Juno is an Innovative Recycling Technology

About 146 million tons of municipal solid waste in the U.S. went to landfills in 2018, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). New technology is helping to turn some of that trash into treasure by recovering valuable materials for reuse.

That’s where Juno comes in. Georgia-Pacific’s first commercial facility with its Juno technology is up and running in Toledo, Oregon.

“Juno is a new innovative waste diversion and recycling process that captures recyclable material previously destined for landfill or incineration because of coatings or food contamination,” said John Mulcahy, Vice President – Stewardship for Georgia-Pacific.

Mulcahy said Juno works like a pressure cooker. Commercial waste comes into the Juno facility and enters the Juno™ Clave. This rotating pressurized vessel uses steam to sanitize and process the waste materials. Up to 90% of what is processed through Juno can be diverted from landfills.
