Tomra Feedstock, a subsidiary of Norwegian sorting technology specialist Tomra (Asker; www.tomra.com), said it has entered into a long-term feedstock supply agreement with Austrian polyolefins group Borealis (Vienna; www.borealisgroup.com) and its parent petrochemicals group OMV (Vienna; www.omv.com/en).

Tomra said it will provide sorted polymer types from mixed waste to be processed at a large-scale sorting facility it is building in Germany.

The facility is set for an input capacity of 80,000 t/y when it becomes operational at the end of 2025. Running on a technology pioneered by Tomra Feedstock, the plant processes presorted mixed post-consumer waste into sorted clean fractions.

Borealis said it will use the feedstock at polyolefin-based post-consumer waste recycling facilities in Europe that use its Borcycle M technology.
