Waste to Energy Development Center Consortium

MSW - Waste Sorting Systems

The Waste to Energy Development Center Consortium and its partners offer industry-specific technologies for the treatment of communal waste and alternative fuels, drawing upon over 30 years of experience. Our extensive product array empowers us to provide modern and comprehensive waste management solutions.

Our technology provides a solution to reclaim valuable materials from waste or convert waste into sources of energy. This approach facilitates a reduction in the extraction of primary raw materials and diminishes the scale of waste landfills. Our developmental initiatives center on sustainability and quality, underscored by a track record of numerous projects and product advancements. The global dissemination of our products aligns with our commitment to contributing to a cleaner world, characterized by enhanced resource management for the benefit of future generations.

The Consortium and its members execute the following tasks in the project management workflow. 

Waste Collection: Gathering waste materials from municipal, industrial, and agricultural sources.

Transportation: Transporting collected waste to sorting facilities for further processing.

Waste sorting and categorization: Systematically employing processes to classify and separate various types of waste materials into distinct categories based on their properties, characteristics, and composition.

Utilization of automated and manual methods to sort recyclable and non-recyclable materials:

  • Manual Sorting: Utilizing manual labor to refine the sorting process, particularly for materials that automation may not effectively handle.

  • Optical Sorting of Waste: Implementing a technology-driven method employed in waste management and recycling to automatically identify and sort materials based on their optical properties. This process involves the use of specialized optical sensors and cameras to assess the characteristics of waste materials as they pass along a conveyor belt. By analyzing factors like color, shape, and reflectivity, the system can differentiate between different types of materials, such as plastics, paper, glass, and metals. Subsequently, air jets or mechanical devices are used to sort these materials into designated categories for recycling or further processing. Optical sorting is highly effective in enhancing the efficiency and precision of waste sorting operations in recycling facilities, thereby promoting more sustainable waste management practices.

  • AI Robot Sorting of Waste: Using artificial intelligence (AI) in conjunction with robotic systems to automate the identification and sorting of various types of waste materials in recycling and waste management facilities. This sophisticated approach relies on machine learning algorithms and computer vision to recognize and categorize different materials, such as plastics, paper, metals, and glass, as they move along a conveyor belt. Subsequently, robotic arms or mechanisms are employed to precisely sort and divert these materials into their respective streams for recycling or proper disposal. AI robot sorting significantly enhances the efficiency and accuracy of waste sorting processes, ultimately contributing to more sustainable and effective waste management practices.

Resource Recovery: Maximizing the recovery of valuable resources from the sorted materials, such as metals, plastics, and paper.

Safety Measures: Ensuring the safety of workers and the proper handling of waste materials. Safety training and protocols are implemented to minimize risks associated with waste sorting.

Environmental Impact Assessment: Conducting environmental impact assessments to evaluate the ecological effects of waste sorting operations and implementing measures to mitigate any negative impacts.

Regulatory Compliance and Reporting: Ensuring compliance with local, regional, and national waste management regulations and reporting on waste sorting activities.

Equipment Maintenance: Conducting regular maintenance and repair of sorting equipment to ensure efficient and safe operations.

Waste-to-Energy: Exploring waste-to-energy solutions where non-recyclable waste is used as a source of energy, contributing to sustainability efforts.

From concept to implementation 

The Waste to Energy Development Center Consortium - A Comprehensive Service Center: Offering integrated solutions where concepts, products, and execution are seamlessly provided, ensuring our clients receive state-of-the-art, cost-efficient, and safe operational waste processor plants.

Sorting plants

The Waste to Energy Development Center Consortium provides turnkey waste processing plants designed for selectively collected and mixed communal waste. TTL USA, Inc. assumes responsibility for the entire technological design and execution, catering to performance levels ranging from 20,000 to 200,000 tons per year. Our expertise extends to the installation of both simpler manual sorting lines and fully automatic systems. Leveraging our optimized equipment and solutions, we deliver enduring, cost-effective, and efficient solutions. Quality components ensure low-cost maintenance.

RDF plants 

Refuse-derived fuel (RDF) stands as a valuable alternative to primary fossil fuels, such as gas, oil, and coal. The Waste to Energy Development Center Consortium provides a contemporary and efficient processing technology for RDF production. Municipal solid waste (MSW) and commercial and industrial waste (C&I) contain diverse materials that require mechanical separation. This process involves material shredding and classification, along with the removal of metals, inert substances, and organic materials.
