TOMRA E-Book: A Practical Guide to Meeting China's National Sword for Recycling Firms(II)
Jun. 25, 2018
As a waste sorting equipment manufacturer, TOMRA Sorting Recycling has
published an e-book containing advice on how to meet the tough new rules for
sending recyclable materials to China.
MRF upgrades – the sensible solution
The Norwegian manufacturer said that a better solution is to upgrade the
recycling circuit either by adding modern technologies to the existing recycling
configuration or by constructing a new facility.
TOMRA also said that for zurik and zorba non-ferrous products, scrap
operations can attain National Sword purity levels with the combined
technologies of X-TRACT and COMBISENSE machines. By passing zorba through an
X-Ray Transmission unit to separate aluminium from heavy metals, X-TRACT is
claimed to achieve aluminium purities of 98-99%.
“TOMRA’s e-book addresses this challenge and shows that the necessary waste
sorting equipment already exist. Investing in new technology will enable
businesses to comply with tougher new regulations, whether they come from China
or elsewhere in the world. What’s more, customers will pay recycling businesses
a higher price for a higher quality product,” he concluded.
