Tomra - Tomra Sorting Recycling

Når man leser det nedenforstående går tankene like mye i retning magi som industri. Tomra sorterer alt. Her handler det om aluminium. Man kan trygt glede seg til alt som kommer fra dette selskapet i overskuelig fremtid. "Very strong growth" var forøvrig beskrivelsen Tomras meget nøkterne og svært edruelige CEO Stefan Ranstrand brukte for å beskrive status innen Tomra Sorting Recycling under Q2 2018 presentasjonen torsdag 19.juli.


TOMRA to spotlight X-TRACT and LIBS technologies at Aluminium 2018 Exhibition

Sensor-based sorting technologies can help increase the worldwide supply of aluminum while enhancing sustainability

July 25, 2018

TOMRA Sorting Recycling will showcase its sensor-based sorting technologies at Aluminium 2018, the world trade fair and conference, at Messe Düsseldorf, Germany, from October 9-11, 2018. TOMRA's exhibition stand will spotlight the company's X-TRACT machine (shown above), which separates valuable materials from metal waste, and its state-of-the-art LIBS technology, which accurately sorts and separates different aluminum wrought alloys.

Aluminium 2018 is expected to attract more than 27,000 visitors from 100 countries and will share latest insights into everything from aluminum production to processing, finished goods and recycling. TOMRA can be found on Hall 11, stand no. 11|54. The company's technical experts will be available during all three days of the event to answer visitors' questions.

TOMRA's participation at Aluminium 2018 highlights how the company provides technical solutions to two of the industry's biggest challenges: with global production of aluminum pushed to an all-time high because of the increasing need for light metals for energy transition and transportation, recycling can help meet demand for the material; and with intensifying pressures for sustainability, recycling improves resource conservation.

Frank van de Winkel, TOMRA Sorting Business Development Manager Metals, said: "High levels of aluminum production plus the high accuracy of modern alloy-sorting techniques make it more and more worthwhile to unlock the value from secondary materials that would otherwise be lost. What's more, re-using scrap metal is an environmentally friendly practice which demonstrates the industry's commitment to sustainability. For these reasons we're looking forward to discussing our technologies at Aluminium 2018 with recyclers, smelters and remelters."

TOMRA's X-TRACT separates heavy metals from aluminum alloys with such high precision - regardless of the materials' size, moisture, or surface pollution level - that it achieves aluminum purities of 98-99%, even from a varied mix and with small grain sizes. This technology employs an electric X-ray tube so that broad-band radiation can penetrate the material to provide spectral absorption information. This data is then measured with a highly sensitive X-ray camera to identify the atomic density of the material, regardless of its thickness. Material is sorted into high- and low-density fractions with TOMRA's DUOLINE® sensor technology using two independent sensor lines with different spectral sensitivities.

TOMRA's LIBS-based sensor sorting technology extends the options for the use of scrap- and secondary-aluminum. By employing a dynamic laser which can monitor the entire width of the belt, this has the unique advantage of eliminating the complex and costly need to separate materials into single lanes. This enables the sorting and separation of different aluminum wrought alloys with unprecedentedly high levels of efficiency, achieving sorting accuracies of 99% purity (or greater) with high throughputs of three to seven tons per hour.

Aluminium 2018 will also be an opportunity for recyclers, smelters and remelters to learn how TOMRA customizes technical solutions to fit customer requirements. The combination of state-of-the-art technologies and personalized technical support explains why TOMRA has become one of the leading suppliers of sorting units in North America, Europe and Asia. Over 60 TOMRA units have been sold worldwide for the separation of different scrap sources, such as taint tabor from (old) sheet scrap, extrusion profile scrap, used beverage-can scrap, and production scrap and new scrap from manufacturing waste

In appeals to the acting governor Sergei Morozov, residents of the Astrakhan region often raise problems with garbage disposal. Today, during his working visit, the head of the region inspected the work of the waste sorting complex and the landfill for the disposal of solid waste.

The new investor - Clean Environment LLC - came to the waste sorting complex last fall. In 2018, 96.5 tons of waste were processed. For the first quarter of this year - 50 thousand tons.

“Currently, the plant’s capacity is 200 thousand tons of recycled waste. But by the end of this year it will increase by more than two times and will amount to 500 thousand tons, ”Rem Vartanov, director of the Astrakhan branch of EcoCenter LLC, told about the plans of Sergey Morozov. “The whole Astrakhan region is in our area of ​​activity.”

In April, the company begins modernization. In order not to stop the waste sorting conveyor, it was decided to carry out in two stages. First, completely dismantle the old and install new equipment on the first line. Then go to the second. Both lines will be upgraded with Tomra-type optical separators, which will speed up waste sorting.

Har vært inne på dette flere ganger før. Flere og flere nasjoner i Sør-Øst-Asia stanser nå all import av blandet og urent avfall fra verdens rike nasjoner. I Australia er det, som mange andre steder full krise når det gjelder plast, etter at Kina lukket døren for import av plastavfall 01.01.2018.. Krisen blir bare verre og verre for australierne nå som India og Indonesia gjør det samme. "Bottom line" er selvsagt at verdens rike nasjoner fremover MÅ håndtere sitt eget avfall selv, om man vil eller ikke. Tomra sitter på løsningene når det gjelder teknologien for både innsamling (panteteknologi) og sortering.

Indonesia and India’s crackdown on waste could be the final straw for Australian recycling

Australia’s recycling crisis is about to worsen as both India and Indonesia follow China’s lead and refuse to accept our contaminated waste.

Indonesia and India took a combined 34 per cent of our total waste exports in December last year, with Indonesia ranked our second-largest waste destination (19 per cent) and India our fourth (13 per cent).

But both countries have recently vowed to enforce tight restrictions around what types of recyclable waste they will accept from us.

This month, India said its recycling facilities had reached capacity and would therefore no longer be able to accept Australia’s solid plastic waste.

It also promised to completely phase out single-use plastics by 2022, echoing the European Union’s decision this week to ban single-use plastics by 2021.

Adding to the strain on Australia’s recycling facilities was a shock announcement this week by our second-biggest waste importer: Indonesia.

From April 1, the Indonesian government will inspect every single piece of scrap paper to make sure all of it is clean before accepting it.

Previously, it had only inspected one in 10 waste paper items, meaning contaminated waste or general rubbish sent by Australia could easily slip through customs.

Indonesian inspection agency Sucofindo sent a notice to exporters on March 22 saying Indonesian customs had found too many “discrepancies in the importation of waste paper” and would now inspect 100 per cent of items.

Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia chief executive Gayle Sloan said Indonesia’s crackdown on waste paper meant Australian households needed to be extra careful about what they put in their recycling bins.

“Any recyclable that’s not clean and dry won’t be accepted anymore,” Ms Sloan said.

“Clean out any oil in takeaway boxes and make sure there are no food scraps left in them.”

However, she also said that while it was important for households to do their bit and recycle properly, Australia’s recycling crisis would only get worse if the government kept trying to offload our rubbish to other countries.

“The only sustainable long-term response for this is for the government to invest in our own re-manufacturing facilities … so we can put products back out to the market and say, ‘This is made with Australian recyclable content’,” Ms Sloan said.

“All we’ve been doing is moving our waste around, and at some point the music stops and there are no more chairs to sit on.

“This problem won’t go away without industry and government working together and finding real solutions.”

Waste deposit return company Reloop’s Pacific director Robert Kelmann said the Asian powerhouses’ tough new recycling rules “really reinforced the need for Australia to build an ability to get clean, recyclable material”.

“No one really wants this material and that’s what the world is showing, it’s so contaminated that no one can really use it,” Mr Kelmann said.

“We need to set up a clean flow of materials. China and India have been a dumping ground for waste.”

Circularity is tradition at Paro

Specialist in the processing of construction-related wastes Paro is expanding this year considerably. The location in Amsterdam doubles this year in size and a seaworthy quay is built for access to the global waste and commodity market. It Also allows the company to build a second sorting system.

"There renewed a bright future", says Paro-owner Gerard Panda. "We are growing hard, entirely in line with our circular tradition. This year we double our location in Amsterdam. In The coming years we are developing this location to the central cluster in the Amsterdam Metropolitan area for storage and high-quality recycling. In Addition to the already existing reworking of construction and demolition waste, we are committed to broadening and deepening our portfolio. Further sustainability of concrete and the production of alternative fuels from residual waste are some examples of this. To This End, we have set up an extensive investment programme, which for 2019 includes the construction of a second separation plant, a seaport quay and the construction of more than 7 hectares of additional port terrain. Space, capacity and embracing new methods and techniques are in our vision core conditions for high-quality recycling. "


Although the usual processing of sorting residue and dry industrial waste streams is still incinerated, these streams contain potentially many reusable raw materials. In Addition, the combustion value of sorting residue (much) is higher than where combustion furnaces are designed. Enough reason to get started with this.

However, the efficient recovery of these raw materials is technically and economically not easy. For this reason, Paro has, together with its permanent suppliers Banner and TOMRA, now developed an after-separation installation, which makes it technically possible to sort out monostromen on an industrial scale, which can then be used as raw materials Reused. Paro contributes in the first place to the longer keeping of valuable raw materials in the chain. Moreover, a side effect is that the heating value is significantly lower after this separation, resulting in better thermally processed residual waste. Paro consciously opts for separation of dry mixed waste materials. This leads to better quality monostromen, which promotes a higher quality reuse.

The Heart of the new Nascheidingsinstallatie consists of nine optical separators, some of which are equipped with laser detection. To make these machines work optimally, the waste is routed to ballistic separators via a presort drum. For the necessary splitting into a light (2D) and a heavy (3D) fraction. After all, Magnets and Eddy Current separators complete the whole, by sorting the existing metals. To achieve the desired throughput of 1 million cubic meters per year, the line is double. The installation is currently under construction and is expected to be put into service at The end of February.

Seaport Quay and Terrain expansion

In Order to be able to become the recycling hub in the metropolitan region of Amsterdam, sufficient space and access to water via the North Sea Canal is indispensable. Paro is sorting this out for this year by putting in a seaworthy quay and adding more than 7 hectares of terrain to its current location, so that the total
size of the site will soon be 13.5 hectares. "This has laid the foundations for the future of Paro in Amsterdam," says Panda. "The Quay is our access to the global waste and commodity market, while the location – after enlargement – offers ample opportunities for local storage, reprocessing and marketing of the flows from the metropolitan region. The Best of two worlds so said ".

Beundringsverdig fortsett det gode research arbeidet!

Vær klar over at Tomra er vel etablert, respektert og i kraftig fremgang innen alle selskapets forretningsområder innen det gigantiske kinesiske markedet nå som vi gasser på mot Q1 2019 tirsdag (7.mai). Her er det resirkulering av enorme mengder elektronisk avfall som står i fokus. Avfall som ikke bare er avfall, men som også inneholder verdifulle ressurser av høy kommersiell verdi. Kina er verdens No 1 når det gjelder å generere slikt avfall. Kolossal mulighet for Tomra dette altså ettersom vi snakker om å bygge en resirkuleringsindustri for håndtering av elektronisk avfall nærmest fra "scratch" i folkerike Kina.

Taurang Sensing Sorting Technology Improves Electronic Waste Recycling Rate

2019-04-29 10:55

With the improvement of people's living standards and the increase of spending power, most cities in China are suffering from the “garbage siege”, and e-waste pollution is a heavier topic than urban domestic waste because it has a deeper impact on the natural environment. ,farther. But at the same time there are many high-value components in it, and it is of great significance to properly handle e-waste.

The growth and harm of e-waste

According to the 2017 Global E-Waste Monitoring Report released by the International Telecommunication Union, China has become the world's largest producer of e-waste and waste. Chinese people eliminate more than 100 million computers, 40 million TVs, 20 million air conditioners and 10 million refrigerators each year. In 2017, China's total output of electronic waste reached 7.2 million tons. It is expected to grow to 27 million tons by 2030.

Where are these e-wastes? There are data showing that more than 80% of e-waste is in the form of smashing streets and lanes, and eventually flows into illegal dismantling channels, which not only cannot effectively utilize the resources, but also bring serious environmental pollution. E-waste contains a lot of heavy metal elements, including lead, chromium and mercury. If not handled properly, a lot of harmful substances will seep into the ground, causing serious pollution of soil and groundwater.

Garbage, misplaced resources

E-waste is rich in precious metals such as gold, silver and copper. It is estimated that the gold content of a ton of smart phones is 70 times that of a ton of gold. E-waste also has a variety of recyclable plastics. Even the lead, mercury and other substances contained in e-waste are poisonous, but if they are handled properly, they will not only harm the environment, but also be reused as resources. The recycling rate of e-waste is still very low in China. Therefore, the recycling of e-waste is a “blue sea” with rich treasures.

In this regard, the experience of Japan is very worth learning. Japan has long advocated the recycling of e-waste, and has strictly enacted legislation to promote the recycling of e-waste. It also strengthens the community's resource recovery and environmental awareness through some very meaningful activities. For example, at the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the gold, silver and bronze medals that athletes receive will be made from metal that is recycled and reclaimed from e-waste. The significance is extraordinary: e-waste can also shine!

Automatic sensing sorting technology to improve the recycling efficiency of electronic waste

The difficulty in recycling e-waste is to separate the components of different materials separately and ensure the purity of each recycled component. At present, there is an efficient automated sorting technology that can solve the various challenges of electronic waste sorting and recycling:

Recycling all types of metals: The difficulty in recycling e-waste is to separate the different components and increase the purity of the final product. Taurang's FINDER sorting equipment can separate and recycle various non-ferrous metals and stainless steels. It has been widely used in the domestic scrap metal recycling industry and has been unanimously recognized by customers. Taurang's newly released laser multi-dimensional inspection module can be integrated into the FINDER sorting machine to make its performance even more powerful: it can remove black rubber and plastic, and further improve the purity of the metal after sorting.

Elimination of bromide-containing flame retardant materials: electronic waste contains 3% to 60% of plastics, of which about 30% of plastics contain flame retardants. These flame retardants usually appear in the form of bromide, which is very polluting to the environment. serious. Taurang can extract these substances from waste electronic waste through the efficient combination of AUTOSORT and X-TRACT sorting machines, so that the sorted electronic waste meets the requirements of the RoHS directive, and the bromine content is less than 1000ppm. After sorting by AUTOSORT and X-TRACT, it is possible to remove up to 98% of BFR-containing plastics from mixed input waste, while also enabling efficient recycling of non-toxic plastics.

Taurang is committed to promoting the recycling of various wastes to minimize pollution. With rich industry experience and leading technology, Tao Lang is willing to work together with all walks of life to solve the problem of pollution and recycling of e-waste, leaving a pure land for future generations.

St. John’s, Newfoundland-based Newco Metal & Auto Recycling has commissioned an M6090 modular automobile shredder plant and nonferrous separation system from Buffalo, New York-based Wendt Corp.

The installation represents Newco’s first automobile shredder and offers new market opportunities and economic advantages for processing the company’s scrap metal, according to a news release.


After purchasing a shredder from another manufacturer, Newco initially came to Wendt for a downstream to pair with it.

“The shredder that I previously purchased, we were getting terrible service from, and we decided not to go ahead with it,” Anstey states. “We decided to buy the full shredding system and full downstream from Wendt because they were giving us great service and answering the questions that I needed answered. Wendt was prepared and willing to spend the time with me to select a shredder and a downstream that best suited my needs.”

Newco’s Wendt M6090 automobile shredder features a Bowe Disc Rotor and 2,500-horsepower DC motor. The shredding plant also includes an infeed conveyor, dual magstand with electromagnetic drums, ballistic separator and modular design features, including a prefabricated motor enclosure and platform, remote prewired e-house, control pulpit and structural steel frame that allows the shredder to be installed on a flat concrete pad. Their equipment purchase also includes a nonferrous recovery system containing two eddy current separators to recover aluminum and three Tomra Finders to recover insulated copper wire and stainless steel.

Edited by Kelly Maile

Stamford, Connecticut-based Van Dyk Recycling Solutions is discussing the opening of its newly operational test center, Norwalk, Connecticut, at WasteExpo. The material test facility features a 18,000-square-foot simulation system with two processing lines capable of replicating in-plant operations and an 18,000-square-foot receiving and storage facility for material to be tested.

“When we began this project, we did so with a commitment to support our customers,” says Erik van Dijk, the company’s executive vice president. “The test facility assists machinery specification and purchasing decisions.”

Pieter van Dijk adds, “We took a very long-term view on this project. The technology center represents a unique facility that our customers will benefit from for a very long time. It is very much an investment in their success.”

The facility’s processing line boasts two separate infeed conveyors that feed different lines armed with four Tomra optical sorters, each with different technology, various screens, an elliptical separator and an air system.

“This is the largest testing facility of its kind in the world,” Pieter van Dijk says. “It’s designed to allow our customers the opportunity to test any equipment configuration on their material to precisely know the results that can be achieved.”

The facility’s 18,000-square-foot receiving and storage facility “allows customers, brand owners and others wishing to conduct tests to have their material delivered to the test center,” the company says. Once materials are on site, tests can be run to demonstrate results.

Typical tests might be to understand how sorted office paper (SOP) can be made from mixed paper; the recoverability of certain consumer packaged goods packaging from the recycling stream; to validate the purity levels of PEF fuel products; to perform glass cleanup from contaminants and many other possibilities, Van Dyk says.

TOMRA Highlights Optical Sorter Connectivity, Increased Purity Rates

TOMRA SORTING RECYLING is unveiling information about its new cloud-based program that connects customers’ optical sorting equipment. “Show attendees visiting TOMRA booth #2241 will be among the first to learn more about how new TOMRA Insight unleashes the power of process data to transform sorting from an operational process into a strategic management tool, providing fact-based decision-making at every step of the value and production chain,” according to the company.

TOMRA Insight provides near real-time data, securely collected in the cloud, that is retrieved on desktops and mobile devices, anywhere and at any time, via a secure connection and user-friendly web interface. By providing digital metrics like throughput, material size and distribution, acceptance and rejection rates and more, TOMRA Insight gives equipment companies the operating data necessary to optimize sorting performance and reduce machine downtime.

“Our revolutionary TOMRA Insight platform unlocks the true power of data, so our customers have the necessary tools to monitor and optimize their sorting processes, improving profit potential,” said Carlos Manchado Atienza, regional director Americas for TOMRA Sorting Inc., in a statement. “Insight will allow us to enhance service and maintenance schedules, offer predictive analytics for components and develop optimal machine sorting configurations, technologies and applications.”

SHARP EYE—Deinking and Plastics

TOMRA Sorting specialists also have the latest information on the company’s SHARP EYE technology that helps recycling operations increase recovery of recyclable paper and sort single-layer PET trays from PET bottles. SHARP EYE technology features a breakthrough enhancement of its FLYING BEAM technology, expanding the sorting capabilities of the AUTOSORT machine. Featuring a larger lens for higher light intensity, SHARP EYE detects the finest molecular differences in materials flowing down the recycling line, according to the company.

The combination of TOMRA’s AUTOSORT with SHARP EYE technology allows the machine to be calibrated to identify materials suitable for deinking, making recovery rates as high as 96 percent possible in one step, added the company. For plastics recycling, operations can calibrate SHARP EYE to detect difficult-to-distinguish material properties, so it can differentiate between monolayer and multilayer PET trays from PET bottles to achieve higher and more consistent quality for new plastic food-grade packaging.

“As recovery standards become increasingly more stringent, TOMRA delivers innovative equipment and technology solutions that drive increases in material purity rates and optimize sorting efficiency,” added Atienza. “We invite all WasteExpo delegates to our exhibit to discuss their application challenges and how TOMRA’s full range of recycling solutions, including new TOMRA Insight and SHARP EYE, can help meet those needs.”
