Intelligent robotics system able to sort different waste streams into colored bags

Identification

With Waste Robotics system, citizen now put organics in a green bag and can dump it into their existing garbage bin. At the sorting point, the organic bag is sorted and stored by an intelligent robot system.

Waste Robotics offers systems, which did not exist 4 or 5 years ago, and makes it possible to compete with an increase of performance and economies over Capex and Opex. Technological advances in recent years have made it possible to put artificial intelligence and robotics at the service of the environment at more affordable costs. The Waste Robotics system uses cutting-edge alternative technology that has more capacity than human sorters. Waste Robotic offers an avant-garde process which makes possible the selective collection of different types of residual materials (and namely organics) by the use of separate bags of different colours, using Waste Robotic's optical sorting. This allows a single picking of residual garbage and organics and promotes maximum citizen participation while ensuring optimum quality in sorting materials. Thanks to its simplicity, Unicollecte is convenient and cheaper than traditional "brown" or "green" collection bin, while reducing trucking and GHG emission.

The environmental benefits

  • A single line system can handle 25 tonnes / hour of garbage and recover 10 tonnes / hour of source-separated-organics
  • The system is autonomous, easily adaptable and can recover bio-waste with a purity of more than 98%, 24h/24 and 7d/7
  • Waste Robotics' WR-1 system reduces GHG emissions by 44 kg eCO2 / year per person
  • WR-1 enables better selective collection and allows the recovery of an additionnal 48 kg of organics per year per person
03.

The Financial benefits

  • OPEX - The use of bag collection remarkably reduces the costs of recovering organic matter, by € 30 per year per household
  • CAPEX - The system avoid to pay for additional garbage bins (±50€ per household) and the acquisition cost of a WR-1 system is 50% less that of a competition
