Duncan entered the world of deposit return schemes (DRS) in 2018 when he pioneered the concept of Digital DRS (DDRS) and has been leading the programme of socialising, developing and validating the technology since then. He has built up an extensive network and a strong reputation for his knowledge – especially around deposit return systems.
Early in 2021 Duncan’s business, Circularity Solutions joined forces with Spain-based Recycl3r to create the DDRS Alliance – a collaboration of global and national organisations cooperating to design, develop and validate an open global blueprint for DDRS.
In addition, Duncan advises and supports retailers and equipment vendors on DRS implementation – currently focused on Scotland’s DRS launch in 2023.
A graduate Mechanical Engineer, Duncan has led a successful career in start-ups to major blue chips in technical, commercial and general management roles. He has worked extensively across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Duncan is married with 4 boys and coaches junior rugby and football (soccer!).
