Germany – Sensor-based sorting technologies have come a long way in recent years. And yet, stricter quality demands regarding recyclables at a time of decreasing ore grades is requiring further progress to be made. But which innovation will be the next game-changer? And what are the areas of application? The Sensor-based Sorting & Control Conference, to be held in the German city of Aachen on March 6 and 7, will aim to answer questions such as these.
The 8th edition of the Aachen event will offer insights into the future of recycling technologies, including X-ray, LIBS sorting, 3D laser triangulation, shape recognition and advanced multi-sensor setups.
More and more recyclers are turning to such cutting-edge solutions to boost the separation of materials that could not previously be separated.
Implementation of such powerful systems can increase product quality while reducing losses ‘at same or even lower costs’, thus boosting the overall efficiency of recycling operations, observes event organiser RWTH Aachen University.
The conference will highlight best practices in the sorting sector, as well as advancements in process control, sensor development and data analysis.
A wide range of materials will be considered, including plastics, metals and valuable minerals. The event will also include networking lunches and a networking dinner on March 6 to enable plant operators, scientists, manufacturers and other industry stakeholders to exchange know-how and discuss business prospects.
