FREMONT, Calif., Feb. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EverestLabs, developer of the first AI-enabled operating system for material recycling facilities (MRFs), today announced it has been named a finalist in the 2023 Edison Awards.

We are dedicated to providing continuous innovation that further optimizes MRF operations and improves recovery rates that save valuable commodities from being lost to landfills.”
