Tomra R1 behind the scenes: Developing a revolutionary recycling experienceopens in new window
On 5 November 2019, Tomra Collection Solutions unleashed a recycling innovation that was years in the making: the Tomra R1 reverse vending machine (RVM). The “multi-feed” RVM enables recyclers to pour over 100 empty beverage containers into the machine in one go – rather than inserting them one by one. This means that recyclers can empty an entire bag of drink containers into the RVM in seconds, making it more convenient and motivating to do their part for the planet.
