One of the big challenges in plastic recycling is the quality control of recycled plastic.

The degradation degree of the plastic – mainly caused by weathering and exposure to UV (solar) radiation – affects its properties, and may render the plastic unusable. In the PRIMUS project, we are utilizing the novel  VTT Active Hyperspectral Sensor (AHS) to sort the recyclable from non-recyclable plastic waste pieces according to their degradation degree.

We have posted a brief simulation video to explain the process so click below to see how it works!
