Dell Utilizes VMware’s Blockchain Tech to Track Recycled Packaging

Under the partnership, VMware is providing its blockchain solutions to track and trace recycled plastic packaging materials.

Software provider VMware announced a partnership with Dell Technologies to track Dell’s recycled packaging items via blockchain technology.

Under the partnership, VMware is providing its blockchain solutions to track and trace recycled plastic, in which end users can view the origin of the recycled material—from what kind of plastic it was and from where it was recovered.

Dell has an existing supply chain for recycled material that comprises aggregators who collect the plastic, recyclers who process the waste and the manufacturer who takes that recycled material to make packaging for Dell laptops. VMware’s blockchain solution will support each transaction between the aggregator, recycler and manufacturer.

VMware, a Cloud and virtualization Software Company, is working with Dell Technologies to trace and track Dell’s recycled packaging items utilizing blockchain. VMware’s Pratima Gluckman, Engineering Leader at VMware for Blockchain, delivered few insights about the project during an interview recently.

Gluckman stated that VMware is offering its blockchain solutions to track and follow the recycled plastic. Moreover, the end-user who has purchased a Dell laptop can see the history of the reused material, from what sort of plastic it was and from where it was recouped.

VMware’s blockchain supports every one of these transactions between the recycler, aggregator, and the manufacturer. Further, Gluckman said that the utilization of blockchain is to demonstrate the authenticity of the reused material.
