SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 8, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Kamilo, Inc., a Public Benefit Corporation developing market-driven solutions to solve the global plastic waste crisis, today announced a partnership with Esri, the global leader in location intelligence.
Kamilo earned participation in the Esri Partner Network Startup Program, a coveted program that helps emerging business partners build solutions and bring new and innovative products to Esri customers. The initial partnership will enable Kamilo to develop solutions which track and verify that plastic waste is recycled and does not become an environmental pollutant.
Kamilo delivers data and analytics to clients and partners engaged in plastics origination, recovery, processing, recycling and reuse. Our Esri-enabled technology platform is designed to bring transparency and accountability to the global plastics supply chain and to recycled plastics markets, with a novel accountability system able to track the journey of plastics from waste to next-life, from blue bin to new bottle™, thus creating a verifiable link between recovery and reuse.
