TOMRA Sorting will return to Birmingham’s NEC this September, Hall 17, Stand H19-G18, to take part in the biggest event in the UK’s recycling calendar, RWM (10 – 12 September 2013). The recycling industry specialists will highlight the very latest innovations in sensor-based sorting technology, with a strong focus on commercial and industrial (C&I) waste management.
Visitors to TOMRA Sorting’s stand (Hall 17, Stand H19-G18) will be able to find out more about the company’s innovative approach to some of the key challenges facing the UK’s C&I recycling industry, including:
• Separating and recovering valuable fractions from C&I trommel and screen fines
• Identifying a long-term, sustainable alternative to RDF as a waste treatment process
• Recovering high quality, high value end materials from Zorba (shredded non-ferrous metals originating from End-of-Life Vehicles or WEEE)
• Reducing copper contaminants in ferrous scrap (including copper armature known as meatballs)
RWM will also provide a platform for TOMRA to showcase its TITECH autosort 4 solution with specialists Birds Recycling Solutions, Dynamic Handling Systems Ltd and The Compressor Specialists coming together to demonstrate the fully operational kit for the first time at the show. Visitors will be able to see live demonstrations of TITECH autosort 4 in the show’s outside area at stand OA151. The TITECH autosort 4 is suitable for a variety of applications, including C&I and MSW, MDR MRFs and can recover a wide array of high quality, profitable fractions from different waste streams, including packaging, paper, household waste and plastic.
Jonathan Clarke, country manager at TOMRA Sorting, comments: "The UK’s C&I recycling sector is really taking off, but this complex waste stream is not without its challenges. In the past year, we have significantly increased our customer portfolio in this sector and now work closely with a number of the UK’s most advanced C&I MRFs. This experience, coupled with our industry-leading sensor-based sorting solutions, makes us ideally placed to provide guidance to visitors of this year’s RWM. We would encourage visitors to come and find out more about the commercial, environmental and operational benefits offered by sensor-based sorting. We’re also delighted that delegates will be able to see live demonstrations of the TITECH autosort 4 in the outside area. Its abilities have to be seen to be believed and a video simply wouldn’t do it justice!"
