The plant sort’s food waste that is source separated in a green bag. Right from the start, the plant meets the set sorting targets of 95%, both in sorting accuracy1) and sorting efficiency2)
- Sorting accuracy is defined as out of 100 bags, at least 95 are detected and sorted from the main waste stream.
- Sorting efficiency is defined such that at most 5 bags are wrongly sorted from a set of 100 bags, i.e. at most 5 non-green bags among 100 bags in total which were sorted from the main waste stream.
