STEINERT’S UniSort BlackEye offers the possibility to efficiently recover recyclates from fractions with a high proportion of dark plastics. This sensor-based sorting machine has the ability to classify plastics according to their polymer group categorization such as PE, PP, PVC and styrenes, rather than their color. The UniSort BlackEye is not only for black materials - it can detect any color.
STEINERT is a pioneer in the application of hyper spectral imaging (HSI) technology and utilizes this technology to approach the challenges of sorting and recognizing dark objects according to type with the UniSort BlackEye, delivering a sustainable and cost effective plastic recovery solution.
This latest technology from STEINERT enables black polymers to have a new lease of life. The UniSort BlackEye can bring this material back into the loop and increase the recycling rates. Recycled plastics can now be turned into potentially higher quality, higher value products which can be used instead of the creation of virgin plastic when manufacturing new goods. This can only benefit the environment as well as enhancing the financial viability of mixed plastics recovery and recycling.
