TOMRA Sorting Recycling has introduced AUTOSORT COLOR, a new machine which works in combination with AUTOSORT LASER to separate glass from municipal solid waste (MSW) with unprecedented effectiveness. Even though it is common to collect glass waste separately, a significant amount of recoverable glass remains mixed-in with MSW from households and businesses. AUTOSORT COLOR achieves purity rates greater than 95% at high throughput rates, even when input materials are wet, dusty or dirty.

AUTOSORT in action
As the most flexible sorting system within TOMRA Sorting Recycling’s product family, the AUTOSORT combines detection of color and enhanced material information resulting in a multifunctional system that optimizes effectiveness across a wide range applications.
X-TRACT, TOMRA Sorting's metal recovery system
Using the X-ray transmission technology, TOMRA Sorting´s X-TRACT identifies contents in the sorting material independent of their color and pollution. With X-ray sorting technology, the X-TRACT can separate materials based on their atomic density and is so able to separate material concentrates into different material types.
Heralding a new era of high-precision sorting, the AUTOSORT FLAKE combines color detection and enhanced material information to maximize the recovery of high-quality recycled products which discerning markets now demand.
Choosing TOMRA sorting equipment has repeatedly proven to be a profitable decision for their customers. Whether in the packaging, paper, municipal solid waste, or plastics businesses on the waste sorting side, or end-of-life vehicles, e-scrap or aluminum re-melters businesses on the metal sorting side, TOMRA Sorting´s optical scanners provide excellent results – and increase customer profitability.
