Sensor-Enabled Sorting Systems to Dominate the UK Markets

The UK is demanding more sensor-oriented sorting devices since the waste management firms and local authorities are concentrated towards the advancement of sorting systems as well as the improvement of standard and efficiency of their output. The installations comprise commercial and industrial (C&I) sorting plants, programmed Materials Recycling Facilities and plastic retrieval sites.

Titech, a sensor-enabled sorting system provider, stated that the company has supplied over 200 sorting devices in the UK till now and has delivered the kit to the Viridor-owned West Sussex-based MRF, Luton-based Cawleys for processing C&I waste and to the latest Hemswell-based AWS Eco Plastics for sorting bottles.

The demand and applications for the sensor-enabled sorting devices are recently being studied, experimenting on the potentiality of the test systems to sort and retrieve materials from the wastes collected from construction and demolition (C&D) sites.

According to Titech, the systems have also been deployed for the derivation of inert elements from organic waste materials preceding its utilization in anaerobic digestion (AD) processes.

This particular application of the sorting system has been utilized in a Spain-oriented AD treatment facility for sorting the inert elements, and thus it helped enhancing the efficiency of the plant and has lowered the maintenance cost of the device.
