Digitalization

Digitalisation in the waste management sector

And it is becoming clear that digitalisation can be implemented more cheaply and more straightforwardly than thought.

The majority of waste management companies are aware that they have to be found on the internet. According to an article by BVSE, the majority already have a presence in social media such as Xing, LinkedIn and relevant associations. Just over half of those surveyed advertise online and more than 40 percent either have a shop system or will set one up in the future.

For 70 percent of the waste management companies of the future, on the other hand, service portals are an important service extension. Electronic invoice processing or CRM software can already be implemented cost-effectively by small companies, while comprehensive ERP systems unfold their advantages in larger organisations.

According to most waste management experts, digital container registration, live container tracking and fill level measurement will play a major role. Mobile level sensors and a routing platform like BrighterBins offer full control over the bins, their contents and collection.
So, what prevents most waste management companies from carrying out both small and large digitalisation projects?

A lack of interfaces between service providers and their own infrastructure, technical standards that can be expanded were the most frequently mentioned answer. In addition, there was the expectation that the investment costs would be too high. A lack of competences in the company (37.5%) and the interruption of daily business deter decision-makers and users alike from even thinking about starting a digitization project.

BrighterBins, for example, has taken on these problems and developed level sensors that can be connected to any API and customer platform and minimises the technical effort. Within ten minutes, the sensor is installed and “ready to use”. The platform offers much more than GPS localisation and a user interface tailored to user rights and needs.

Prague to pilot large-scale, dynamic waste collection

As of spring of 2021, the Czech capital will pilot collecting waste via automated routes able to dynamically respond to changes in waste production and the city’s infrastructure.

Dynamic waste collection is part of an ambitious project of Sensoneo focused on the demonstration of environmental and economic benefits resulting from large-scale deployment of the Sensoneo solution. Given the scope and the tools applied, it is an ultimate and revolutionary model example at a global level. The project is co-funded by the Horizon2020 program of the European Innovation Council.

Thanks to efficient collection planning, the city of Prague will be able to systematically decrease the environmental impact related to the waste collection process, maximize efficiency of the currently available vehicles (trucks) and employ flexibility in the case of unanticipated changes. The ongoing pandemic of COVID-19 is one such example, as it is profoundly changing traditional waste generation patterns and standard collection frequencies, and the current routes are not able to flexibly cope with these changes.

„Cities around the world face challenges related to growing urbanism, increasing volume of waste and insufficient flexibility, which has been now even more highlighted with the ongoing pandemic. Innovative technologies, which we will test during the pilot project, follow Prague’s strategy, focused on sustainability and a circular economy. I am convinced that this project will contribute to our plan of making Prague an active initiator of green technologies.” adds Petr Hlubuček, Deputy Mayor of Prague for the Environment, Infrastructure, Technical Equipment and Safety.

The project, unprecedented and unique by its large-scale deployment, includes the following procedures:

  • Collection Efficiency Analysis (AS-IS ANALYSIS) for all waste commodities using Sensoneo’s unique method, based on processing all currently available data related to containers, vehicles and realized routes – provides the identification of weak points and opportunities for savings and improvement of the quality of service;
  • Set-up of the new cycling routes and frequencies (TO-BE ANALYSIS) in order to increase the continuous efficiency and quality of service, combines the shortest possible routes, on-time collection, and maximum possible utilization of vehicle capacity with the long-term goal to reduce the number of vehicles used during waste collection;
  • Collecting waste via automated routes (flexibly reflecting daily specific requirements) using Sensoneo’s navigation, which is tailor-made for the unique requirements of individual waste collection vehicles -> this facilitates the employment of drivers without prior driving experience in particular districts or particular routes;
  • Final evaluation – showcases savings (time, cost, fuel, emissions) with a BEFORE-AFTER comparison

Along with the above, the project also includes the realtime monitoring of 550 containers for electronic waste with Sensoneo sensors to optimize waste collection, ensure sufficient free capacity for citizens and thus, support the recycling of this commodity. The operation part of the project will take one year. The city of Prague thus receives a unique opportunity to live-test the technology, which has the objective to cope with the current waste challenges in cities.

The preparation phase of the project has already started and the launch of the operational phase is scheduled for March 2021. The entire project, including the evaluation, will run until September 2022.

This project is co-funded by the Horizon2020 program of the European Innovation Council under the Agreement no 101010676.

Tomra: eBook unveiaboutling the potential of connected machines

The recycling industry is at the advent of discovering the power of data reported by connected optical sorting equipment. This capability is ushering in a new era of data-driven process optimization suggests the new eBook, “Digitalization – Connect to Enhance Productivity in the Recycling Industry,” from the global leader in sensor-based sorting, Tomra Sorting Recycling.

Prior to Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), production data remained local to optical sorters, making it difficult to harvest and analyze. Now, through embedded sensors and cloud-based reporting, optical sorters are turned into data delivery machines to drive the strategic management process. Near real-time data gives insight into production gaps, allows companies to react faster to change and improves recycled product quality and throughput.

The free-to-download eBook examines that stored service reports, spare parts orders and product manuals improve machine maintenance efficiency. It also peers into the not-so-distant-future where leveraged production data, combined with advanced analytics, will result in the development of new sorting technologies and processes that will improve sorting efficiency and boost final product purity.

Analysis of efficiency of waste collection routes

Collection Efficiency Analysis uses 90 days of data from waste collection companies regarding containers and realized routes to uncover the actual efficiency of the current waste collection set-up in terms of cost, time, utilization and quality of service.

Analysis includes

  • Data Quality Validation
  • Recommendation for specific strategic measures to be taken in order to make the process more efficient,
  • and a Simulation of the impacts of each individual measure.

The first waste collection companies that completed the Analysis have identified a 36-64% potential for more efficient operation, direct links between specific types of containers and extreme costs, and huge gaps in recordings such as „unfinished driving“ or missing unloading tickets.

The companies also appreciated the projection of new cyclic routes that better utilized their current infrastructure and enabled them to serve the same number of customers with a smaller fleet.

The Analysis is available for any waste collection company able to provide data related to container infrastructure (volume, commodity, address, type, last pick-up and pick-up frequency) and a detailed record of the run routes (vehicles, assigned containers, length of the route in km and moto/hours, amount of waste collected). Collection Efficiency Analysis is not region nor language-restricted.
