TOMRA Sorting (TITECH)
based in Mülheim-Kärlich, GERMANY
Traditional (manual) or semi-automated techniques, however, are only able to recover low levels of separate materials from mixed municipal waste streams and mean considerable content going to landfill.
In contrast, TOMRA Sorting’s fully automated, state-of-the-art, sensor-based municipal sorting systems convert complex and varied - even dirty - municipal solid waste streams into high quality, separated, marketable output. The systems also make manual sorting unnecessary, thus reducing labor costs and material loss, while increasing efficiency.
Operationally, through using detection techniques such as near infrared (NIR), x-ray transmission (XRT), color line cameras and metal sensors in combination.
