Waste as a resource, The SORT-IT project in Linz, Austria

Europeans have a good record in paper recycling, but the millions of tonnes of recovered paper still need to be sorted according to grade before being re-used. Manual sorting is dirty and time consuming, but an EU project, named SORT-IT, has developed a new machinery that uses sensor technologies to separate the plastic from the paper, and sort out the different paper grades.
