Tomra looks to ‘transform’ CIS recycling sector

Russia – Tomra Sorting Solutions has created a subsidiary in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and established a Moscow office in a bid to boost its presence in the region.

Tomra’s new office in Russia was revealed at this year’s WasteTech trade show, held in the country’s capital from May 26 to 28. This new foothold will enable the sorting technology specialist to tap into a market of ‘huge potential’, said Tomra’s vice president Tom Eng at the opening ceremony.

‘The market for sensor-based sorting of recyclable materials in this region is still young and evolving. Our leading technologies allow customers to implement the economical all-in-one bin principle and daily waste collection, meaning they can reclaim valuable materials effectively and efficiently out of mixed municipal solid waste,’ Eng notes.  
Tomra Sorting Solutions’ new subsidiary will be managed by Jörg Rathmann, the company’s managing director in the CIS. ‘I’m excited by the opportunity to further develop Tomra’s presence in the CIS,’ he states. ‘We believe we can have a transformative impact upon the way waste is managed throughout the states.’
