OnAsset Intelligence Partners With Jiva Materials To Develop The World's First Biodegradable Tracking Device

Dallas, TX (BUSINESS WIRE) - In a groundbreaking partnership, OnAsset Intelligence, a leading provider of asset tracking solutions, and Jiva Materials, a pioneer in sustainable materials, have come together to develop the world's first biodegradable tracking device. This exclusive collaboration aims to combat the increasing problem of electronic waste (e-waste) and offer a sustainable solution to the environmental challenges posed by the disposal of single-use data logging and tracking devices.

The rise of global commerce and desire for enhanced supply chain visibility have increased the demand for tracking and monitoring devices to ensure the safe and timely delivery of goods worldwide. The result is an ever increasing e-waste problem driven by single-use data logging and tracking devices, which are discarded after their short life span. As a consequence millions of tons of e-waste are created every year that contains toxic elements that can leach into the soil and water, causing serious environmental and health hazards.

"The need for an environmentally friendly solution has never been greater," says Adam Crossno, CEO of OnAsset Intelligence. "Our partnership with Jiva Materials is a testament to our commitment to innovation and sustainability. Together, we're addressing a global issue and providing a solution that is both effective and kind to the planet."

Jiva Materials has been at the forefront of creating materials that are both sustainable and functional. Their expertise in developing biodegradable materials made them the perfect partner for OnAsset Intelligence in this venture. Dr. Jonathan Swanston, CEO of Jiva Materials, comments, "We are thrilled to collaborate with OnAsset Intelligence. This partnership aligns with our vision of reducing the environmental impact of electronic devices. The biodegradable tracking device is just the beginning, and we're excited to lead the way in sustainable tech solutions."

OnAsset’s new biodegradable tracking device is expected to revolutionize the logistics and transportation industry by providing a sustainable option that helps customers achieve their ESG goals while providing a much needed alternative to existing single use devices on the market. In additional support of ESG compliance, OnAsset will be providing a certificate of CO2 footprint savings with each unit. Both companies believe that this is a substantial step towards a more sustainable future and hope to inspire other industries to adopt environmentally friendly solutions.
