Contaminant removal and sorting technology for household waste

Each year, German households produce around 38 million tonnes of waste. This gigantic mountain of rubbish harbours valuable raw materials that can be removed, recycled, processed and turned into new, high-quality products. Sesotec develops innovative sorting systems for sorting centres and recycling companies to divide mixed material flows into uniform fractions and eliminate contaminants.

Sesotec is a market leader in the field of contaminant removal and sorting technology. Our sorting systems reliably differentiate materials using various types of sensor technology and separate material flows with efficiency and precision.

Why is household waste recycled?

In 2016, each German produced an average of 462 kilogrammes of household waste, including residual, organic and bulky waste, paper and cardboard packaging, glass, wood, plastics, metals and much more. Only a small portion of waste still ends up in landfills. Most of the materials from household waste are sorted out, used as fuel or processed into secondary raw materials for creating new products. At modern sorting facilities, materials can be efficiently sorted out and sold at a profit. Doing so is not only eco-friendly, but also aids low-cost production of new goods.
 

How do Sesotec systems help you?

Sesotec has been developing innovative machines and systems for the recycling industry for more than 40 years. Our sorting systems cover applications for sorting household waste. They remove contaminants or metals and separate materials by colour, shape and type. In doing so, they play an important role in introducing reusable material profitably into the recycling loop.

Greater throughput levels, less loss of material and higher material purity increase added value. As a result, the purchase of equipment amortises rapidly. In addition, sorting systems help with sustainability, the conservation of resources and environmental protection, as less rubbish ends up in landfills or incinerators.

What products and materials are sorted?

  • Plastics, such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and polystyrene (PS)
  • Paper
  • Cardboard packaging
  • Beverage cartons (e.g. Tetra Pak)
  • Glass
  • Metal
  • Wood
