Site Zero: this is the world's largest plastic sorting plant

Svensk Plaståtervinning recently opened the world's largest plastic sorting plant "Site Zero" in Motala, Sweden. State-of-the-art equipment from Sutco and Tomra will be able to efficiently sort all Swedish plastic packaging waste into 12 different fractions.
💚 The mega-facility is capable of sorting all household plastic from Sweden - and Finland.
💚 Advanced Technology: Site Zero uses infrared cameras to sort plastic waste into 12 different types, compared to the old facility which could only sort five. This technology allows for a sorting efficiency of up to 95% of all packaging received.
💚 Increased Recycling Capacity: The plant significantly boosts the amount of plastic being recycled, moving from 47% recycling in the old facility to up to 95% in Site Zero.
💚 Impact on Circular Economy: The efficiency and capacity of Site Zero are seen as a major step towards making plastics a viable part of the circular economy. Philipsson emphasizes the need to reduce plastic incineration and the creation of low-quality, non-recyclable products.
💚 European Leadership: The facility sets a new standard for plastic recycling in Europe and globally, showcasing a path towards more sustainable waste management.

        This is excellent - and yet terrifying that the largest sorting plant takes care of plastic from two of the world’s smallest nations. What about India, Indonesia, Nigeria ?

          This is great, but my issue is always that this kind of solution can be used to justify an ever-increasing plastic consumption. Which is based on fossil fuels. This type of innovation has to go hand in hand with policies limiting plastic use at the same time.

                          By reducing plastic incineration and discouraging non-recyclable product creation, it not only showcases leadership in plastic recycling but also serves as a global inspiration for sustainable waste management practices

                              With only 34% of plastic being recycled in Sweden (and 9% globally), it is great to see more efficient sorting plants open! Do they plan on expanding and building more of these in Sweden and Europe?

                                  @marine_stephan This plant will cover all plastic volume in both Sweden and Finland so where we need to improve now is to collect the plastic (and to build more of those plants in other countries).
