TOMRA Sorting Recycling’s solutions are of increasing importance
TOMRA Sorting Recycling’s role in Africa is of increasing importance, as it is on other continents around the world, because of the immense problems posed by waste. As the world’s population increases – and as millions more people in developing nations gain the living standards of the throw-away ‘consumer society’ – more and more waste will be discharged into landfill, incinerators, and the oceans. With higher rates of recycling now needed urgently, TOMRA provides the optimum technical solutions for extracting recyclable materials from waste streams.
Speaking from TOMRA’s new South African headquarters, Tasos Bereketidis, TOMRA Sorting Recycling’s Regional Sales Director for Emerging Markets, said: “Recycling technologies are a vital requirement in all developed nations, and TOMRA expects to see further growth in southern African markets. From our new premises in Johannesburg we are well positioned to respond to increasing demand for our sensor-based technologies, and to help customers obtain optimum performance from these. I look forward to welcoming existing and new customers to our new premises, and to discussing how TOMRA can increase their productivity.”
