Abstract (en)

[origin: CA2280545A1] An apparatus for sorting waste material, in particular plastic waste and hollow parts made of plastic. The waste material (4) to be sorted is placed in an unsorted manner on a conveyor belt (1) and moved below a sensor (2) where it is examined with respect to the type of material and/or the type of colour and being sorted out depending on the respective type. The apparatus is characterized in that the conveyor (1) is provided with a grate-like structure and blow-out nozzles (10) which are arranged below the conveyor belt.
