Recycleye system to be installed at re3 MRF
Re3 installed what it said was the UK’s first AI-powered retrofitable robotic waste collection system.
It is at its MRF in Reading, which manages the material for the partnership of FCC Environment and the Borough Councils of Bracknell Forest, Reading and Wokingham.
He worked with Recycleye Robotics to set up the system, which he says can identify, pick and place materials at a rate of 55 items per minute.
The collection system is powered by Recycleye Vision, an AI system that detects all items on the waste streams by material and object and sits above the facility’s conveyor belts.
Victor Dewulf, Managing Director of Recycleye, said: “The installation of Recycleye Robotics at re3’s playback facilities shows how such technology can bring real benefits to local authorities and waste management companies across the UK. United.
“Recycleye has partnered with Fanuc, one of the world’s largest robot manufacturers, to develop a retrofitable and affordable automated sorting solution for the waste management industry.
Recycleeye said artificial intelligence can now be used more widely in recycling, because in the past the limited availability of scalable recognition technologies meant that manual waste pickers were used to identify and extract high-value materials. .
