The SORTON solution takes hold in the Zero Waste movement of the European Union (Zero Waste). This increasingly widespread movement encompasses all business actions to reach a circular and much more sustainable economy. SORTON not only participates in this “economy of the future” but also allows companies to participate in this movement through profitable options for them. The economic benefits of SORTON solutions for its customers are, among others:
Landfills have a cost of 51 €/ t on average, which can grow to 75 €/t or more in most countries of Central and Northern Europe.
The prices of recyclable materials are increasing. For example, metals, depending on the type, are between 70 €/t and 200 €/t, or plastic that is between 20 €/t and 70 €/t.
The light fraction of the waste, which before was disposable, has found a new application: the RDF (Refuse-Derived Fuel).
Since recycling is a closed loop, no additional waste is created. This also contributes to landfill savings.
Raw materials savings
For every ton of recycled glass, two of more tons of natural resources are saved.
Reduction of the energy demand
Every 10% of recycled material in a factory saves more than 2% of the energy it uses.
CO2 emission reduction
And, therefore, of the greenhouse effect: for every 6 tons of recycled material, about 1 ton less of CO2 is emited.
Less airborne particles
Reducción of emissions of airborne particles, including nitrogen oxide and sulfate oxides.
