Bühler: Sortex Z+ for Adige Ambiente

The introduction of high quality color sorting technology has enabled plastics processor Adige Ambiente, Brescia, Italy, to achieve significantly higher value yields, for around 35,000 t of recycled PP/PE (Poly-propylene/Polyethylene) that it processes each year.

Adige Ambiente’s main business is grinding and sorting industrial plastics waste, to produce a recycled product to sell to plastic product manufacturers. However, the recycled PP/PE specialist identified the need for effective color separation and grouping technology in order to achieve a higher value, color sorted, end product.

Bühler AG, Uzwil, Switzerland, provided an optical sorting solution, whilst ensuring maximum yield. Bühler installed and commissioned four Sortex Z+ bichromatic machines, to sort high capacities of mixed HDPE regrind into four color groups. The system uses state of the art, custom designed, bichromatic color sorting camera technology that is designed to sort mixed color PP/PE into four precisely color separated products. This enables Adige Ambiente to deliver a pure and consistant end product of the highest possible value.
