Smart Waste Management
Urbanization and rising demand for resources call for more efficient use of resources and better waste management. T-systems provides through their Smart Waste Management solution garbage collection companies with the information they need to collect waste as effectively and efficiently as possible (e.g. garbage truck route planning based on actual needs). Waste collection is a key aspect of smart cities.
This solution enables more efficient collection and cost savings thanks to route planning based on actual needs and 4 to 8 times greater container capacity thanks to waste compaction. It also results in up to 40% less gas consumption thanks to more targeted, more intelligent route planning, saved resources through urban mining (recovering natural resources including rare earths) and incinerating waste (generating heat and electricity hence saving oil and gas), and better quality of life thanks to less litter, less noise, and less pollution.
