Technology from Leicester-based Impact Air Systems (IAS) uses air to separate dust and dry materials such as fractions of paper and plastic, metals, trommel fines and glass that can otherwise be costly and difficult to remove.
Its advanced Film Vac system consists of a series of collection hoods which are usually mounted above sorting belts and are used to transport hand-picked material. The zigzag classification unit separates waste material based on density, size and shape into a stream of heavy and light materials.
It has been implemented into waste management operations across the UK and Japan. IAS recently signed an exclusive deal with Wastech Engineering in Australia.
