Conference “Sensor-Based Sorting” 2014
The sixth expert conference “Sensor-Based Sorting” will take place at the Eurogress convention centre Aachen/Germany from March 11th to 13th 2014 addressing new developments and applications in the field of automatic separation techniques for primary and secondary raw materials. Organizers are the Department of Processing and Recycling (I.A.R.; Prof. Pretz) and the Unit of Mineral Processing (AMR; Prof. Wotruba) of RWTH Aachen University and the GDMB Society of Metallurgists and Miners. Presentations will exclusively deal with sorting systems that recognize different characteristics without contact or destruction. Feed material is analysed with sensors and intelligent data processing in order to provide selective discharge of individual components. Innovations and advances in the separation of industrial minerals, metal ores, coal, scrap, plastics, waste paper, refuse derived fuel, light packaging waste and others will be outlined in detail. Moreover, an accompanying exhibition will be arranged where manufacturers can present novel technologies of sensor-based sorting. The conference’s aim is to bring together plant operators, manufacturers and developers for an exchange of experiences. Due to its international character all presentations will be conducted in English language only.
