TOMRA Recycling designs and manufactures sensor-based sorting technologies for the recycling and waste management industry. More than 7,400 of our systems are installed in 100 countries around the world.
TOMRA Recycling has been a frontrunner in the global wood recycling sector for more than 10 years, and we are the first sensor-based sorting solutions provider with a dedicated team for the wood recycling segment which comprises a newly appointed segment manager, highly skilled waste wood application specialists and service key account managers.
Thanks to our state-of-the-art sensor-based sorting technologies and well-established partnerships with wood-based panel manufacturers, we are helping to maximise wood waste recycling and the use of recycled content in the manufacture of new wood-based products. Our aim is to drive further developments in waste wood recycling through innovative technology and consultancy support to improve industry processes.
We offer industry-leading solutions to separate non-processed wood and processed wood from complex mixed waste streams. Firstly, our high-throughput X-TRACT unit removes impurities such as inert materials, metals and glass using x-ray transmission (XRT) technology, delivering outstanding purity levels for secondary raw materials. Then, alongside our X-TRACT unit, we also offer GAIN, our state-of-the-art optical sorter with integrated deep learning technology to separate waste wood into different material grades. Available as an add-on for the company’s high-performing AUTOSORT® unit, GAIN is trained to detect, analyse and separate non-processed wood (wood A) and processed wood (wood B). Moreover, it identifies and fully separates the MDF found in processed wood streams, therefore producing individual wood fractions of the highest possible quality for use in the industrial-scale manufacture of superior quality chipboards and MDF boards.
As our mechanics, sensors and software are developed in-house, customers benefit from fully aligned machines and optimally-performing systems, enabling them to increase their overall yield and profit.
