Brazil / Germany – TiTech, the Germany-based specialist in hi-tech sorting technology with a presence in approaching 40 countries, has announced its arrival to the Brazilian market. With an office in São Paulo, the company has technical support in the form of a partnership with Tecborde in Minas Gerais; it plans to expand this support network when the first machines are installed in Brazil.
‘After two years of market research, we believe that Brazil is ready to receive and to deploy this sorting technology for recyclable waste,’ says Carlos Manchado, the company’s Director for the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America. ‘We want to offer the possibility to recycle more and better; this gives value to the public sector, and to the private sector. Especially with the new regulations of the Public Policy of Solid Waste, we will help add value to the processes of waste disposal.’
According to Carina Arita, Sales Manager for TiTech in Brazil, approaches have already started to be made to collection and reclamation of waste as well as street cleaning companies, local government departments and industry associations, and also to the Ministry of the Environment.
Last year, TiTech installed a PET bottle sorting system at bottling and plastic container manufacturer CABELMA in Buenos Aires, Argentina, thus making this the first company in South America to benefit from TiTech’s sensor-based PET waste sorting system at its US$ 23.5 million recycling plant which draws material from municipalities, co-operatives and recyclers. TiTech claims to enjoy a 60% share of the global sensor-based waste sorting market and specialises in research & development.
