Automation and artificial intelligence are revolutionizing industries globally and that includes the recycling sector. One remarkable example can be found at a materials recovery facility (MRF) in Boulder, CO, where cutting-edge AI technology has been deployed to enhance recycling operations.
This intelligent system has acquired the ability to distinguish between different materials, accurately identifying pieces of plastic among sheets of paper and then efficiently separating them. This also increases accuracy and speeds while reducing manual labor requirements. By seamlessly integrating AI into recycling processes, this facility is paving the way for more efficient and effective recycling practices.
