    Pre-sorted Material Sorting

    TOMRA can help you sort the value out of Pre-sorted material. The input material of pre-sorted plastics will usually contain materials such as bottles and foil. Before recycling, any impurities need to be cleaned out in order to sort out any residue of organic matter, metals, PVC or coloured PET. The material is checked for colour and material. In the bottle-to-bottle procedures highest and consistent quality standards are required.

    Waste Sorting - Organic Waste Sorting

    The total waste volume contains a high percentage of organic material. This fraction is treated in different ways depending on country. Within the organic fraction, the inert material can cause significant problems during the different treatment processes. For this reason, the inert material content has to be reduced to a minimum in such a way that loses as little organic material as possible.

    Metal Sorting - Non Ferrous Metals Sorting

    Modern sensor-based sorting systems are superior to traditional manual or sink-float processes for reasons including that they achieve material purities of up to 99.9% in refining the sorted fractions. TOMRA Sorting’s efficient sorting and recycling technology provides benefits for shredder machinery and heavy media operators, plus aluminum resmelters. Shredder operators can create individual fractions out of mixed product which yield much higher market values. Heavy media operators can produce and sell pure final products themselves, meaning their investment in technology is recouped quickly. After wet processing, the aluminum product still contains impurities and its concentration can be improved further using TITECH technology and sold for a considerably higher profit. For smelters, the TITECH x-tract [XRT] removes impurities in the secondary resource to such a high degree of precision that less primary resource is needed to obtain useful aluminum.

    Waste Sorting - Bulky Waste Sorting

    TOMRA can help you sort the value out of Bulky waste. Bulky waste can contain a high number of valuable materials but this is not easily accessible within regular waste streams due to its bulkiness. This therefore means that in order to streamline the separation process, the initial treatment step has to involve shredding the input material. In order to prepare sortable fractions, sizing of fractions by screening and the separation of light by heavy compartments is inevitable.

    Packaging Sorting

    Packaging waste is mostly made up of different polymers, beverage cartons, paper and glass. Depending on the country in question, different collection systems apply and the material will invariably arrive in different conditions to the MRF’s (Materials Recovery Facility). However, this does not present us with a problem. At TOMRA Sorting, regardless of the collection system operated, we are able to optimally sort the valuable fractions with high efficiency and purity. We currently operate sorting units at packaging MRF’s in many countries including Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, UK and USA.

    Waste Sorting - Commercial Waste Sorting / Industrial Waste Sorting

    Traditional manual or semi-automated techniques, however, are only able to recover low levels of separate materials from commercial and industrial waste streams. In contrast, TOMRA’s fully adjustable, state-of-the-art, senor-based sorting and recycling systems convert complex and varied commercial and industrial streams into high quality, separated output. The systems also make manual picking unnecessary, thus reducing labor costs and material loss, while increasing the efficiency of commercial waste recycling. Operationally, through using detection techniques such as near infrared (NIR), x-ray transmission (XRT), visual spectrometers (VIS), color line cameras and metal sensors in combination, the systems offer: - High recovery rates - High throughputs - High purity levels - Speedy return on investment - Low running costs - Advanced recognition capabilities (material, color, atomic density etc)

    Metal Sorting - End of Life Vehicles Scrap Sorting

    Using modern TOMRA sorting technology you can generate clean non-ferrous metal fractions in your daily shredder operation. The processing of valuable scrap metal gains more and more importance worldwide. The aim is to generate clean, mono-fraction products from this very complex stream of End of Life Vehicles scrap metal material using suitable separation procedures. And that is worthwhile; End of Life Vehicles scrap processing does not only preserve natural resources of raw material, but it is also considerably cheaper. Compared to the aluminium production from primary raw material, using secondary material from End of Life Vehicles saves around 90% of the energy demand.

    Metal Sorting - Wire Recovery

    Cable materials were often lost in the treatment and sorting processes available till now, which meant a financial loss due to the high proportion of copper they contain. New sorting technologies such as the FINDER are now capable of detecting these cables. Recently it has become possible to separate metals and copper cables. Previously, cable materials were often lost in the treatment and sorting process. This meant a financial loss due to the high proportion of copper they contain. New sorting technologies such as the FINDER and the FINDER [poly] are now capable of detecting these cables, transferring them to a metal product and then finally sorting them in a further step into a cable fraction of outstanding purity.

    Waste Sorting - Refuse Derived Fuel

    One way in which values within waste can be utilized is by using it as fuel. RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) is a term that applies to materials with a high calorific value (typically around 18 Megajoule per kilogramm) that are removed from waste streams. Beneficiaries of this material cement kilns to power plants. TOMRA Sorting technology has long been utilized in many plants across Europe to produce an RDF material from different waste streams according to the specific needs of the end users. The main purpose of this area of work is to ensure that the RDF has very low chlorine content, typically below 0.7% in weight. TOMRA Sortingis able to achieve this by either selecting the ‘good’ material (‘positive sorting’) or by ejecting the ‘bad’ material from the stream, such as small PVC parts (‘negative sorting’).

    Metal Sorting - Electronic Scrap Sorting

    The recycling of disused and obsolete electrical and electronic equipment is gaining more and more importance world-wide. Waste electrical equipment is an incredibly rewarding source of raw materials. In Waste electrical equipment, up to hundreds of times more precious metals can be found per ton of material than in the primary source of raw material, ore. The goal for TITECH and the industry as a whole is to utilise electronic scrap recycling and sort out pollutants on one hand and profitable components in high purity on the other. For electronic recycling purposes, the EU classifies W??? into 10 categories. After separate collection of TVs, fridges and so on, they are processed and sorted in electronic scrap recycling systems. The average content of thus gained materials is as follows: metals (50%), plastics (30%), glass (10%) and other materials (10%).

    Waste Sorting - CRT Glass Sorting

    End of life TV sets and computer monitors require to be recycled to maximise the level of material recovery, and to meet the requirements of the EU WEEE Directive. CRT glass is the largest item by weight. However, because of the 2 different types of glass used in CRT manufacture, the glass fractions have to be sorted to achieve a separation of the 2 type of glass, i.e. panel glass sorted from funnel glass. X-TRACT separator is able to sort the panel glass from the funnel glass. It does it by comparing their different atomic densities, and analysing the data from the X-Rays using a bi-chromatic sensor system. X-TRACT is the first industrial application for any dry mechanical density sorting.
