A Hyperspectral camera inspection technology that can spatially resolve chemical data. The chemical sensitivity range of a Hyperspectral camera can be tailored, by choosing the spectral range (VIS, VISNIR, NIR and SWIR), to suit any given application. Chemical Imaging can thus classify objects and/or parts of objects according to their chemical composition and can output chemical distribution maps that are not affected by the colour of objects. The sensitivity to chemical data makes it possible to quantitatively measure chemical properties such as dry matter, protein, starch, caloric value, moisture, different plastics, the difference between deinking and non-deinking paper and cardboard, PET vs. Trays, construction and demolition waste.
