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.
