waste management

In 2010, 2.5 billion tons of waste were produced in Europe, most of which was burned or landfilled. Only 36% was recycled. Although this percentage is increasing, there are still millions of tons of “untapped” waste that are a source of secondary raw materials. The key for achieving change is transforming our perception of waste as a problem to waste as a resource.

The circular economy offers an alternative to our traditional linear model by using resources for as long as possible, extracting their maximum value, and then recycling, upcycling and regenerating them. With the help of connected devices, big data and AI, the digital circular economy will make a zero-waste society a reality. To use our waste better, we need to understand where is it produced, in what quantities and who could (re)use it. And, this is exactly the kind of information complex predictive data can provide.

Who for?

  • Construction companies and developers
  • Supermarkets and retailers
  • Manufacturers and artisans
  • Local authorities

Business as usual, but better

  • Monetize construction waste by finding local factories, craftsmen and manufacturers to (re)use it
  • Optimize the location and upkeep of garbage and recycling containers in cities
  • Find restaurants interested in buying “ugly foods” that would otherwise end up as waste
  • Find new sources of cheap materials by screening the waste produced by local businesses

Create innovative services

  • Create a platform to match waste produced by individuals and local transport/storage systems with industry and business needs
  • Start a regional market to sort and sell construction waste e.g. by type of material
  • Analyze the type of waste being produced (and not recycled) to redesign products for future upcycling or recycling
