LIGHT WEIGHT PACKAGING SORTING PLANTS 10-11 of them have automated their processes, leading to improved performance: about 80% of selected packages come from automated plants. This has been aided by the continuous collaboration between all the players in the packaging recovery and recycling sector and Ecoembes in the field of efficiency and R&D and innovation. It has thereby been possible to conduct production performance studies at sorting plants in order to fine-tune the need for investment and the operational costs. Similarly, this collaboration allows the improvement of the packages themselves by improving their design, detecting problems in the sorting process or taking the appropriate measures following the arrival of new materials that could affect the work in the sorting plants. It should be recalled that this constant effort towards innovation and improvement results in environmental, social and economic benefits, since among other advantages it creates thousands of jobs in what is termed the green economy. In short, the collaboration between Ecoembes and the sector as a whole allows the anticipation of the new scenarios imposed by technological changes and increasingly demanding environmental regulations.
