Product: Recyclable Polymer Sorter

Category: Environmental

Innovator: Marcus Cook

Description:
The Recyclable Polymer Sorter will sort user selectable polymers from a mixed recycling stream or even a stream of rubbish. One system uses air, the other a robotic arm fitted over an existing conveyor. Both systems use a digital camera to identify size, shape, location and speed of bottles and a Near Infra Red Spectrometer to identify the polymer. Both systems are automatic and designed to withstand harsh recycling depot environments.

Unique Benefits:

  • Purity - removes human error from the process
  • Economical - machine costs recovered in 6 months
  • Robust - designed for harsh recycling depots

Status of Innovation: Both of the Recyclable Polymer Sorters have been operated successfully at several recycling centres in Victoria. The product is at launch stage
