AMP Robotics

AMP Robotics™ is a pioneer in artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and infrastructure for the waste and recycling industry.

AMP Robotics is modernizing the world’s recycling infrastructure by applying AI and automation to increase recycling rates and economically recover recyclables reclaimed as raw materials for the global supply chain.

AMP Robotics was founded in 2015 by James Bailey and Matanya Horowitz. The company is headquartered in Louisville, Colorado. AMP also has three production facilities in the Denver, Atlanta, and Cleveland metropolitan areas.


The AMP Cortex™ high-speed robotics system automates the identification and sorting of recyclables from mixed material streams. The AMP Neuron™ AI platform continuously trains itself by recognizing different colors, textures, shapes, sizes, patterns, and even brand labels to identify materials and their recyclability.


AMP's AMP Clarity™ provides data and material characterization on what recyclables are captured and missed, helping recycling businesses and producers maximize recovery. The AMP Neuron™ platform has recognized more than 50 billion objects in real-world conditions, making it the largest known dataset of recyclable materials for machine learning. 


AMP has a fleet of approximately 275 robots around the world. With deployments across North America, Asia, and Europe, the platform has processed over a billion recyclables
