How can robotic recycling help me?

Automating your waste processing with robotic recycling has tons of benefits. Here’s our 4 favorites.

1 Sort various fractions in one spot

A single robot can simultaneously sort a variety of different materials and objects of various shapes and sizes. Due to its accurate sensors and smart software, ZenRobotics Recycler can actually learn while it processes waste. This makes the system superior for dealing with changes in waste streams.

At present, our customers use ZRR to sort metals, different grades of wood, various grades of minerals, rigid plastics and cardboard. Due to its learning ability, ZRR can also be trained to sort specific objects such as tubes and pipes, or even plastic bags. The sorting capabilities can be redefined for every new market situation – even on a daily basis.

Robotic recycling allows you to sort many high-quality fractions in one spot.

2 Save time and money

ZenRobotics Recycler can run 24/7 autonomously with very low energy consumption. The robotic system is highly durable and requires minimal downtime or maintenance. This makes ZRR both highly cost-efficient and extremely productive.

Additional cost savings come from reduced labour costs and reduced incineration or landfill costs. Due to its high-purity sorting capability, reaching up to 95% purity, ZRR provides increased profits on re-sellable recyclables. With ZRR, you can sort materials that were previously not profitable to sort.

3 Sort smarter

ZenRobotics Recycler’s smart software makes robotic sorting highly accurate and efficient. The upgradable software allows the system to learn new waste types, therefore making ZRR a long-term future-proof solution for managing changing waste types.

ZRR also comes with modern reporting and monitoring tools. You can access an on-line analysis of your waste stream and sorting results. The reporting tool provides you with key information needed to control and optimize your production.

4 Sort more efficiently

ZenRobotics Recycler can be set up as efficient and yet simple and scalable stand-alone installations. This eliminates the need to transport waste to large, centralized waste processing plants. So, you can process waste faster and closer to its source, eliminating the costs involved in extended transport and storage.

ZRR requires little pre-processing of waste. Therefore, there is no need to set up separate expensive and energy-intensive crushing units. The multitasking ZRR processing unit is able to simultaneously sort several different waste fractions from a single waste stream.
