In the News: Ohio State, Rumpke promote circular economy research, teaching and practices

A new collaboration between the Sustainability Institute at The Ohio State University and Rumpke Waste & Recycling will support advances in circular economy research, teaching and practices at a time when population growth in central Ohio is expected to bring new challenges to managing waste.

The company will invest in the university’s zero-waste goal by funding expanded efforts to improve recycling and waste elimination on campus. Additional funds will support engineering research and teaching to unlock ways that artificial intelligence and new automation can improve the effectiveness of recovering recycled material from the waste stream. The collaboration is supported by a new gift of $1 million from the company.
