PRODINTEC, through its Digital Industry unit, and INDAGO colaborate on the MANUNET project “STEWART - SorTing system for dEmolition WAste based on advanced RoboTics”. This project aims to to increase the recycle of Construction and Demolition Waste (CDW) materials, the performances and the added value of CDW based products by developing an innovative technology for sorting CDW. The advanced sorting technologies are key technology to maximize percentage of recycled CDW from less than 50% up to 90-95%

also optimizing quality of each fraction/material for high value applications. The proposed project is based on three major innovations: 1. The sensing technology, based on 3D/RGB cameras and IR sensors; 2. The control strategy coordinating the sensing technology and programming the robot cell motion; 3. The mechatronic system, that will include advanced grasping technology.

The international consortium is composed of Spanish organizations INDAGO and PRODINTEC, as well as Italian coordinator Movi.TEC (SME), INTELECTRO (Ruman SME) and Ruman university T.U. Iasi, and Italian subcontractors STAM (Italian SME) and KUKA (Italian subsidiary).

At national level, the project is funded by CDTI – Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico Industrial, number EXP - 00108807 / SERA-20181014..
