Andreas Jäger, Global Sales Director Waste Recycling, and Hendrik Beel, Managing Director of STEINERT UniSort GmbH, will be hosting the online event. Janine Mehner will lead through the one-hour format of STEINERT’s second live stream event. Andreas Jäger and Hendrik Beel will provide an overview of the sorting machines used. They will present a number of particularly challenging sorting problems in commercial and demolition waste, together with technical explanations of the solution and a live Q&A session for viewers.
The separation of wood, plastic such as PE (polyethylene) and PP (polypropylene), minerals, black objects or materials that tend to float such as foils or paper play a role. For the post-consumer package sector, Hendrik Beel will demonstrate how AI-based sorting programs can be used to define harmful fractions. Artificial Intelligence detects materials, which compromise the sorted product, and can separate them (such as silicone cartridges), maintaining the quality of the PE fraction.
The event will also introduce the latest findings in how post-consumer packages are separated into the relevant groups of recyclable materials, namely polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, black plastics, PET bottles and PET trays, drink cartons, PE/PP films, paper and cardboard.
