Did you know that E-scrap contains up to 100 times more precious metals than the same amount of the primary resource ore?
The growing demand for high-value, secondary raw materials makes targeted recycling increasingly attractive. In the EU alone, experts estimated over 8 million tons of disused electrical equipment in 2010. TOMRA Sorting’s goal is to utilize electronic scrap sorting to sort out pollutants as well as high-purity components.
The WEEE Directive (RL 2002/96/EC) has required the collection and recycling of used electrical equipment since 2003. Additionally, the growing global demand for valuable secondary raw material also serves to encourage high-quality electronic scrap sorting. Waste Electronic Equipment contain a sizeable amount of these worthy materials, such as steel, aluminum, gold, silver, platinum or copper. Effective sensor sorting through TOMRA Sorting ensures that it doesn‘t go to waste.
As the most flexible sorting system within TOMRA Sorting Recycling’s product family, the AUTOSORT combines detection of color and enhanced material information resulting in a multifunctional system that optimizes effectiveness across a broad variety of applications.
The COMBISENSE is a specialized high end machine to separate high purity metal fractions from even the most difficult fractions in terms of composition, grain size and mix from mixed waste and metal streams.
Now in its fourth generation, the FINDER specializes in effectively separating high purity metal fractions from even the most difficult fractions in terms of composition, grain size and mix from mixed waste and metal streams.
Cutting edge X-ray sensors empower the X-TRACT for special sorting tasks.
