On the occasion of its 10th anniversary, TOMRA France will present its latest innovations in automation solutions for optimizing recycling performance at the Pollutec Show, from November 29 to December 2, 2016 at Lyon Eurexpo.
TOMRA Sorting Recycling will feature proven solutions for sorting black polymers and black objects from packaging. Recycling targets set by the EU have become increasingly ambitious over the years and the price for plastics continues to fluctuate. Hence, obtaining highest purity rates is necessary in order to meet legislative targets and to get the maximum profit from yield. Sorting black polymers and black objects from packaging into single pure fractions can be key here. Depending on the existing plant set-up, either existing TOMRA´s sorting units can be modified and turned into a black plastics recovery system or an additional black plastics sorting unit can be added to the process. The return of investment will be achieved within a short period of time by the enhanced value of the separated fractions.
At the same time TOMRA will also present the new T-105 Promo reverse vending machine. This compact, stand-alone machine is designed for the recovery of bottles and cans, with or without return refund. It is a fun and educational collection machine which may also serve as a marketing tool. Its integrated 15 inches touch screen allows a personalized interaction with the user. It gives the opportunity to share on social networks in order to promote and share the best recycling practices. An automatically reward to consumers who return their non-returnable drinks packaging is possible, for example, with a price reduction on selected products. Proposing a well-chosen gratification can be enough to encourage most people to return up to 98% of beverage packaging consumed.
