Today, sorting and recycling centres face major challenges. The field is in complete turmoil because the rules of the game have changed dramatically over a short period of time.
On the one hand, tighter regulations on waste disposal and incineration by applying preventive measures to divert as much waste as possible from landfill sites add pressure on sorting centres and thereby increase the amount of material to be processed.
On the other hand, the market, particularly on the Chinese side, is tightening its requirements in terms of the quality of the materials recovered, thereby reducing market opportunities. Such a difficult environment requires local companies to improve the performance of their sorting processes in order to optimize the quality of their finished products.
