    Aarhus University Awarded Grant for Machine Vision Enhanced Plastics Recycling

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Aarhus University has been awarded a $3.5 million grant (22.7 million DKK) to develop a camera-based system for the separation of plastic waste according to type. Aarhus will be working with waste management and recycling companies Vestforbrænding I/S, Dansk Affaldsminimering ApS, and PLASTIX A/S.

    Artificial intelligence will control separation in the system, which will contain three types of cameras: a CMOS camera, a hyperspectral camera, and a terahertz camera. The three will together image and discern properties of the plastic material directly on the conveyer-belt system.

    Plastics, composed of a multitude of chemical compounds and filler materials depending on use, pose difficulties to large-scale recycling….
