Empower businesses in their strategies

Published on 13/11/2019

The smart waste collection market is attracting considerable attention given its importance in making cities more eco-friendly. However, existing decision support systems generally rely on a limited information flow and often offer a static or statistical approach, focusing on specific use-cases such as individuals or municipalities.

LIST and Polygone Sárl are co-designing, building and testing a smart waste collection platform for businesses. The platform will offer data analytics and multi-objective optimization models that combine business, customer and operational criteria among which data generated by fill-level sensor technologies integrated into waste bins. Fill levels, distances, customers’ needs/constraints, truck capacity, time management for drivers and collection centre position are considered to reduce the environmental impact and to maximize service quality. This approach, a first in Luxembourg, will open the way to the development of new services in the waste management sector.

How it helps?

  • Reduces environmental impact
  • Optimizes overall collection costs
  • Personalizes high-quality services based on data
  • Develops new customer profiling models using prediction techniques
  • Creates new business models

If you want to know more, don't miss the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona on 19-21 November. LIST will present the smart waste collection platform along with other solutions to empower citizens, businesses and public authorities.
