Rubicon teams with UL on recycled-content certification

Atlanta-based recycling software firm Rubicon says it is partnering with Northbrook, Illinois-based Underwriters Laboratories LLC (UL) “to support each company’s shared circularity and sustainability aspirations to end waste, in all of its forms, while creating economic value.”

The firms say they will extend third-party validation services, such as UL’s standards for circularity, recycled content and waste diversion, to Rubicon’s customers and collaborators while helping UL customers access Rubicon recycling and waste reduction services. The aim of the partnership, the two companies say, is to help manufacturers and brand owners secure recognition for their efforts to use scrap as feedstock or to divert waste “and help create a more circular and sustainable economy.”
