The process of solid waste management and offering diversity of solutions for recycling of items which doesn’t belong to trash. It just about how the garbage can be converted into the valuable resource. Waste management is something which is the actual need of each households and the business owner in the world. Waste management is just disposing of the products and the substances being used in a safe and most efficient manner.
With the urban metropolises requirements more effective collection of waste material and processed services, waste management has been becoming the global issue. Alone in the United States about more than 230 million garbage is being produced annually, equal to the 4.6 pounds of waste per person.
It is essential for the communities to manage municipal solid waste (MSW) leaving out the plenty of room for innovation. MSW is considered to be as the big business where communities and businesses strives out for the consumption minimization and engaging in more effective recovery of waste. This is all done through the development of the technologies of smart waste. The aim of reducing waste and fees collection by adding the emerging technologies to the collection process is signified by these innovative projects.
RFID tags have been also introduced in order to reduce the waste into the numerous communities for the residents to pay the fees if they throw out the garbage. As each time a bin is being emptied a monthly fee is being charged by the residents of different communities, separating the cost of recycled disposal from the garbage.
With the advancement in the industry of the waste management through the infusing modern technology in the storage and transportation of refuse trims out the costs of the resources, and also helps in contributing towards creation of the sustainable environments of the urban areas.
With the automation process and introduction of the renewable form of energy as a powering means said by the technology, money and time have been saved on the top of the reduction of wasteful emissions. These integrated projects are being optimized by the process and also others which made the industry of waste management less wasteful.
Let us consider some of the great examples of waste management :
1. Electric Garbage Trucks
With the great rise in the adoption of the electric vehicles, some of the manufacturers such as Tesla are leading as many of the electric cars are being crowded in the automobile industry because of the increase in production. It was therefore something unsurprising for the co-founder of Tesla who made this technology applied to the garbage trucks. These resulting trucks are more quiet and efficient and made themselves to reduce the waste by products through receiving the power from the packs of battery as well as exhibiting the electric trains. As the traditional garbage trucks are being replaced by the electric garbage trucks which would help in reducing the fuel consumption to 67 percent and also the costs of vehicle maintenance be around 25000$ every year.
2. Integration of IoT and Smart Garbage Cans
It is of no surprise as IoT (Internet of Things) and some other technologies have started entering into the industries of waste and recycling management. In order to provide some more simpler solution for the optimization of routes and also the operational analytics to reduce the costs where around the globe companies are getting more creative in order to make the technology more better for managing the waste and recycle management.
Sensors are being utilized by the smart cans which helps in measuring the full cans of garbage, informing the local services of waste management for getting the cans to get empty and also which cans are made to leave alone. It is no longer an issue for the encountering of the empty containers installed with the sensors in order to save time and fuel so that the routes of the garbage trucks are being modified by the waste managers accordingly.
3. Robots for the Trash collection
In the coming future robots for the automated collection of garbage can now be expected, as in now contributing to the more efficient system of waste management. A project named “Robot-based Autonomous Refuse Handling” has been by the partners named Volvo and many more for developing these robots.
