicing so it is essential to have an integrated solution such as the AMCS Platform.

The AMCS Platform allows you to digitalise your operations by eliminating paper and manual processes across your enterprise and by providing customers and supplier alike with self-service options to engage with you.

For example, all paper forms such as job tickets, weighbridge tickets, stock taking forms, invoices, reports can be digitalised and automatically published on the Platform portals or automatically sent via email to your customers and suppliers.

It has been refreshing to work with a business that recognizes the need for transparency and has taken the time to understand our business. We have also valued the opportunity to draw on AMCS’s significant experience in the recycling and waste sector both in the UK and internationally. Digitalization is key to Viridor realizing its ambition of a ‘building a world where nothing goes to waste’ and we look forward to continuing this journey with AMCS.
