The industry

The plastic recycling industry is facing one of its most challenging decades since its beginning. New laws and regulations will raise the bar for producers and recyclers to adopt recyclates in products, single-use plastics will be phased out and taxes on virgin materials will be enacted more and more in the coming years. It is time to develop new ways of recycling to ensure a circular future because in its current state, the recycling industry will never meet the growing demands for high-quality recycled plastics nor the Sustainable Development Goals. Veridis aims to be one of the pioneers of a new era in plastic recycling, putting these goals within reach again.

Veridis is an ambitious startup that wants to make the world a better place by tackling climate change and environmental pollution. The company was founded in 2020 by an enthusiastic team of young physicists and entrepreneurs with the ambition to develop new high-impact technologies that create a better future for humanity.

Veridis is based on the ideal of positive impact through science and technology. Our founding team has been motivated to make the world more sustainable even before we started the company. Recognizing that plastic recycling is incredibly complex and challenging, they decided to combine their physics, engineering and business knowledge to develop novel tools to improve the process.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Veridis is dedicated to the United Nations sustainable development goal 12 Responsible consumption and production with our core business aiming to increase and better plastic recycling. To this end we include the following sub goals in our strategy

Sustainable management and use of natural resources
We want to close the plastic loop by making it possible for plastic recycling to be more profitable and reducing the amount of plastic waste streams that end up in landfills and/or are being burned. In the future we also aim to step into other markets, like battery recycling, to push towards a more sustainable future and circular use of natural resources.

Substantially reduce waste generation
We will aid in the reduction of plastic that ends up as waste by making recycling more profitable and hence more attractive for both consumers and companies.

Promote universal understanding of sustainable lifestyles
Our product will obtain a huge amount of data about recycling streams and might be able to detect common contaminants, ineffective waste streams and more. This information will make it possible to better understand the smart choices when it comes to waste management, sustainable material and sustainable lifestyle.

Other SDGs Veridis will contribute to are (directly or indirectly) 3. Good health and well-being, 9. Industry, innovation and infrastructure, 11. Sustainable cities and communities, 14. Life below water, 15. Life on land
