Nick Doyle, Manager – Key Accounts, Bus. Dev. & Process Integration

As an emerging process to the industry, Chemical Recycling of plastics, despite it’s obvious potential, has been challenged by some as counterproductive to cradle-to-cradle production. In reality, it is quite complementary. An innovative contemporary of cradle-to-cradle practices, Chemical Recycling serves as a much-needed solution to ensuring comprehensive supply chain resilience through circularity. Today thanks to Chemical Recycling, we are fortunate to live in a world where technology is no longer a limiting factor when it comes to achieving circularity in plastics. The biggest barrier to overcome however remains to be feedstock purity. As post-consumer resin demand sits at an all-time high, access to clean feedstocks is practically non-existent. With nearly 50 years of experience in sensor-based sorting solutions for plastics recycling, TOMRA continues to lead the way as an innovator and global impact leader. Driven by innovation, TOMRA is helping our recycling partners overcome their feedstock challenges and thrive in the face of adversity.

What attendees will learn:

  1. How TOMRA has evolved beyond just being a sorting solution provider.
  2. The role of sensor-based solutions in advancing the Circular Economy.
  3. What makes Chemical Recycling the missing link to circularity.
  4. The difference between presorting for mechanical recycling vs chemical recycling.
  5. The role of the presort as a process and growth enabler.

Martin Baumann, VP/GM MAAG Americas

Our industry is challenged to evolve into a more circular materials management model. Besides logistics and design for recycling, purpose built systems are required to handle mechanical as well as chemical recycling’s material streams. What are some of the key technology building blocks that are required and taken into consideration for dealing with material streams that are different from today’s virgin materials. The outcome required remains the same – reliable uptime of the machinery and high quality materials that can be converted into new consumer products.

What attendees will learn:

Attendees will learn about how to deal with a variety of recycling material streams and how key
components of recycling plants require technologies that are fine-tuned for the various challenges
posed by contamination and variation in viscosity. Melt Filtration, melt pumps and pelletizing will be

Nathanaël Lortie, President, Eagle Vizion

The recycling industry has been recovering plastic using mechanical and sensor based technology for decades. The challenges are that as technology has evolved, the material to be recycled have evolved even faster with new barriers and co-blends. With the evolution of the various new plastic contaminants and the rapid growth of chemical recycling, it will be important that reclaimers get more information on the inbound stream. To achieve a successful circular economy, where most of the available plastic is recycled a complete image of the inbound stream needs to be known and understood. Eagle Vizion will continue to lead the industry by providing the technology necessary to characterize materials in lab or in process thus making readily available to the reclaimer the data necessary to make swift decisions.

What attendees will learn:

  1. Online analysis tools to qualify material.
  2. How Eagle Vizion’s platforms can evolve with the plastic industry.
  3. How adequate material identification can help resolve downstream issues.

Nikolas Wolf – B.Eng, Regional Sales Manager Sorting Recycling America

Industrial companies are facing the challange of reconciling sustainability and profitability. With our intelligent solutions for material sorting and analysis, we help our customers to ensure that sustainable and high quality production is profitable for people, the environment and Recycling industry.

What attendees will learn:

  1. Flake Sorting: The Challange
  2. Flake Sorting: Sesotec Solution
  3. Quality Assurance of plastic flakes: The Challange
  4. Quality Assurance of plastic flakes: Sesotec Solution

Jay Goldin, Managing Director, Market Development

The waste and recycling industry is quickly adopting advanced technologies, including robotics systems guided by artificial intelligence, to automate the identification and sorting of recyclables from mixed material streams. AI-driven solutions are enabling economic improvements via retrofits within today’s waste management infrastructure. Advancements in AI are facilitating the expansion of new infrastructure, helping to maximize the volume and quality of recycled feedstock by turning what was previously considered contamination into valuable material streams ready for mechanical or chemical recycling. Learn how advanced sortation with AI-guided robots is enabling precise material separation at material recovery facilities, C&D facilities, and even in organics applications.

What attendees will learn:

  • New capabilities in recycling equipment can lead to better recovery and higher quality
  • Improvements compound — An improvement in one facility can lead to improvement across the fleet
  • Upgrades are possible as retrofits in existing MRF infrastructure
  • Superior sorting leads to higher commodity values in MRFs and material markets

Frederic Blanchard, Member of the Board Sorema

The aim of the speech is to provide a general overview on the PET/Film recycling process focusing the attention to the new challenges we are facing: trays-to-trays and de-inking. processes.

What attendees will learn

  • recycling PET packaging new strategies
  • define target of the flakes for Rtrays
  • key process steps
  • general concept of the de-inking process
  • lab line analysis (de-inking)
