Find your perfect recycling solution at the TOMRA Test Center

Recycling plant operators might be aware of this: Finding the right solution for your particular need is not always easy. In my case, my plant required a new and effective machine to sort plastic bottles, separating PET bottles from other materials and colored PET before they can be shredded and sorted once more. My old equipment, consisting of machines I bought ten years ago, did not seem to be suitable for my facility's needs anymore, its outcome was often imprecise and its maintenance was time-consuming and thus costly. But how could I find a tailored solution among all the new machines and the modern, high-end technology? At this point, I contacted TOMRA Sorting Recycling, inquiring on a new sorting solution to meet my needs – and was invited to have my materials tested at the TOMRA Test Center. But let me tell the whole story!

World Environment Day: How you can take care of me, Earth

You may know me as "terra", mother of all life. I am 4.6 billion years old, more than 12,700 kilometers in diameter and have a surface area of 510,100,000 square kilometers – of which 70 percent are water and 30 percent land. While there is more life on me than I can count, I inhabit over seven billion humans. As your Earth, it is my mission to protect not only you but all of life, from the tiniest bug to the largest whale in the ocean, from weeds to reefs. Unfortunately, some humans spoil the broth and while you might mean well, there is a reckless exploitation of resources, especially of non-renewable resources. It takes millions of years for fossil fuels such as gas or coal to form, and yet humans use them up like nothing else. Not to mention how deforestation harms not only animals but also humans and my resources, the entire atmosphere. That is why I am happy to talk about World Environment Day, which in 2020 focuses on biodiversity.
