The first universally applicable material return scheme
that enables proper recycling
and stops leakage of waste to the environment.
AN URGENT NEED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY
Yearly 150,000,000 tons of single use packaging is produced worldwide of which 91 % ends up on landfills or in the environment - thereby wasting valuable resources and poisoning life on our fragile planet.
omniCYCLE provides a revolution in closing material flows of consumer items by enabling material return schemes and ensuring recycling based on blockchain technology without the need for expensive infrastructure.
BENEFITS FOR EVERYONE - ANYWHERE
The unique strength of this material return scheme is that it is universally applicable in both industrialised as well as in developing countries.
Through encouraging proper collection of consumers this scheme enables:
Prevention of leakage towards the environment
Proper recycling with less contamination and hence no 'downcycling'
Does not require expensive infrastructure because of the smart use of QR code stickers and smarthphones.
Enabling better working conditions for 'waste collectors' in developing countries.
UNIQUE QR CODES
We partner with the consumer good industry to introduce unique QR codes on their packaging, using their own printers/label makers or by using strong adhesive, water-resistant stickers.
On the other side we partner with collection industry to provide unique codes for collection points and recyclable bags.
These unique codes are cryptographically signed and registered by the supplier, which results in QR codes that can be read publicly, can be duplicated but are impossible to modify.
EASY TO USE WITH MOBILE APPLICATION
The OMNIapp (for consumers) and our API (for industrial automation) are at the core of tracing the position of each product in the circular usage chain, based on its unique id. Ownership from one 'stage' to another is achieved by the current owner (store/supplier/consumer/garbage collector) scanning the QR code of the following owner (recycle box/store/supplier/consumer) or by the new owner (garbage collector) scanning the QR code of the current owner (recycle box).
The consistency of the system is ensured - next to our own services serving as a proxy - through a publicly visible blockchain.
Furthermore, the OMNI app allows our users to track their deposit status, their ecological contribution over time and allows additional eco-friendly incentives, like loyalty rewards, towards its users. In addition, it can give - completely anonymised - insights in the customer behaviour for cooperating suppliers.
