ZenRobotics Ltd. and Blue Group have signed a distribution agreement for the UK and Ireland. The agreement covers distribution of the ZenRobotics Recycler, the world’s first robotic waste sorting system.
“ZenRobotics is proud to enter the UK market hand in hand with a dynamic market leader. Together we can offer the robotic technology that increases sorting efficiency, flexibility and lowers operating costs. This positive impact will help our customers to reach the 2020 targets and move beyond,” says Dr. Mac Borkowski, UK Sales Director at ZenRobotics.
Blue Group will incorporate the ZenRobotics Recycler (ZRR) into their recycling facilities, which are designed by BlueMAC, the plant manufacturing division of the company, located in Ireland. Once incorporated into a facility, ZRR is designed to recognise and recover mixed waste, including metal, wood, stone, cardboard and rigid plastic fractions from mixed waste streams. ZRR relies on artificial intelligence technology in both identifying the valuable raw materials in the waste and in controlling the robot’s adaptive picking motions.
Blue Group Director Eugene Donnelly commented on the agreement: “This technology is the future for waste plants and we are delighted to be working with the world leader. The technology is almost three times quicker than a human, more accurate and can work over multiple shifts, which will ultimately save a company money over the long-term.”
