Umincorp is the developer and supplier of Magnetic Density Separation (MDS) based solutions. The MDS technology uses ferromagnetic fluid and engineered magnets to recover post-consumer mixed plastics at higher yields and polymer purities than existing sorting technologies. The value creating technology is able to lower the total cost involved in the chain of plastics recycling.
“Sorting – in a single step – 1.5 ton of mixed plastics per hour directly into separated polymer groups with a purity of up to 99% is the result of thorough research and development. We are very keen, supported by the investment from Ingka Group, to make our unique MDS technology available to the plastics recycling market. We aim to reach mass circularity of polymers by significantly reducing the cost of recycling and improving the purity of the recycled products. Our technology is an important enabler to get there.” says Jaap Vandehoek, CEO of Umincorp.
“We believe that treating materials as circular resources will be a defining movement of our era. This can only happen when the right infrastructure exists. This development brings us one step closer in making the circularity of recycled plastics more attainable. That’s why we invest in innovative companies, like Umincorp, to grow and help enable the many people to live a more sustainable and affordable everyday life at home.” says Krister Mattsson, Head of Ingka Investments.
Umincorp was established in 2012 as a sorting technology solutions developer, based on the unique and patented Magnetic Density Separation technology.
