Recovered Paper SORTing with Innovative Technologies

SORT IT

The concept of this project is the development of new and improved sensor and measurement technologies for recovered paper sorting. Automatic identification units will be developed and integrated into the sorting processes that provide optimal measurement conditions matching the demands for separation.
Source of funds:
European
Scopes: Waste, energy and water
Lines research: Sustainability
With respect to initial composition of recovered papers to be sorted and specifications of the customers (recycled paper producers), new concepts for the sorting process will be developed. The developed technology and concepts will undergo evaluation and optimisation in industrial paper production. 

Extensive life cycle studies will deliver detailed information on the impacts of the new sorting strategies and quantify the improvement achieved. This information is important for a successful dissemination of the developed technology. This technology is a key for increased eco-efficiency and strengthened European industrial competitiveness in the field of recovered paper processing.

OBJETIVES
  • To enable sustainable and cost effective paper recovery at higher than 95% yield of all recyclable paper and board grades;
  • To provide tailor made recovered paper for the best possible re-use in paper & board products.
