Sorting electrical waste efficiently and precisely

Every year, consumers and companies around the world scrap millions of tonnes of electrical and electronic equipment, and the trend is rising fast.

In order to recover secondary raw materials and properly dispose of harmful substances, electrical waste needs to be mechanically sorted. We create the systems necessary for this task.

Sesotec specialises in industrial material-sorting systems and has more than 40 years of experience in the recycling industry. We provide a complete range of leading technology that includes sorting systems which reliably differentiate materials using various types of sensor technology and effectively separate material flows.

Why is electrical waste recycled?

The amount of e-waste generated at home and in business continues to grow. However, the old equipment contains various materials, including valuable secondary raw materials, such as precious metals, steels, copper and certain plastics. Recycling these materials makes sense from both an economic and an environmental perspective. Harmful substances are also removed from electrical waste during the separation and sorting process and then properly disposed of. As a result, e-waste recycling helps actively protect the environment. In many cases, it is also required by law, for example under Directive 2012/19/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

 

What are the challenges?

To profitably recycle electrical and electronic waste and introduce valuable materials back into the production cycle, such waste must first be separated into ultra-pure material fractions. However, sorting certain materials can place complex demands on the sorting system. To meet these demands, we can equip our sorting machines with various sensors and separate material flows by colour, shape, type of material or electrical conductivity.

What products are recycled?

  • Small electrical appliances (e.g. hairdryers, coffee makers, radios, etc.)
  • Refrigerators and freezers
  • Screens and monitors
  • PCs, notebooks, printers
  • Tablets and mobile phones
  • Other

 

What materials can be separated?

  • Printed circuit boards
  • Cables and wires
  • Copper
  • Stainless steels
  • Aluminium
  • Engineering plastics
  • Other

 

What are the advantages of our systems?

We never stop further developing the separation and sorting processes. As a result, we provide you with state-of-the-art systems. Our machines are both modular and flexible. Thanks to the possibility of combining various sensors, one single sorting system can often handle a variety of sorting tasks. However, we not only offer individual sorting systems, we also create complete customer-specific solutions with multiple separation stages. By partnering with equipment engineering specialists, we can provide entire installations of even greater complexity with shredding technology. Doing so results in integrated systems with central facility control which are perfectly tailored to your needs.

Are you facing a challenge related to e-waste recycling? Then contact us! We would be happy to advise you personally and help you find the best solution.
