About Resourcify and Interzero

Resourcify helps companies optimise their waste management. The easy-to-use SaaS solution makes recycling more efficient and transparent. It helps companies recycle more, reduce costs and recover waste as recyclables. Since the end of 2018, the platform has been used to process more than 1 million disposal orders each year by customers such as Syntegon, Hornbach and McDonald's in seven European countries. In addition, waste management companies are also using Resourcify to improve their customer service, strengthen their sales, and attract and retain more revenue-generating customers.

Interzero is one of the leading service providers around the closure of product, material and logistics loops as well as an innovation leader in plastics recycling with the largest sorting capacity in Europe. The company helps over 50,000 customers across Europe to deal responsibly with valuable materials. With around 2,000 employees, the company generates sales of over one billion euros (2021). Interzero's recycling activities could save one million metric tons of greenhouse gases compared to primary production and over 12.5 million metric tons of primary raw materials in 2021 alone, according to the Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety and Energy Technology.

"Our partnership combines the decades of experience of Interzero's closed-loop experts with Resourcify's cutting-edge technology to create novel synergies. We will help Interzero's customers digitise waste management, collection, documents and payments. Together with our industry-leading reporting tool and optimisation expertise, we are creating one of the most compelling new digital offerings in the European recycling market. For us, the partnership represents a growth potential of more than 100%. To date, we have managed over €100 million worth of waste annually. By partnering with Interzero, we will double that value in perspective - and that's just nationwide."
