TOMRA, a global leader in resource sustainability, has been confirmed as the sponsor of the Circular Economy Theatre at RWM 2021, which takes place from 22-23 September at the Birmingham NEC.
Brian Gist, Head of TOMRA UK, will be presenting the opening session at 11:00-11:30 on the first day of the show where he will discuss TOMRA’s Holistic Resource Systems model. The model demonstrates that by using the optimal combination of existing waste management practices for the collection, sorting and recycling of waste, we can take action now to maximise plastics recycling and its associated carbon benefits.
Representatives from TOMRA’s Collection and Recycling divisions will be on hand at stand 5-Q130 to highlight the myriad of ways in which the company’s solutions are helping stakeholders across the entire value chain in the transition towards a more circular economy. From preparing for the upcoming deposit return schemes to maximising the efficiencies of waste sorting and adhering to the latest European and international waste legislation, TOMRA’s teams will be ready to help.
Visitors to the show can try two of TOMRA’s innovative reverse vending machines which can accept PET, glass and cans: the TOMRA T70 and the TOMRA M1 Concept – a new compact machine which has been custom created for retailers in the UK.
With more than 80,000 installations across 60 markets, TOMRA’s reverse vending machines capture more than 40 billion used beverage containers every year. Mark Brill, Vice President Sales and Marketing at TOMRA Collection, will be speaking on the first day of the event at 15:30-16:00 in the Collections & Transport Theatre. Mark will explore how to prepare for the forthcoming introduction of deposit return schemes in the UK and will outline best practice in running effective schemes, based on TOMRA’s experience in European and international markets.
TOMRA Recycling’s focus for this year’s RWM will be its new generation AUTOSORT® machine which combines leading-edge features and technologies to achieve unparalleled throughput and purity levels. Visitors to the stand will find out how TOMRA Recycling’s continued investment in AUTOSORT® technology ensures customers have a future-proof solution that can adapt to meet the changing needs of their business and end markets.
More than 7,400 TOMRA recycling systems have been installed in 100+ countries worldwide, giving TOMRA a global market share of more than 60% and an 80% share of the UK market. Experts from TOMRA Recycling will be available on stand to highlight the latest developments and innovations in sensor-based sorting for a range of materials, and to discuss the ways in which sensor-based sorting solutions are helping reprocessors achieve unparalleled yield and purity of end fractions while simultaneously adhere to the latest waste legislation.
Brian Gist, commented: “RWM is a key date in the waste industry’s calendar and after such a long hiatus in trade events, we are delighted to be getting back in front of existing and potential customers to highlight the work we’ve been undertaking since RWM 2019. We would urge visitors to the show to come and meet us on our stand and attend our two speaker sessions to find out more about how we can help in the shift towards a more circular economy.”
