About LLA Instruments
Based in Berlin, LLA Instruments was founded in 1993 by physicist Dr. Hartmut Lucht. Initial developments included laser spectroscopy-based measurement systems for applications in biomedicine, environmental technology, and industrial applications; but the company soon pivoted towards establishing the basics, further developing, and marketing automatic sensor-based sorting systems for plastics.
As market leaders in recycling, LLA has become increasingly known across the globe, especially to machine builders for plastics sorting, as a renowned developer, manufacturer, and supplier of imaging spectral analytical measurement technology and hyperspectral cameras.
