Who We Are
Brightmark was born out of a desire to disrupt waste on a global scale. With cutting-edge technology, we’re creating solutions for waste through circular innovations.
From the CEO
I started Brightmark with one goal: create a world without waste. It has become my mission. I’m so excited by what the team has accomplished, and I look forward to welcoming you along on our journey to Reimagine Waste®.
-Bob Powell, Founder & CEO of Brightmark
Brightmark began with the pursuit of doing good for the planet. Our journey to Reimagine Waste® is ongoing. This timeline shows how a dream became a reality and how we are moving forward in our commitment to the planet.
Brightmark is founded and the first project goes online in Sumter, South Carolina, using biogas to produce electricity. The company acquires its plastics renewal technology from RES Polyflow.
Brightmark establishes key partnerships with NOAA’s Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary to promote plastics recycling that keeps plastics out of landfills and waterways.
Life at Brightmark

Part of making the world a better place means continuing to re-evaluate how we can operate with the marginalized in mind. We view this as an opportunity to grow as a company and become a greater part of the communities where we live and work.
