Juno, a recycling technology pioneered by Atlanta-based Georgia-Pacific (GP), has been recognized by three entities for innovation and sustainability and the impact it is having on recycling and landfill diversion.
GP developed the technology to recycle highly contaminated recovered fiber and mixed materials, piloting it at its plant in Savannah, Georgia, starting in 2013. It installed the technology at its Toledo, Oregon, material recovery facility (NRF), which opened in the spring of 2021.
