TOMRA was founded on an innovation in 1972 that began with the design, manufacturing and sale of reverse vending machines (RVMs) for automated collection of used beverage containers. Today TOMRA provides technology-led solutions that enable the circular economy with advanced collection and sorting systems that optimize resource recovery and minimize waste in the food, recycling and, mining industries. TOMRA has more than ~100,000 installations in over 80 markets worldwide and had total revenues of ~ 9.3 billion NOK in 2019. The Group employs ~4,500 globally and is publicly listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange (OSE: TOM). (

We believe that the circular future holds great opportunities for many industries and society and that collaboration, sharing of knowledge, and new partnerships are vital for circularity. As the only company that can offer a holistic solution for waste management resulting from its leading position in collection and sorting product technology and recognized process knowledge, we work as an essential strategic partner to collaborate with key business players across the entire plastics recycling value chain, aiming to develop new processes, technologies, and business models and close the loop consumer-oriented reusable and recyclable packaging.

TOMRA Circular Economy Division was established in January 2019 to focus on accelerating the transformation to a circular economy and shaping future waste and resource systems. By contributing to the exchange of information about fundamental circular economy topics and key material streams, we aim to lead the way in building a circular future. We continue to work with converters, brand owners, waste management companies, recyclers, and other stakeholders to examine design and implementation for circularity. With our initiative, ReSociety (, we hope to encourage open engagement and education among stakeholders who can support in transition to a circular economy.
