Ryse Solutions enters the marketplace as Canada's first fully integrated producer responsibility organization
Well known Canadian recycling and resource recovery pioneer Emmie Leung announced today that she has launched a new company, Ryse Solutions Inc., that is Canada's first fully integrated producer responsibility organization offering compliance services and material recovery solutions and advice under one umbrella.
Headquartered in Burlington, Ontario, Ryse Solutions is already up and running with the expertise, experience, equipment and facilities to deliver integrated solutions to producers, manufacturers, packaging suppliers, importers, distributors and retailers of products and packaging materials that are obligated under producer responsibility regulations across North America.
"Ryse Solutions is unmatched in this space. It is distinct from other producer responsibility organizations because we have the experience and direct access to a well-established, end-of-life product and packaging management infrastructure through partnerships with Emterra Group, Circular Polymers Group, Emterra Tire Recycling and other organizations," says Leung, Ryse Solutions' CEO.
In addition to regulatory compliance, the new company will be able to use its network to help its customers identify and meet their own recycling and sustainability targets.
In an effort to grow the circular and low carbon economy, new regulations are setting the standard that companies must comply with as a part of their day-to-day operations.
Ontario's Used Tire regulation
Ontario's new used tire regulation, set to take effect in 2019, is an example of changes in producer responsibility policy framework that is pushing companies to look at how they conduct their businesses in a more sustainable way - reducing and reusing material inputs and external outputs - while complying with regulatory obligations.
"Ryse Solutions has been established to work with organizations to help them meet their growing regulatory and supply-chain compliance requirements and to create strategic partnerships across the circular economy value chain," says Gordon Day, Vice President of Ryse Solutions. "Ontario's new tire regulation contemplates and provides the opportunity for producers to retain the services of a producer responsibility organization to assist them in meeting their obligations starting 2019. Utilizing the in-house tire hauling and processing services of Emterra Tire Recycling, Ryse Solutions will be able to help Ontario tire producers achieve their service and target requirements.
"We are committed to making the process seamless and secure for our customers," adds Day. "Together, we will work with our clients to find the best solutions possible, so they can continue to grow their businesses."
Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
