Norwegian recycling technology group Tomra has two stands at the Plastics Recycling Show Europe in Amsterdam on 29-30 March. The exhibition and conference is organised by Crain Communications, publisher of Plastics News Europe.
Tomra was established as a developer of reverse vending equipment and on Stand C30 at PRS Europe, Tomra Collection Solutions will present a selection of reverse vending and compaction solutions. On the stand there will be a live demonstration showcasing the company's T-9 machine with Tomra Flow Technology, which it says is the world's first 360-degree instant recognition system in reverse vending machines.
“Flow Technology's smart anti-fraud features ensure industry-leading security and accuracy, and help defend the integrity of the recycling system,” said Tomra.
Tomra Sorting Solutions, another group business, is showing its technology for sorting plastic waste on Stand C34. The sorting technology can deal with many kinds of plastics combined with any colour, such as transparent polypropylene (PP), white PP, blue PET, red HPDPE or green LDPE film. Tomra said: “Subject to task-specific variables, sorting process outcomes deliver consistent results and outstanding high-end qualities of up to 99.99%.”
Rene Hissink, senior vice-president Western and Southern Europe at Tomra Collection, said: “In order to achieve a true circular economy, the interplay between governments, businesses and the environmental sector is key. So, proper legislation reinforced by state-of-the-art technological solutions supporting the conservation of precious resources are inevitable and essential. PRS 2017 is the ideal platform to bring together experts and partners from different sectors and regions of the world to network and discuss integrated concepts that lead to long-term sustainable solutions, benefiting businesses and the environment.”
