Tomra Sorting returns to Birmingham, U.K.’s NEC event centre this September to demonstrate its autosort 4 at the RWM event set for 10-12 Sept. 2013. Representatives from Tomra also will highlight the company’s latest innovations in sensor-based sorting technology, with a strong focus on commercial and industrial (C&I) waste management.

The company says visitors to its stand (Hall 17, Stand H19-G18) will be able to learn 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 nonferrous metals originating from End-of-Life Vehicles or WEEE)
•    Reducing copper contaminants in ferrous scrap (including copper armature known as meatballs)

The company reports it also will 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.  Tomra says the autosort 4 is suitable for a variety of applications, including C&I, municipal solid waste (MSW) and mixed dried recycling (MDR) materials recovery facilities. The autosort 4 is designed to recover a wide array of high quality, profitable fractions from different waste streams, including packaging, paper, household waste and plastic, Tomra says.
