Improved sorting of plastic, metal and glass at waste collection sites
SmartSort offers a characterization solution for plastic, metal and glass waste that uses very high frequency radar waves and a learning system based on artificial intelligence.
Installed on the containers at various waste drop-off sites, SmartSort is embedded in the Cliiink® recycling incentive system developed by Terradona. Users who sort their waste correctly receive points that can be converted into vouchers to make purchases from local merchants.
This technology covers various forms of waste
• voluntary drop-off points
• public and private waste disposal solutions
• waste reprocessing plants
