715,000 tons of metal is recovered every year by our metal recycling machines. That’s the equivalent of 4,031 Boeing 747s. What’s even more incredible? To date, only 1,435 Boeing 747s have ever been made.
The growing demand for high-value secondary materials renders high quality recycling increasingly attractive. Thousands of tons of recyclable materials from construction and demolition (C&D) activities are sent to landfill every day, resulting in increasingly higher costs - and lost profit.
Construction and demolition (C&D) waste represents the largest source of waste in Europe and comprises of a complex mix of materials, including inert material, wood, paper, plastics and metals. Reprocessing these secondary fractions is more energy efficients that using virgin material and improves the carbon footprint. Additionally, increaseing landfill costs also mean alternative disposal options are urgently needed.
With TOMRA's pioneering and efficient sorting technology, separating valuable materials from C&D waste makes it worthwhile - in every aspect.
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.
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.
