Waste recognition software to monitor, audit & sort waste at scale 

Greyparrot automates the measurement of waste streams using AI-powered computer vision software. Real-time analysis on 100% of waste flows is helping waste managers save cost, increase revenue and mitigate against risks.


Waste management is facing mounting pressure to reinvent

Recycling is necessary to conserve important raw materials and protect our environment. The current low global recycling rate of 14% is partly due to a process that relies heavily on manual labour. The system faces a trade‐off between economic viability and recycling rates. Yet, there is an ever-growing demand from consumers, brands, governments and waste managers to transition to a more circular economy. This provides an urgent need and opportunity to optimise waste management with further digitisation and automation.

Greyparrot Solution 

Our goal is to empower all stakeholders in the waste management process with actionable insights to increase recycling and recovery rates. Our end-to-end solution is currently deployed on moving conveyor belts in sorting and recovery facilities to measure large waste flows. Greyparrot provides waste analytics to automate the current manual auditing process and provide new insights previously unavailable to waste managers, producers and regulators.

Our Vision

To create a world where waste is treated as a resource. It is monitored, captured and reused in the most effective way. We are committed to unlocking the financial value of waste, which will, in turn, support our transition to a circular economy and keep our environment clean for generations to come

“AI-enabled machine vision is needed to detect materials that current machineries cannot. This software gives us data insights to maximise our material recovery”

Harrison Kim

Managing Director, ACI - largest recycling system integrator in South Korea

“AI, robotics and other innovative technologies in the waste industry will be key to ensure the transition to a low-carbon, circular economy.”
