Eric van Looy (Sense2Sort – Toratecnica)Being a technical engineer, Eric has spent more than 2 decades on the development of sensor based sorting technologies to advance recycling processes. Since 2006 he pursued automated spectroscopy technologies like XRF (at that time also together with Tom Jansen) and LIBS. Today, sorting has become possible to an unmet extend and with the second generation of Sense2Sort LIBS sorters, it has become possible to identify the elemental composition of each metal piece at high throughputs and up to 6 fractions with one machine. Sense2Sort-Toratecnica focuses on sustainable, reliable and responsible solutions for a max of eco-economical sorting sense. This also involves the design of advanced sorting plants and consultation work.Expert in: Separation and Sorting TechnologyTom Jansen (TOMRA Sorting GmbH)After studying Chemical Engineering at the Technical University of Eindhoven, the Netherlands, Tom started working as Sales Engineer at Innov-X Systems. He initially focused on selling handheld XRF equipment in the Benelux, while gradually extending the geographical territory over the years. From 2007 he was heavily involved in the pioneering of automated XRF sensor technology, bringing this new technology to the metal scrap market worldwide. Tom joined TOMRA Sorting (then Titech GmbH) in 2011 as Sales Manager responsible for the Metal Recycling market in the Netherlands and Belgium. Since then, in his role as Segment Champion for the ELV shredder segment, he has also supported the metal recycling market in the Middle East region, Italy, Greece and projects in several other countries.Expert in: Separation and Sorting TechnologyStefan Lewandowski (Presona AB)Stefan Lewandowski is an expert in all matters regarding heavy duty horizontal balers for a wide range of industrial applications. Stefan has travelled all over the world for the last 10 years sharing his knowledge in volume reduction technology in general and pre-press horizontal balers in specific.Expert in: Volume Reduction TechnologyEugene van den Boomen (Goudsmit Magnetics Group)Eugène van den Boomen has over 20 years of experience in all technical aspects of Magnetic Recycling Equipment. He is closely involved with the development of Eddy-Current separators, inductive sensor- & high-gradient separators, overband separators, magnetic head pulleys and drum separators for recycling and recovery applications.
These systems are installed in the Goudsmit Test Centre where companies can test bulk samples of various materials. This simplifies the final choice of a specific separation system and guarantees customers an optimal separation result.Expert in: Separation and Sorting Technology
