To significantly reduce reliance on fossil fuels, it is essential to produce sufficient amounts of recycled plastic material with virgin-like qualities. The good news is that collection and recovery systems such as Deposit Return Systems (DRS) and Mixed Waste Sorting (MWS) can help to achieve this. Paired with Advanced Mechanical Recycling (AMR) where necessary, the market will be well-equipped to meet the growing demand for high-quality recyclates.
For this year’s K exhibition, TOMRA has organized a series of talks, known as “TOMRA Talks”. Members of TOMRA, together with representatives of Borealis, ROAF management, and Worn Again Technologies, among other speakers, will cover current issues such as Advanced Mechanical Recycling (AMR), Mixed Waste Sorting (MWS), chemical recycling, and textile recycling.
In addition to Recycling Sorting, this year TOMRA Public Affairs and Collection will be present on the stand. As experts in the field of policy, they will be available to answer questions about upcoming legislation as well as inform on topics such as Deposit Return Systems (DRS) and Reverse Vending Machines (RVM), which are machines where people can conveniently return empty beverage containers like bottles and cans for recycling.
