PaperRecycling Industry

Paper-Recycling

We work for a sustainable future

What happens to our waste paper? The daily waste products are now much more than just “garbage”. They contain recyclable raw materials that can and should be recycled.
The “life cycle” of a product describes its duration, or durability. If a product exceeds this cycle, the validity and quality status of the product can no longer be fully granted. To preserve the life cycle of a product, the recycling principle “from old to new” comes into play. Particularly valuable and successful is the process in the paper industry.

The LuxFlux technology supports, simplifies and improves the sorting and analysis process in the paper industry. Our special camera software reveals moisture damage, adhesive residue and other damage to the paper. In addition, different types of paper (e.g. deviations in the density or the composition of the individual fibers) can be analyzed and sorted out in real-time.

When it comes to the consumption of cardboard and paper products, the German population falls into the top 10 worldwide. According to the Federal Environment Agency a German inhabitant uses over 200 kg of paper waste annually.
The numbers are scary. The uses of paper are seemingly endless: it appears in the form of hygiene articles or as “tools” in education or for communicative purposes, books, notebooks, pads, sheets, notes, colorful post-it notes and much more. In daily consumption (at work or privately) paper is often used thoughtless and partly used to an exaggerated extent. The above-average short „life“ of paper or cardboard articles makes you think about your own consumption. Paper does not arise from an endless, never-ending source of resources: therefor, trees must be felled and whole forests cleared. From an ecological point of view, the high consumption rate can no longer be supported.

That’s why we at LuxFlux are committed to greener practices. With our technology, we are looking into the future! We help the paper and recycling industry in the field of sorting and process analysis to a more effective, time-saving and profitable process.

The left illustration shows an original photography of a coffee mug with various accessories (see material inscriptions). In many cases, the different substances are disposed together by the consumer (without presorting). The same objects are also shown on the right picture. This is a false-color coded image. The material characteristics or material differences that appear in the hyperspectral analysis are visualized on the right in a simplified way. With this method the different substances can be identified and classified in a fast way.
