The collaboration allows Sterilis customers to participate in the industry's only closed-loop supply chain. Likewise, Polycarbin customers gain expanded options for recycling hard-toprocess materials while obtaining lab products that align with their sustainability goals.

"Through our collaboration with Polycarbin, we're extending our commitment to sustainability. Together, we're not just treating waste; we're transforming it into a valuable resource for labs." - Andy Marshall, Sterilis Solutions CEO.

"Partnering with Sterilis aligns with our goal of diverting as much single-use plastic waste from landfills and incinerators as possible. Our customers will now have a more comprehensive service offering further reducing their carbon impact." - Noah Pyles, Polycarbin Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer.

Together, Sterilis and Polycarbin offer a complete, sustainable solution for labs that understand resource management for their operations. It's not just about waste management; it's about transforming the way labs operate, reducing costs, and creating a positive environmental impact.

Laboratory plastic consumables can now undergo both sterilization and circularization, marking a significant stride towards a decarbonized life science, pharmaceutical, and clinical diagnostics supply chain.
