World's first 360-degree instant container recognition system
Our latest innovation TOMRA Flow Technology™, the world's first 360-degree instant-recognition system inside a reverse vending machine, raises the bar.
It's FASTER: The groundbreaking recognition technology instantly detects barcodes and security marks, allowing users to insert containers rapidly in a continuous flow, increasing convenience and peak-hour capacity.
It's CLEANER: Smart design and intuitive interfaces reduce the need for cleaning and at the same time make the machine easier to clean.
It TAKES ALL: TOMRA Flow Technology™ handles containers other technologies can't. This opens new possibilities for what can be collected — even new material fractions in future recycling schemes.
