In line with this vision, our customer Placity Recycling decided to establish their company in India, with the main goal to make the plastic recycling process more efficient. The family-owned company collects mixed materials to allow the recycling process of a particular polymer, such as HDPE, PET, PVC, PP, PE, etc.
Mr. Malay Patel, who is a young and future-oriented entrepreneur, visited the Cimbria SEA factory in Imola with different sets of samples, that were processed by SEA HYPERSORT, having advanced NIR hyperspectral cameras. The Cimbria SEA laboratory in Italy performed successful test results, conforming to the industry purity standards, ensuring the finalization of the order.
Cimbria has recently installed the SEA HYPERSORT electronic sorter, which is extensively used by Placity Recycling to sort out the impurities and foreign polymers from the main product.
SEA HYPERSORT is equipped with infrared hyperspectral cameras to separate foreign polymers and unwanted elements that have the same color and transparency, so when there are no visible differences in the material to sort. PET, PVC, PE, PP, PS, etc. can be separated according to their chemical nature, to match the purity standard required by the market. The hyperspectral NIR sensors recognize elements based on their specific spectral properties of reflected light, representing the state-of-the-art solution in the polymer sorting process.
