Tomra Systems, ASA has entered into an agreement to acquire Greenbean Recycle Inc., a company specializing in technology for RVMs that facilitates rewards and incentives for customers and brings marketing value to retailers. The acquisition is an all-cash transaction and terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The rewards technology will be integrated into TOMRA’s ReAct technology platform. ReAct is a consumer engagement system designed to enhance the recycling experience, providing rewards and incentives for the consumers using RVMs to recycle their bottles and cans. Launched in Europe earlier this year, ReAct personalizes the process of recycling, and uses social media to highlight and reward top recyclers. Today, millions of consumers already use RVMs in the U.S. and Europe across dozens of retailers to recycle, earn their deposit value and feel good about recycling.

TOMRA plans to use new and enhanced personalization technology to provide more value to its retail customers, grow organically in non-retail locations and continue to support the currently installed base in public spaces.

The Greenbean technology facilitates a retailer’s interaction with customers: Based on a consumer’s recycling habits, the retailer can provide the customer with loyalty points or coupons, and ensure the funds will be spent in the store. When recycling through an RVM, customers have the option of adding points to their store loyalty cards or gift cards.
