Process automation

The future of the industry

Waste sorting is a highly automated process. But workers still carry out several tasks manually to recover valuables or impurities from waste streams. This work is demanding, repetitive and often performed in an uncomfortable environment. This causes challenges in retention and acquisition of employees. On top of that, regulation changes as well. Changes in international trade of recyclables has led to demands for high purity and consistency for MRFs outputs to survive the volatile market conditions. High-tech process automation at recycling facilities, driven by the latest technologies, represent an efficient and powerful solution for the problem above. At the same time maximizing material purity, improving productivity and minimizing operational costs and the environmental impact.
