  • The eco2Veritas AI-powered system will certify and track the plastic, leading to funding from the Flexible Plastic Fund

Article Summary:

Aldi has taken a step towards reducing plastic waste by implementing AI technology in its stores to track flexible plastic packaging collected from the public. Developed by Greenback Recycling Technologies, the eco2Veritas system will certify and track the flexible plastic, showing how it is sorted, reprocessed, and transformed into end products. This initiative not only helps Aldi in monitoring the plastic waste but also qualifies the company to receive funding from the Flexible Plastic Fund (FPF).

Luke Emery, Aldi UK packaging director, expressed the company’s commitment to tackling plastic waste and acknowledged the importance of this issue to their customers. Aldi currently collects approximately 300 tonnes of post-consumer flexible plastic packaging annually, making this AI tracking system a significant step towards more efficient and sustainable recycling practices.
