3. In terms of sorting, which waste stream would require more focus in the future?
Everyone’s eye should be on municipal solid waste and dry recyclables. Automating the sorting processes for these waste streams is indispensable to processing higher capacities. Mid to long-term, it will help reduce overall costs and create a safer working environment for the employees. But there is also untapped potential for metal, PO, wood and textile sorting in the region, which we consider worth looking into.
4. How does technology such as sensor-based sorting, Artificial Intelligence and robotics help accelerate our shift towards a circular economy
The more resources we recover, the more can we use again to make new products. And the higher the product purity, the easier it becomes to replace primary raw materials with recyclates. Sensor-based sorting solutions are key to accelerating the transition to a circular economy as they are the most powerful systems on the market.
