Separation of materials requires identifying the appropriate characteristic by which sorting can be done, and optimized. Key separation characteristics are size, weight, density, hardness, magnetism, electrical conductivity and light refraction.

BioCycle magazine, BioCycle.net and BioCycle Conferences are your go-to source for recovering the maximum value out of every ton of organic waste and wastewater generated. BioCycle shows how to process organic residuals — yard trimmings, food waste, woody materials, biosolids, manure, high strength organic wastes, municipal solid waste (MSW), and other source separated feedstocks into value-added products — and create jobs and green enterprises. Products include compost and engineered soils, biogas-derived electricity, vehicle fuels and renewable natural gas. Products that renew agricultural and urban soils, reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
