New Jersey recycles batteries, New York does not (WTF NY?). Julia frequents New Jersey and loves to recycle.
Give your dead ass batteries to Julia so she can fulfill her environmentalist life.
I know what you're thinking
what the f do i do with all these batteries?!
WHY USE DIGITAL TWINS
where does our trash go?
10% or Greater Savings from Digital Twins

Contamination is a direct result of: 1) millions of inconsistent and confusing labels on recycling bins throughout society, 2) confusion about what is actually recyclable at a given bin, and 3) the lack of national messaging about the importance of recycling right.
Everyday, the public throws millions of tons of garbage into recycling bins. That 'garbage' contaminates the good recyclables, hence the term contamination.
the collapse of recycling is primarily due to high contamination levels in the recycling stream. Contamination cripples the economics of recycling.
The largest recycling hauler in the U.S. has recently closed 25% of their recycling plants.
The process to remove contamination reduces profitability, driving up the cost of recyclables, thereby preventing many manufacturers from reusing recycled materials. As a result, they continue to deplete finite natural resources at alarming levels.
Cute baby marine animals everywhere thank you.
recycling can be easy and convenient, any questions please feel free to ask
HARNESSING A DIGITAL TWIN IS A KEY ELEMENT OF DIGITALIZATION
ok maybe not, but you're being a good human
When U.S. recycling levels reach 75% it will generate 1.5 million new jobs in the U.S. (net).
When U.S. recycling levels reach 75% it will be the environmental and CO2 equivalent of removing 55 million cars from U.S. roads each year.
This is important because mining
and deforestation activities contribute substantially to pollution and the emission of greenhouse gases into
By recycling, you can help to reduce the need for the extraction of virgin raw materials from the earth, through activities such as mining and deforestation.
HOW DIGITALIZATION AND THE DIGITAL TWIN Drive Innovation Efficiency
Companies in the consumer packaged goods (CPG) and process industries face multiple challenges at seemingly every turn. Markets and supply chains are becoming increasingly global, bringing to the table an expanding roster of regional compliance requirements.
DIALING UP ON DIGITALIZATION
Pushing the envelope
Nearly three-quarters (70%) of manufacturers surveyed by Foley & Lardner in 2020 are increasing their emphasis on resilient, flexible manufacturing processes. Digitalization is at the core.
Big moves, major investments
A whopping 80% of CPGs queried for Deloitte’s 2021 Consumer Products Industry Outlook said they are making major investments in digitalization. More than one in three companies are upgrading their enterprise technology in this manner.
Seven in 10 CPG boards of directors have accelerated digital business initiatives in the wake of COVID-19 disruption, an Ernst & Young study found.
THE DIGITAL TWIN: A CRITICAL COMPONENT OF DIGITALIZATION
Harnessing a digital twin is a key element of digitalization.
"Digital twin" defined
A digital twin is a digital replica of something that exists in the real world, such as a piece of equipment or manufacturing line or even a physical design prototype. In formulated and process manufacture, it’s a product or product formula.
Implementation on the upswing
According to Global Market Insights, the market for digital twins exceeded $4 billion in 2019 and will exhibit a CAGR of more than 30% between 2020 and 2026.
Top strategic initiative
Digital twins represent an “important strategic initiative” for more than 70% of respondents to a survey by IDC.
A report by Foley & Lardner states that “most forward-thinking companies use the power of digitalization and digital twins to transform their business and…drive innovation.”
In formulated product manufacturing, CPGs can create a digital twin of a formula (including variations) from an existing bill of materials or from scratch.
Whatever its origin and whichever way it’s derived, using a digital twin when launching a formulated product development project allows CPGs to simulate product performance, determining how changes to the formula will impact:
Determinations are derived by applying artificial intelligence (AI) and data analytics to the digital twin.
More than double the benefits
The digital twin combines simulations with data analytics, bringing to light new insights and paving the way for actionable decisions. The end-result:
Drastically decreased time to market, with shorter innovation cycles.
IDC forecasts that by 2023, 65% of global manufacturers will have achieved an operational savings of 10% from digital twin implementation.
The ‘full model’ monte
A “full model” digital twin of a formula includes production requirements, further paving the way for such additional advantages as:
Easy shift of production between manufacturing plants.

OPTIMIZING OUTCOMES: THE SIEMENS APPROACH
Changing consumer expectations
Harnessing a digital twin in formulated design yields benefits by enabling CPGs to address complex challenges:
Consumers are no longer willing to pay extra for quality, subjecting CPGs to heightened price pressure. People want top-caliber products at lower prices—and will quickly deflect to the competition if a manufacturer fails to deliver.
Personalization, variety the name of the game
Demand for personalized products and shifting seasonal requirements are now the norm, while cries for product variety are louder than ever. CPGs must find ways to fit the bill on all counts—and to bring product to market at lightning speed.
Market gone global
Markets and supply chains are no longer regional; they are global. This subjects CPGs to an increasingly varied and complex set of regulations and supply chain requirements.
“Large brands are celebrating falling times to market—to just eight weeks, from a year,” according to McKinsey. “Yet many more companies are still flat-footed, wondering what to do. The race has already begun, and in the next normal, as in the Great Recession, companies that fail to innovate will probably be left behind."
Siemens Digital Industries Software is a leader in enabling CPGs’ digital transformation. Its Opcenter RD&L (research, development, and laboratory) solution drives innovation efficiency in formulated product design with:
Opcenter Specification, a single repository for formulated product data.

Market claims accuracy
Easy adaptability to site-specific production equipment.
Demand for an ever-changing wider variety of higher quality personalized products is heating up. So, too, is the pressure to produce top-caliber products at a lower price. Digitalization—making digitized information available across the enterprise—is the key to successfully overcoming these challenges, with digital twins playing a starring role.
Enhanced ability to develop more complex products and broader product portfolios in a shorter amount of time.
Significant reduction of product development costs.
Electronic Lab Notebook, for capturing all R&D, trial, and experiment project data.
Opcenter Formulation, for simulating product performance through a digital twin.
