The Cycled Approach

Setting the value chains in motion.

How Cycled reconfigures our view of recycling with AI.

Building a circular economy with AI

Tracking several million recyclables require a system that can self-learn. Cycled has adapted the AI technology for the self-sorting SmartBin based on this criteria. As Cycled grows, our AI technology based circular economy organically grows with us.

Connecting the two value chains

By combining consumer incentivization with the self-sorting technology, we play a key role in connecting clean and sorted recyclables to recycling facilities. Incorporating both value chains in our system ensures better results.

Building the data matrix – value from waste

Cycled intends to log each piece of waste stream in order to build a data matrix. Knowledge and documentation can make the river of waste change course. This can enable multinationals to stop mining the planet, and start mining our data.

The alchemy of turning silicone into gold

Cycled Technologies will generate three powerful value streams.

The first is defined by consumers recycling waste, and the second by industrial clients sourcing the processed material. Data from the first two will grow and become a rich seam of gold, buried deep inside the company’s server banks. Once the pilots have been completed, several large scale clients will have ongoing partnerships with Cycled Technologies. Fronting sustainable business models and visibly taking environmental responsibility will become essential factors in their marketing strategies.
Cycled Technologies aims to establish a virtual laboratory, in order to provide detailed simulations and training for industrial clients. AI assisted analysis tools will be mining the massive amounts of data generated by the recycling chains, and provide sophisticated simulation scenarios for clients to explore. This will enable them to form detailed strategies for recycling their products, reducing their carbon footprint, and streamlining their customer’s experience. Depending on the nature of the partnership, access to the virtual lab can either be part of a service agreement, or packaged as a consulting engagement. By establishing a solid technological platform right from the start, Cycled Technologies positions itself as an essential partner in the race for a green economy.

The common denominator

The common denominator for all football fans, is the sense of unity and belonging that sweeps through the roaring crowds when the ball finds the net. It speaks to our most basic needs, and unites us in both victory and defeat. Another social activity that we like to participate in is the consumption of food, beverages and snacks. Quite often it is possible to do all of these things in a modern football arena, and that creates a problem. At full capacity, Skagerak Arena plays host to 12.000 people, and during the length of a football match, they produce vast amounts of recyclable material.
As part of their plan for zero emissions and circular economy solutions, Odd Soccer Club will be deploying SmartBins in Skagerak Arena. The deployment is a pilot project, and the first step towards capturing 100% of all recyclables at Skagerak Arena. There are additional benefits to launching a pilot here. By incorporating the rewards system and gaming elements built into the digital platform of Cycled Technologies, it will be possible to link engagement in the football season directly to the act of recycling.

The creation of a turning point

Cycled Technologies is located on an island called Klosterøya, near the center of the town Skien. The name means «Convent Island», in a reference to the convent that was built there in the year 1150. During the 840 years leading up to today, it has seen many uses. Today,  Bratsberg Group has turned the old factory buildings into offices housing a multitude of businesses, among them Cycled Technologies. The two of them have joined forces, creating a pilot project that aims to capture all recyclable material generated by the island’s tenants. It’s too late to reverse the environmental sins of the past, but hopefully someone living 840 years from now will look back, and recognize this as a turning point.
