Single-Stream & Dual-Stream Sorting

The CP Group, and therefore MSS as one of its divisions, has been the leader in single-stream separation and dual-stream sorting technology, raising the bar of performance across the industry in the US and around the world. Our fully automated single stream recycling and dual stream sorting systems separate your commingled recyclables into the most marketable end-products.

Ultra-Efficient Separation, Powerful Optical Sorters

There are several areas in a MRF where MSS optical sorters are in a position to provide added value for our customers. The automated sorting of plastic bottles into the different types and colors (PET, HDPE Natural, HDPE Colored, PP, PVC, #3-#7 plastics) is certainly one of the most common applications. Secondly, the removal prohibitive and out throws from the newspaper and/or mixed paper stream can only be achieved by applying optical sorting technology. Last but not least, MSS’ optical sorters for glass can further beneficiate the broken glass cullet generated, by the upstream mechanical processing system.

CIRRUS PlasticMax

PlasticMax™ provides the most accurate separation of all plastic resins in all types of waste management facilities. All PlasticMax™ optical sorters combine high-resolution NIR, color, and metal sensors to accurately sort a wide variety of materials, using advanced algorithms. Our proprietary MaxSelect™ sequential scanning technology provides the best combination of scan rate, number of wavelengths and NIR wavelength range (up to 2,500nm). The integrated ClearLight™ technology provides the best signal-to-noise ratio of any optical sorter in the industry because MSS doesn’t use gratings or light beam splitters.


FiberMax™ provides operation flexibility and top of the line sensing capabilities to either extract fiber from mixed input streams or separate paper into the various gradesl. The integrated MaxSelect™ technology utilizes patented sequential scanning technology for the highest-definition image possible. ClearLight™ technology provides the best signal-to-noise ratio of any optical sorter in the recycling industry. MSS doesn’t use gratings or light beam splitters, so detectors receive the maximum amount of reflected light possible, allowing for the most accurate detection.


Our longest running sensor-based technology! For over 30 years, we have used our proprietary induction-based metal detection technology in many different applications. The latest generation provides maximum sensitivity at low cost and durability. As a stand-alone unit, the MetalSort™ provides for the removal of metal contaminants (ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless) at high efficiency.
