The global recycling system is collapsing largely because it’s been difficult for recyclers to accurately separate different materials. Robots can help.



 



Inside a sprawling recycling center in Florida, as bottles, cans, boxes, and other recyclables move down conveyor belts, 14 different robots use artificial intelligence to identify each material and automatically sort it, moving twice as quickly as humans doing the same job. The center, called Single Stream Recyclers, is one of the latest to install technology from Amp Robotics, a Colorado-based startup that
