Trio chooses Tomra for paper sorting by sensor

Sensor-based sorting technology from Tomra Sorting UK has been selected by three waste processing companies in the UK and the Republic of Ireland to boost their paper sorting capacity.

The ontracts see a range of Tomra’s TiTech autosort technology chosen by Saica Natur, AES Ireland and Wastebeater, all to boost both volume and quality of recovered paper, demonstrating application of the technology to a single waste stream.

Saica Natur has installed its new TiTech autosort unit at its paper reprocessing facility in Glasgow, which processes around 25,000 tonnes of paper a year. The new kit will enable the company to process a higher volume of in-feed material from the region’s local authorities, sorting it into different grades including newspaper and pamphlets and mixed old corrugated containers (OCC). 

Johan Sundblad, managing director at Saica Natur, said: “We’ve given our systems a real overhaul, identifying and fixing bottlenecks and installing the new TiTech autosort unit.  This has resulted in an increase in capacity from 10tph to 15tph, and purity levels of more than 97%.”
