SHOW REVIEW | K2019


Tomra develops collection and sorting systems that optimise resource recovery and minimises waste. Its sensor-based sorting solutions – including Auto- sort, Autosort Flake and Innosort Flake – were on show


at K2019. Volker Rehrmann, execu- tive vice president of Tomra Recycling & Mining, said:


“Continuing to use our resources in an unsustainable and inefficient way should

no longer be an option. At Tomra, we continue to develop new sorting solutions.” The Innosort Flake, seen at the show, is a good


example of “positively impacting and purifying the recycling process”, he said. Since its launch earlier this year, it has shown to be a good dual-sorting solution for plastic recovery facilities – sorting plastic fractions of 2-12mm by colour and simulta- neously by polymer types. This means that large amounts of contaminants can be removed – and the potential loss of PET flake material can be


significantly reduced. This all-in-one solution with ultra-high resolution and specialised sensor configuration offers high performance results. “It’s an economically favourable sorting solution


providing a quick return on investment and scalable flexibility,” said the company. The company is also developing ways of further


improving the sorting process. Based on improve- ments in collecting and managing large amounts of data – and the development of artificial intelli- gence – Tomra has developed deep learning software for sensor-based sorting. The software can learn individually from a large amount of collected data, equalling or even surpassing sorting results achieved by humans and typical machines, it says. By combining deep learning models with Tomra’s sorting solutions, objects that could previously not be separated can now be sorted with high purity levels, it claims. “In this regard, deep learning is considered as a


promising approach when it comes to addressing the increasing challenges in waste sorting, such as new waste streams,” said the company. � www.tomra.com
