Quantix recently joined the Alliance to End Plastic Waste, a non-profit organization that unites government, companies, and communities with the shared goal of enhancing waste management capacity and capability by improving collection, sorting, processing, and recycling systems, especially in underserved regions.
Quantix is the 31st North American member to join the Alliance, which has more than 70 members, including founding firms such as BASF, Chevron Phillips Chemical, ExxonMobil, Dow Chemical, Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings, Procter & Gamble, and Shell.
“We understand that no viable solution to ending plastic waste can come from any individual company alone, but rather a combination of all of us working together,” Chris Ball, Quantix president and CEO, said in a news release. “Solving the challenges of reducing plastic waste and redefining how it can be used and repurposed is complex, and we are committed to working with the Alliance and its members to take action toward these goals and more.”
As a member company, Quantix will participate in projects with other Alliance members to brainstorm and push initiatives forward to create opportunities within the circular economy, the company said. Those initiatives will focus on plastic collection, sorting, processing, and recycling. Quantix is uniquely positioned to support these efforts with its infrastructure of supply chain assets located where plastics are made and produced.
“The Alliance has been a catalyst for more than 50 projects across 30 countries,” said Natalie Stirling-Sanders, chief advisor and head of Americas for the Alliance. “The solutions that are being supported are often groundbreaking and enabled by strong collaboration amongst all players across the plastic value chain.
“We are delighted to welcome Quantix to the Alliance, and are pleased we now have a logistics company in North America helping to end plastic waste in the environment.”
