Abstract The report provides a detailed evaluation of a pilot-scale automated sorting system for mixed post-consumer plastic containers developed by Rutgers University Center for Plastics Recycling Research (CPRR). The five bottle types considered were natural high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), clear polyethylene terephthalate (PET), green polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and opague high gensity polyethylene (HDPE). Three series of tests were performed: single composition, short-term tests, mixed composition, short-term tests, and mixed composition, extended tests. Video taping one of the extended tests proved invaluable in providing insight into diagnosing the system's singulation performance and errors in station recovery. The material handling system had a greater effect than sensor performance on the overall performance of the system.
