  • Waste plastic sorting is separation of plastic from various types of waste streams.

  • The sorting of plastic is a very essential step in different waste management technique including manual and automated.

  • Manual sorting is suitable when plastic component are present in large amount but it is a labor intensive process.

  • In automated sorting technique offers great advantage but not suited for dark coloured plastic and can be used on transparent bodies.
  • What is waste plastic sorting


  • At the start of the sorting line, a bag opener ensures that the waste is ready for sorting.

  • The mixed plastic waste is then fed though a film separator.

  • This removed film to prevent it impeding the rest of the sorting process.

  • The waste is then fed through a trommel sieve, which separates the waste by size.

  • Small fines fall through and, after passing through a magnetic sorter to remove ferrous metal, form a residual waste fraction.

  • Medium and large sized plastic waste is then fed into wind shifters to separate heavy and light plastic fractions, and ballistic separators to separate rolling (3D) waste and flat (2D) waste.

  • The flat and light plastic waste is combined to form a plastic foil material fraction.
  • Process of waste plastic sorting plant
  • The heavy, rolling plastic from the ballistic separator is then passed through a magnetic sorter to extract the ferrous metal components, after which the plastic waste is suitable for a series of NIR sorting processes, which separate different plastic types by identifying and mechanically removing them (often by air blast or flipper) from the waste stream.

  • For PET and PP, further ballistic processes are used to sort 3D and 2D elements. Most sorting plants also use manual sorting as quality assurance at the end of the process for each material type.
