Over 2 billion tons of waste is generated each year. World Bank estimates yearly waste will grow approximately 3.5 billion tons by 2050. With waste production steadily increasing, Juno offers new life to the trash and garbage produced every day. Accepting residential and commercial waste, Juno fits into the current waste and recycling landscape, with no behavior change required from consumers.
Research & Design
The Juno team began to successfully process used paper cups to recover paper fibers. The team then realized the supply chain challenges of collecting only paper cups, and pivoted to focus on running all waste from fast food restaurants, leading to successfully processing small batches of waste from both fast food restaurants and amusement park bathrooms.
The pilot 6-ton capacity Juno waste processing system was built and proven to process waste from fast food restaurants, office buildings, airports, and amusement parks. This pilot was able to process hundreds of batches of waste, generating clean paper fiber that was able to be made into new paper products.
Engineering & Design
Juno designed and engineered a 70,000-ton capacity and 300,000-ton capacity waste processing system viable for the U.S. and EU. This Juno® operating model was developed to integrate seamlessly within the existing solid waste industry infrastructure.
Juno invested and began development on a 70,000-ton capacity waste processing system in Oregon (U.S.).
The Toledo, Oregon Juno site is finished construction and prepared to receive feedstock from surrounding areas. Juno also begins accepting residential waste in addition to commercial.
Toledo, Oregon Juno operations begin running 24/7. Recovered sanitized paper fiber, Juno™ Fiber, is sent to a neighboring Georgia-Pacific containerboard mill, and made into new paper products.
Juno kicks off second site engineering internationally.
