At WasteExpo 2021, June 28-30 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, TOMRA Recycling will exhibit and highlight the latest sorting innovations from the company’s new generation AUTOSORT® sensor-based sorting system. As a sponsoring partner of the Sustainability Talks event co-located with WasteExpo, TOMRA will also deliver a presentation on June 30, focusing on recycling’s role in offering ideas and solutions to advance the circular economy.
On exhibit in TOMRA WasteExpo booth #2123, the ultracompact and highly versatile AUTOSORT® excels across a vast range of material sorting applications, including municipal solid waste (MSW). AUTOSORT features multiple technologies, including SHARP EYE and FLYING BEAM®, to deliver high-performance sorting accuracy across all target fractions, including the most complex to sort.
Team members, including TOMRA’s new Regional Director Americas, Ty Rhoad, will also have the latest details on the highly customizable AUTOSORT® SPEEDAIR. This additional component in the TOMRA AUTOSORT® range incorporates speed-controlled, fan-driven air inlets that generate a constant air stream over the conveyor belt to prevent light materials like paper and plastic film from moving, even at belt speeds reaching 19.7 ft/sec (6 m/sec).
The exhibit will also highlight the most recent advancements on AUTOSORT® LASER. Offering significant breakthroughs in efficiency, safety and recovery yields when processing household and commercial waste, AUTOSORT® LASER excels at separating thin, thick or opaque glass from transparent polymers.
Accurate waste sorting and cross-value-chain collaboration drives sustainability, success and solutions. Beginning at 10 a.m. PDT on Wednesday, June 30, Ty Rhoad along with Nick Doyle, TOMRA Recycling’s North America area sales manager, will present, “Recycling’s Role: Talking Big Ideas and Solutions,” during the Sustainability Talks event in Central Hall meeting room #N251.
Rhoad and Doyle will reflect on the current state of the North American recycling industry and explain how advanced mechanical recycling and cross-value-chain collaboration provides a roadmap to greater sustainability. They will also provide specific examples of how recycling operations are implementing advanced mechanical sorting in innovative ways to boost efficiencies, increase purity and reduce the need for manual sorting.
