Swiss-based Eberhard purchases robotic waste sorting system

Helsinki – ZenRobotics Ltd and Eberhard, based in Zurich, Switzerland, have agreed on the delivery of a ZenRobotics Recycler robotic waste sorting system. The installation of the system will begin in late summer. The state-of-the-art system will be the first of its kind in Switzerland.

The Eberhard Group is a pioneering family business with a solid position in the Swiss waste management industry. Investing in robotic waste sorting was a natural step for the forward-thinking recycler.

“We think long term. We seek the most economically and ecologically optimal ways to operate. It’s in our company culture to think innovatively and the potential in robotic waste sorting is enormous”, says Mr. Martin Eberhard, Eberhard CEO.

The ZenRobotics Recycler is the world’s first robotic waste sorting system. Designed to reduce waste processing costs and increase recycling efficiency, the solution defines the next generation of recycling. The ZenRobotics Recycler reclaims multiple fractions simultaneously with the help of industrial robots and smart machine learning technology.

“Especially in this project, we have been able to demonstrate that ZenRobotics Recycler has amazing learning capability with new waste streams. The system now adapts quickly to new customer needs”, explains Mr. Timo Taalas, ZenRobotics CEO.

Eberhard’s system will be the first ZenRobotics Recycler installation in Switzerland. “We’re thrilled to deliver our technology to Switzerland as it’s a leading recycling nation with strict regulations”, Taalas adds. “We truly believe that robotic waste sorting is the best present-day option for recyclers everywhere.”
