Waste wood recycling - sorting & purification – TOMRA X-TRACT

Meet high-quality requirements for waste wood recycling through sorting and purification with TOMRA X-TRACT.

Discover more about X-TRACT for wood sorting applications:

Today, most of the world uses wood waste for fuel. Thanks to advancements in sorting technology, waste wood recycling is now at the forefront of the wood-based panel industry and the transition to a circular economy.

Our wood sorting solutions combine x-ray transmission (XRT), NIR, and deep learning technologies to purify and sort wood chips into Wood A and Wood B fractions, including single fractions of clean wood and MDF.

Whether sorting wood for biomass or material recycling, X-TRACT delivers high-throughput sorting of mixed materials to remove inert materials, glass, metals, and other impurities from waste wood.

After the waste wood is pre-sorted by X-TRACT, the material can be further processed to create ‘grade A’ recycled wood chips for chipboard production. Using a combination of NIR sorting (AUTOSORT) and our deep learning technology (GAIN), wood chips are analyzed and sorted by non-processed and processed materials (MDF, HDF, WPC and wood composites). Single fractions of non-processed wood and MDF can be produced.
