MSS AI Sorting Solutions

VIVID AI™ is a powerful sortation machine, featuring deep-learning capabilities that are complementary to conventional near-infrared (NIR) optical sorters. It provides deeper levels of available granularity for finer classifications of individual product and material categories.

Vivid AI™ is the latest technology in AI-powered automation and intelligence for recycling systems. It is the first family of technology offerings to offer not only a vacuum-based mechanical arm effector, but also a positive pressure air ejection method of extraction.

Powered by Recycleye, VIVID AI™ builds on the identification capabilities that NIR does not have, most prominently in MRFs sorting items like cat food cans and cooking foils from used aluminum beverage cans (UBCs) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles from PET thermoforms.

Dynamic pairings

Pair the right detection method with the right extraction method! At MSS, we are of the firm belief that sensing technology needs to be completely decoupled from the extraction technology; one really has nothing to do with the other. With this in mind, MSS offers different extraction technologies depending on the application.


  • Reduced headcount: less employee turnover and training
  • Safety: fewer employees means decreased safety risk
  • Recovery: sorts more classifications of material than previously possible
  • Extraction: material sorting with air ejection or mechanical arm
  • Purity: increase commodity purity and improve quality
