How Technology Can Help with Efficient Waste Management

Food and Beverages | Thursday, September 09, 2021

The most efficient way to handle solid waste is by developing an integrated system that includes advanced tech, the waste management industry, and the public sector.

FREMONT, CA: Various technologies are available for the management and treatment of solid waste. The most efficient method to handle garbage, as is widely known, is to create an integrated system that includes high tech, the waste management industry, and the public sector. According to research, the smart municipal solid waste technology market would reach $6.5 billion by 2023. Integration of related industries can create new motives for increasing value generated and leading to the expansion of markets for recovered goods.

When it comes to technology, it's critical to understand the role of waste management innovations. The latest methods and solutions are reforming processes in the correct direction.

The New Innovations in the Sector.


One of the most significant advances in the waste management sector is generating actual power from the garbage. Instead of accumulating waste in landfills, this technology tries to transform waste into energy. Digesters generate biogas from many types of waste, like food, agriculture, and other sources, and convert it into energy for use on-site. The importance of thermal energy conversion in the waste-to-energy innovation idea cannot be overstated.

Software for Waste Management

Today, many well-known companies profit from SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) platforms that provide innovative digitized platforms for the most effective waste management procedure. These platforms refer to solutions that make it easier to deal with industrial difficulties and improve performance.

Internet of Things (IoT)

The Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing technology allow waste management organizations to optimize transportation routes and timing data by providing high-tech sensors. Haulers determine where full waste containers are stored and when they must be collected during the process. By minimizing unnecessary pickups, IoT hopes to increase performance and save money.

Waste-to-Raw Material

The need to reuse garbage productively, and advancements in this area, has grown significantly. By removing plastics and cellulose fiber from waste items, businesses can turn them into a source of raw material. This operation needs the use of autoclave sterilizing technology. Autoclaves can be defined as heat treatment processing units used to kill bacteria before they are disposed of.

Robotic Trash Cans           

The most advanced inventions are robotic wheeled trash containers that roll out on their own at the touch of a button. This idea is particularly beneficial to people who have restricted movement and motor abilities. Motorized garbage containers with wheels that drive themselves to the street are another innovation in this area.
