Working with Sonoco, a global packaging provider, AMP Robotics created a new material category within its neural network specific to rigid paperboard cans—items like Pringles cans and Morton salt containers. The partnership will drive increased recycling rates for spiral wound paper canisters with steel bottoms produced by Sonoco and other manufacturers. What’s significant about this, in addition to lowering the environmental impact associated with mining for virgin materials to create new packaging, is that manufacturers are directly influencing what’s recoverable in recycling facilities and taking advantage of the ability to capture more of their specific packaging.
