tomra recycling applications flakes sorting

Sensor-based sorting applications

Reach new heights in the efficient recovery of recyclable materials across a wide variety of applications in waste and metal sorting. Our automated sorting systems deliver unparallel performance for maximum yields and high purity levels regardless of input complexity.

Any application, anytime, anywhere in the world.

We help you recycle more efficiently no matter the sorting application.

We take a modern approach to material recovery by developing our sensors, machines and software in-house to meet application-specific sorting tasks. As the composition of waste streams continuously and rapidly change, we provide highly flexible and intelligent solutions to optimize recovery rates as your business grows.

You profit from having an experienced partner by your side every step of the way – from material analysis to sorting optimization and beyond. We strive to ensure you have the best sorting performance for your applications now and long term.
