Tomra Sorting showcases sensor-based waste sorting system at IFAT Africa 2017

Tomra Sorting will feature its latest sorting solutions in Hall 5, Stand 17 (German pavilion). The IFAT Africa 2017 will take place in Johannesburg, South Africa, from September 12 – 14, 2017.

According to Tomra, Staff will be available to share in-depth recycling expertise and discuss sensor-based sorting technologies, which can be used for a wide variety of applications. Tomra Sorting shows its product family and the machines for sorting mixed waste and metal streams.

Through integration of a multifunctional sorting system, such as Autosort, waste management and recycling companies can benefit from increased processing quantities and a higher purity of final recyclables, Tomra quotes. Autosort is capable of handling high throughputs and recovering a wide range of recyclables from mixed streams while scanning for enhanced material information and color in combination. The machine offers according to Tomra also multiple sorting operations, which can be controlled by a simple change in its program. Moreover, the technology requires very low energy consumption and is built to withstand the harshest conditions, such as dirty MRFs and scorching heat.

According to Tomra, recycling companies, municipalities and contractors from countries throughout Africa attend IFAT to increase awareness and take advantage of the enormous potential to improve the current waste and recycling momentum. Addressing the topic of South Africa’s impact on the global circular economy, Tasos Bereketidis, Tomra Sorting’s Regional Director Middle East & Africa, added: “We at Tomra Sorting are proud to share our latest sorting technologies with local companies and governmental representatives in South Africa to support the country-wide mission of reducing waste sent to landfill and improv the way materials are currently recycled. We look forward to welcoming you at our stand at IFAT.”
