Commercial & Industrial Waste Sorting
Commercial and Industrial (C&I) waste contains recyclable elements, such as plastics, paper, cardboard, and film. The demand for these materials is rising in commercial and industrial sectors, compared with that for primary resources.
Traditional manual or semi-automated techniques, however, are only able to recover low levels of separate materials from commercial and industrial waste streams.
In contrast, TITECH’s fully adjustable, state-of-the-art, senor-based sorting and recycling systems convert complex and varied commercial and industrial streams into high quality, separated output. The systems also make manual picking unnecessary, thus reducing labor costs and material loss, while increasing the efficiency of commercial waste recycling.
Operationally, through using detection techniques such as near infrared (NIR), x-ray transmission (XRT), visual spectrometers (VIS), color line cameras and metal sensors in combination, the systems offer:
- High recovery rates
- High throughputs
- High purity levels
- Speedy return on investment
- Low running costs
- Advanced recognition capabilities (material, color, atomic density etc)
TITECH commercial waste sorting systems also provide complete future flexibility, through the ability to react quickly and cost-effectively to changes, such as highly variable input streams and new legislation.
Ever-increasing UK industrial landfill taxes only underline the importance of TITECH’s commercial waste recycling technology. This provides inert material elimination of up to 95%, therefore allowing organizations to take advantage of the lower rate applying to the dumping of this waste alone, for example. Traditional commercial waste recycling and sorting methods, on the other hand, lead to large amounts of valuable organic material and inerts having to be landfilled together, at much greater expense.
TITECH’s systems achieve this benefit through the TITECH autosort recycling light materials – such as film, paper and textiles – to produce a high quality refuse-derived fuel, and sorting heavy fractions, such as wood and plastics. After that, the TITECH x-tract identifies and separates glass, stone and ceramics from the fines, based on atomic density measurement.
