Wasteloop (Patent Alpenluft)

The solution enables a waste collection which is significantly more efficient, quieter and cleaner. The new approach based on local waste compaction not only reduces the number of transports, but also requires much less space in public areas. Full compactors are simply replaced and no longer emptied on site, which reduces noise emissions to a minimum and allows disposal at any time of day or night. The clever combination of small compactors and the all-electric vehicle offers municipalities a new perspective and scores particularly well in the area of sustainability. "Wasteloop" is the alternative for municipalities looking for energy-efficient, low-emission waste disposal to achieve sustainability goals.
