Waste sorting: solutions for diverse requirements

Efficient recovery of recyclable materials from various waste streams like commercial & industrial or even domestic collections is one of the greatest challenges in the recycling industry for ensuring a sustainable circular economy. The range of materials found in the waste is diverse and consists primarily of various plastics, composite materials, organic materials such as wood, paper and green waste, mineral fractions and elements of iron and non-ferrous metals.
