Wasteloop

Centralized local compactions for waste collection and recycling

Identification

Wasteloop is a different approach to waste management. Citizens dispose of waste via 24/7 available compactors which are silently exchanged with an electric vehicle driven by renewable energy when they are full.

This waste disposal system offers public collecting points where waste is compacted directly on site. Centralised local compactions not only multiplies the capacity of collecting points, but also reduces the number of emptying trips – thus reducing the amount of times the truck has to make stop and go movements which consumes a large amount of energy. If a compactor is nearly full, an automatically generated message is sent to the operational headquarter. That means only full compactors will be emptied, guaranteeing a minimal number of emptying trips while all compactor exchanges are made with a fully electric vehicle.

Label Date February 2019
From Switzerland
Maturity stage Initial market commercialization
Looking For Forward thinking communes which are ready to implement a pilot test to prove the potential of our new system in urban areas. Partners to share the knowledge with and distribute Wasteloop in Europe.
