TOMRA Sorting Mining’s history began in 1993, when Commodas applied their core sensor-based technology to a mining application, separating Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) from other matter. The sorters automatically removed grey and dark rocks from the bulk feed, achieving excellent results. In 2006, Commodas joined the TOMRA Group, which built on this legacy of innovation. Today, TOMRA Sorting Mining’s combined strengths of expert industry knowledge, proprietary technology and qualified engineer support service help operations around the world unlock value from their mines.

TOMRA Sorting Mining is part of the TOMRA Group, which provides technology-led solutions that enable the circular economy with advanced collection and sorting systems that optimize resource recovery and minimize waste in the food, recycling and mining industries.
