SITA Finland Ltd recently announced a strategic deal with ZenRobotics Ltd. Under the terms of the deal, SITA will take delivery of two ZenRobotics Recycler (ZRR) systems; one is the ZRR Heavy Picker, and the second one is the ZRR Fast Picker. Founded in 2007, ZenRobotics is a Finnish high-tech company that specializes in robotic recycling technology.
SITA Finland is a subsidiary of SUEZ Environment and an expert in water and waste management. In a statement, Jorma Kangas, CEO, SITA Finland Ltd., said, "Sustainable re-use of raw materials is the key. SITA is now introducing a revolutionary technology to waste management. This strengthens our position as a supplier of high-quality industrial raw materials in Finland."
Once SITA Finland takes delivery of the 2 ZenRobotics Recycler (ZRR) systems, the SITA Finland site will have a total of three robotic systems. The first ZRR test system was bought by SITA Finland in 2011.
ZenRobotics CEO Juho Malmberg said, "Our three years of cooperation come to fruition! The SITA installation will be built by Finnish machine-building industry to the designs of the super-talented ZenRobotics team. And this is just the beginning of what SITA and ZenRobotics can do together. Great Yuletide news to bring to the team! In fact, I do feel a bit like the Santa right now!"
The ZenRobotics Recycler has been designed to safely and efficiently pick up raw material from construction and demolition waste. By deploying the ZRR system, the utilization rate for the waste class at the SITA Finland Helsinki plant is expected to go up from the previous 70 percent to 90 percent. The expected rate after deployment is expected to be around 95 percent rate.
ZenRobotics has been revolutionizing the sector for robotic recycling systems with an array of technology advancements. The ZenRobotics Recycler, an artificial-intelligence-controlled robotic recycling system, efficiently collects raw materials from construction and demolition waste.
