From February 28 to March 2, TOMRA welcomed industry partners, customers and media representatives to celebrate the opening of a second test centre at its headquarters in Mülheim-Kärlich, Germany. The event took place within the framework of the company’s Integrator’s Conference. More than 200 participants from 26 countries joined the two-day event and enjoyed a diverse conference and event program. The second day focused on the extension of the test facilities that marked another milestone in Tomra Recycling Sorting’s long-term goals.
Previously, Tomra’s test centre incorporated both its waste and metal sorting solutions and is one of 8 facilities operated at 7 locations worldwide that give recyclers and plant operators the opportunity to test their materials on Tomra’s sorting machines before making an investment. Tomra itself wants to use the extra space for the development of innovations that can be extensively tested and optimized by specialized teams on-site. The company conducts approximately 650 customers and internal trials each year and anticipates the demand to grow in the future.
