Reject PP plastics


We help the world recycle plastics through sensor-based sorting systems that instantly detect and remove contaminants from all types of polymers. 

High performance plastic sorting systems

As the demand for high-quality recycled plastic feedstock continues to grow, you need a reliable and knowledgeable partner in polymer sorting. We are a trusted world leader in plastic recovery and the advanced sorting of plastic waste. Effective recycling of post-consumer plastic packaging and products that enables a circular economy requires intelligent, high throughput sorting systems.

Our market-leading sensor technologies upgrade plastics by instantly sorting various polymers into individual fractions while removing difficult-to-detect contaminants. Our advanced sorting systems for plastic films and flakes, as well as color sorting, ensure your operation is fully capable of processing high-quality plastic fractions across multiple applications, today and in the future.

Mixed plastic

In a circular economy, high-performance recyclable plastics should never end up becoming waste, regardless of the waste stream complexity. Upgrading post-consumer plastic waste into high-grade recyclates demands cutting-edge sensor-based sorting systems that consistently provide exceptional purity levels.

Delivering unrivaled performance with yields and quality, our plastic sorting systems give recyclers a clear advantage in the marketplace. Our market-leading sensor technologies make it possible to effectively produce plastic-consumer resin (PCR) with virgin-like quality for higher profitability and greater ROI.

PE-silicone cartridges

Used in combination with AUTOSORT™, our Deep Learning technologies helps purify post-consumer polyethylene (PE) by removing PE-silicone cartridges and non-PE objects. Until now, silicone cartridges were considered difficult to sort and a major contaminant in PE waste streams – but GAINnext™ sets new industry standards in performance and purity levels.

Even if the silicon cartridges are bundled, damaged or deformed, GAINnext™ detects and separates the objects from clean PE fractions, giving plastic recyclers a significant competitive advantage.

Your benefits:
- Unrivaled post-consumer PE purity levels
- Great adaptability
- Supports maximum belt speed
PET Flakes

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET)

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is a commonly used material in the production of beverage bottles, food packaging containers and thermoformed trays. As the most recycled plastic packaging in Europe, post-consumer PET waste is a high-value commodity when optimally sorted and processed with automated technologies.

With our AI-powered sorting systems and deep learning technology, recyclers benefit from the high-accuracy removal of opaque white bottles, polyester textiles and foils from PET streams. In addition to creating high-quality fractions for rPET that enable bottle-to-bottle recycling, operators can create new revenue streams by sorting opaque bottles for recycling.

Polyolefins (PO)

Polyolefins (PO) are the most widely used plastics today due to their versatility across numerous applications, including food packaging, coatings, containers, garden furniture and appliances. Polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE), with their low- and high-density variations, LDPE, LLDPE and HDPE, are the main polyolefins that must be effectively sorted to create high-value recyclates. 

Our AI-powered sorting systems and deep learning technology provide outstanding separation of food-grade plastic packaging. Now, achieving over 95% purity levels in the recovery of HDPE and PP without manual sorting to meet regulations is possible. Moreover, our automated technology enables operators to run multiple material streams on one line.

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC)

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a highly versatile polymer extensively used in numerous products, including window profiles, pipes and fittings, packaging, electric cables, flooring and waterproof membranes. Due to its thermoplastic nature, PVC can be recycled several times without significant performance loss, making it ideal for recycling.

While PVC recycling of processing waste has been commonplace in Europe, our sensor-based sorting units also enable recycling across complex waste streams. Recyclers benefit from our advanced detection technologies that identify a variety of impurities, delivering high purity yields to meet increasing market demands for recycled PVC.

Film sorting

Plastic films such as protective foils, wraps, and bags are widely used products in the packaging industry. Due to their low density and shape, plastic film materials such as PP and LDPE require specialized equipment and high precision sensor-based sorting to remove contaminants like labeled films, paper, hard plastics, or other colored films before recycling.

Our high-speed film sorting units combine circulating laminar airflow and high precision sensor technology to sort plastic films by polymer and/or color efficiently. Operators benefit economically from less downtime due to no material blockages and high purity, mono-material films suitable for plastic recycling.
