Black Plastics

  • In the United States, about 10 percent of post-consumer plastic (~3 million tons) is recycled. The remaining 32 million tons is discarded.

  • Today, an average person living in Western Europe or North America consumes 100 kilograms of plastic each year, mostly in the form of packaging.

  • According to the United Nations Environmental Program, between 22 percent and 43 percent of the plastic used worldwide is disposed of in landfills, where its resources are wasted, the material takes up valuable space, and it blights communities.

  • Approximately 10–20 million tons of plastic end up in the oceans each year.

  • About 4 percent of the petroleum consumed worldwide each year is used to make plastic, and another 4 percent is used to power plastic manufacturing processes.
Sorting Example

  • Sorting of engineered plastics and polymers by specific type—even if they contain carbon black.

  • Sorting Capacity up to 5 t/h for any system

Key for Success

  • Our sorting technology improves your process!

  • If you’re looking to extract and purify specific plastics from waste and recycling streams, you’re in the right place.

  • If you consume scrap polymers, and your goal is melt specific feedstock, you’re in the right place.

  • Austin AI has the newest and most specific technology to deliver the absolute best sorting systems—period.

  • We make that statement based on experience. We back it with proof from our customers.

  • We have technology that is independently tested and proven.

The growing demand for high-value, secondary raw materials needs technology to generates clean fractions .


The right Technology make the difference
  • Expanding Possibilities​

  • In Touch with Tomorrow

  • Think outside the box

  • High Performance. Delivered
Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) based analyzer is capable of very high speed analysis of low atomic number elements.
X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry is an elemental analysis technique. XRF is based on the principle that individual atoms, when excited by an external energy source, emit X-ray photons of a characteristic energy or wavelength.
Terahertz for black plastics!
THz systems offer the possibility for a spectroscopy analysis of shredded plastics. Terahertz radiation – also known as submillimeter radiation, terahertz waves with tremendously high frequency.
  1. Austin AI sensor-based technology increases the waste-stream yield by ensuring consistent quality of output.
  2. Austin AI sensor-based technology allows material composition to be monitored to improve grading of fractions.
