Tomra Sorting

Sensor-based sorting equipment provider, Tomra Sorting, has announced six contract wins for what it believes will be the most advanced C&I MRFs in the UK. These are set to process a combined total of 525,000 tonnes of C&I waste over the next year.

A range of TiTech sensor-based sorting solutions will be installed at: Mid UK Recycling’s plant in Caythorpe, Lincs; Blakeley’s Waste Management’s new plant in Wigan; Devon Contract Waste’s plant in Exeter; Gaskells Waste Service’s plant in Merseyside; Weir Waste’s plant in Birmingham and Spotmix’s plant in Merseyside.

Tomra Sorting’s TiTech technology uses a range of detection techniques including near infrared (NIR), X-ray transmission (XRT), visual spectrometers (VIS), colour line cameras and metal sensors. According to Tomra, its latest automated technology can help plants recover 70 – 80% of material at purity rates of 95%, so diverting material from landfill and increasing the materials available for re-sale.
