Robot Separates Recyclables from Other Garbage - video - | Finland |
Helsinki-based ZenRobotics says its intelligent recycling robot correctly identified and sorted half of the recyclable material it was fed during tests at a construction site.

The robot is able to identify metals, concrete, wood and certain types of plastics.

[Harri Valpola, Chief Technology Officer, ZenRobotics]:
"Currently waste is being sorted by all kinds of mechanical means, drums, screens and this kind of technology can not handle the type of waste the robots can do."
