Air Separator

Automated Sorting / Optical Sorting

Optical sorting is a high tech sensor-based method of sorting waste. This automated method of sorting delivers clean material fractions at significantly higher recovery and purity rates when compared to traditional manual methods of sorting, resulting in increased value for your material fractions.

Our main partners for optical sorting solutions is Steinert and Tomra who are both renowned for the high quality and performance of their products.


  • A multifunctional sorting system to recover a wide range of material fractions from different waste streams, looking for enhanced material information and colour in combination.
  • Innovative technology – selection of between different sensors
  • Combined NIR and VIS sensors into a universal modular sorting system to meet a wide variety of needs, such as recognizing print media by CMYK spectral analysis.
  • High purity – up to 99%*
  • High efficiency – up to 97%*
  • High precision – even the smallest of particles are recognized
  • High throughput performance – 30* metric tons and more per hour, depends on application and material
  • Low operating costs
