Larger semi-automated waste plants can increase throughput, improve performance, provide better outputs and ultimately divert more waste than ever before away from landfill.
Advanced Air Separation Technology is becoming more popular as it effectively separates heavy waste such as concrete and brick from lighter waste such as card, paper, and plastic. This first stage separation makes it much easier to further separate this lighter waste into specific waste products either by hand or using Optical Sorting technology.
Cameras, scanners, and data accurately identify the chosen waste product and use powerful air jets to remove these products from all other waste. Highly effective and extremely accurate, optical sorters are becoming more commonplace in non- C&D waste sorting but are also appearing in some C&D sorting facilities.
