Three new contracts secured with plant builder and waste engineering expert McDonald International Ltd

17 November 2014

TOMRA Sorting has been selected as the technology provider of choice by leading plant builder and waste engineering expert, McDonald International Ltd, for three of its latest projects.  These new contract wins will see TOMRA Sorting’s TITECH technology increase the value and purity of paper and plastics at sites in England, Ireland and Wales.

  • A TITECH autosort 4 unit has been installed as part of an upgrade to Barna Recycling’s 18tph mixed dry recycling (MDR) plant in Galway, Ireland.  The unit will be used to clean and increase the value of the paper fraction, with plans also being considered to add a further unit to enhance the plant’s plastics sorting capabilities.
  • Leading plastics recycling company, Roydon Group, produces PET flakes at its 5tph plastics recycling facility in Caerphilly, Wales. A TITECH autosort 4 unit has been installed as part of an upgrade, enabling the Roydon Group to purify PET before granulation. 
  • As part of an upgrade project, a TITECH autosort 4 unit was installed at Polypipe’s recycling plant in Horncastle, Lincs. The unit will enable Polypipe to increase the purity of the PE fraction, which is used to manufacture a number of products in Polypipe’s range.

Specific sorting challenges and maximal plant performance

Luke Coyle, sales and marketing manager at McDonald International Ltd, comments: “We wanted to offer our customers the very latest in sensor-based sorting solutions to help them address their specific sorting challenges and maximise their plants’ performance.  Having worked closely with the team at TOMRA Sorting over the years, and having seen at first-hand what the TITECH technology is capable of achieving, we had no hesitation in recommending them as our partners for these projects.”

Long-standing, successful relationship

Stephen Almond, sales engineer at TOMRA Sorting, adds: “We’re delighted to have secured these new contracts with McDonalds International. We have a long-standing, successful relationship with McDonalds and our TITECH solutions have been installed across a number of their projects throughout the UK. These latest contracts demonstrate the benefits that sensor-based sorting can offer across a range of applications, from significantly reducing labour costs, to increasing the value of paper and increasing the purity of PE and PET.
