Recresco invests in technology from Sesotec
The K9 sorting plant which enables enhanced sorting of glass from co-mingled kerbside and HWRC collections, was recently commissioned at Recresco’s Ellesmere Port site.
Sesotec has been working with the glass industry for more than 40 years. Its K9 optical sorting system boasts enhanced colour sorting ability, reduction of dust and increased material capacity through greater efficiency. With this technology in place, Recresco can separate glass fragments by colour more effectively while removing foreign material, such as ceramics, stones and porcelain (CSP) with ease. The technology offers a premium quality end product by removing all contaminants including metal caps and easily detecting and removing heat-resistant and leaded glass.
