UK-based social enterprise Bryson Recycling has acquired four more robots from Recycleye Robotics to enhance operations at its Mallusk facility in Northern Ireland.

The investment is in line with Bryson’s strategy to build on the successful operation of its existing AI-powered Recycleye solution on its fibre line.

The company will install two of the four robots over a fibre line to pick out non-paper items such as plastics, cans, and cardboard to reduce contamination while the remaining robots will operate on a residual line to remove recyclable materials.

These new additions are expected to improve material quality, maximise recycling rates, and reduce residual waste and operational costs.

Bryson engineering manager Jaroslaw Stanislawek said: “We have decided to purchase four further robots from Recycleye, following the great results from the first one – almost 8,500 run hours, with around 5,000kg of materials picked per week, and with an availability greater than 98%. We feel confident this new installation will further improve the consistency in our material quality.”

According to Recycleye, these robots detect all individual items on waste streams by material and object, delivering better accuracy in identifying, picking, and placing materials compared to human operatives.

Recycleye CEO Victor Dewulf said: “We are delighted that Bryson Recycling has chosen to continue working with us to build on their initial investment in our AI-powered waste robots. This is a strong statement of confidence in the value Recycleye robots bring to waste sorting and to the economics of materials recovery, and we are proud to be able to support Bryson.”
