A European materials recovery facility will install sorting detection equipment to identify digital watermarks on plastic packaging.
The Alliance to End Plastic Waste and the European Brands Association (AIM) on Sept. 6 announced the next phase of the HolyGrail 2.0 project. The pilot project is exploring digital watermarking as a sorting aid for materials recovery facilities (MRFs).
The project will involve installing a “prototype sorting detection unit” at a recycling facility in Copenhagen, Denmark. The line includes sortation equipment from Pellenc ST and Tomra.
