Sorting is the process in which mixed plastic waste is sorted according to the specific type of plastic. This is done by using mechanical means and/or manually.Mechanical sorting is able to identify all types of plastics (e.g. PVC, PET, PP, PE, ABS, PC, POM, PMMA) and its colors. However, mechanical means will not be 100% accurate. Manual supervision and sorting is in place to ensure proper segregation.
