Multi Sensor Solutions
Waste management in general is very important in order to keep economies sustainable and recycling of all sorts are vital in preserving the environment. This research project concentrated on waste paper sorting. Currently paper waste is mainly sorted manually, even though sorting paper is a multi-step process and at certain stages different automated sorting technologies are also being used, hand selection still is more decisive. Automated sorting of waste paper would increase the efficiency, speed and quality of the output streams. The study scope is to discover whether a hyperspectral snapshot camera can be used in automated paper sorting and in final quality control.
