The Max-AI AQC (Autonomous Quality Control) has been selected for recognition as a part of the Association of Plastic Recyclers' (APR) 2018 Plastics Recycling Showcase. The Max-AI AQC was launched in 2017 by Eugene, Oregon-based Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) and Nashville, Tennessee-based National Recovery Technologies (NRT). The selection was announced during a recent APR Technical Forum, held February 12, in conjunction with the Plastics Recycling Conference in Nashville. NRT President Matthias Erdmannsdoerfer presented at the forum, and earlier in the day conference attendees visited NRT's headquarters to see live demonstrations of the Max-AI AQC.
