Recycling sorting solutions for the electronic scrap sorting - weee
The growing demand for high-value, secondary raw materials makes targeted recycling increasingly attractive. In the EU alone, experts estimated over 8 million tons of disused electrical equipment in 2010. TOMRA Sorting’s goal is to utilize electronic scrap sorting to sort out pollutants as well as high-purity components.
Waste sorting solutions for the organic waste
The total waste volume contains a high percentage of organic waste material. Depending on the origin country, this fraction is treated in different ways. Within the organic fraction, the inert material can cause significant problems during the different treatment processes.
Waste sorting solutions for the packaging industry
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).
Waste sorting solutions for the refuse derived fuel
One way in which valuables within waste can be utilized is by using it as fuel. Refuse derived fuel (RDF) is a term that applies to materials with a high calorific value (typically around 18 Mega joule per kilogram) that are removed from waste streams. Beneficiaries of this material are cement kilns to power plants.
Waste sorting solutions for the paper
The recovery of valuable paper fractions from a paper sorting waste stream has been common practice for many years. To ensure that paper sorting process detect different paper grades with greater efficiency, TOMRA Sorting has innovated and further enhanced a unique solution based on optical technology.
Waste sorting solutions for the commercial & industrial waste
Commercial and Industrial (C&I) waste sorting separates many elements, such as plastics, paper, cardboard, and film - all of which can be effectively recycled into saleable products.
Waste sorting solutions for the municipal solid waste (msw)
Municipal solid waste (MSW) contains recyclable fractions, such as plastics, mixed paper, cardboard, and metals. The demand for these materials is rising, compared with that for primary resources.
Waste sorting solutions for the single stream recycling
Single stream recycling, otherwise known as dry commingled waste, comprises primarily of paper and cardboard, plastic packaging waste, textiles, cans and, in some cases, glass. The demand for these secondary resources continues to rise compared with that of primary resources.
Waste sorting solutions for the bulky waste
Bulky waste sorting can produce a high number of valuable materials. The accessibility of these materials, however, is challenging due to its cumbersome nature.
Waste sorting solutions for the upgrading plastics industry
Using innovative systems, TOMRA Sorting enables you to reliably produce high quality yield, leading to higher profitability and greater ROI.
Waste sorting solutions for the construction & demolition waste
The growing demand for high-value secondary materials renders high quality recycling increasingly attractive. Thousands of tons of recyclable materials from construction and demolition (C&D) activities are sent to landfill every day, resulting in increasingly higher costs - and lost profit.
Recycling sorting solutions for the wood industry
TOMRA Sorting can help you sort the contaminants out of wood.
