SORT IT aims at developing new technologies for a more efficient and profitable sorting of recovered paper and board from various collection systems. These include: * New sensors based on near infrared spectrometry, image analysis and colour measurement (WP 2) * New physical separation devices like robots (WP 3) * New sorting concepts (WP 4) The new sorting devices will be implemented into an industrial sorting chain. Full scale sorting trials of recovered paper will be carried out (WP 5). Extensive life cycle studies will be carried out to assess the environmental, economic and social benefits (WP 1). The dissemination and communication plan (WP 6) includes conventional dissemination activities, introduction of new findings to the market and production of foreground for the development of the European environmental policy.
