TECNALIA uses artificial vision to improve recycling of electronic scrap metal
Date:2/5/2009

ignificantly (for example, in the case of aluminium, between 30 and 40% more).

Drawing up the project

Apart from Tecnalia, taking part in this project are the CSL technological centre at the University of Lige (Belgium), the recycling companies Indumental Recycling (the Basque Country) and Ige Hennemann (Germany), the recycling machine manufacturer Hevac Ambient (Barcelona), the SPECIM multispectral system designers (Finland) and the Aclima Environment Cluster (the Basque Country).

The current processes of the recycling companies have a number of samples with mixtures of different components (aluminium, copper, brass, steel, plastics, and so on) for which it is desirable to be able to separate their distinct components. Initial analyses of these samples were carried out by the designers of the CSL illumination system, by means of point to point analyses, and by SPECIM using analysis with multispectral cameras

For the design of the prototype machine, including the vision system, the targets of the recycling companies have been taken into account, with the aim of that the machine will be in the end also competitive at the level of performance, functionality and price.

The recycling companies, members of the consortium (Indumental Recycling and Ige Hennemann) have thus defined their main requirements for the first stage of the project:

  • The initial quantity they wish to identify by unit of time (the entry of the mix with all the components)
  • The components of each fraction and their proportion in the mix
  • The size, colour, shape and other physical characteristics of each component
  • The components that have to be extracted
  • The minimum size to be identified
  • The minimum and maximum size of components to be separated
  • The height of each component
  • Notable problems of certain materials
  • The average particle weight of each component, or the shape thereof, in order to
