Talking about Circular Economy means thinking about Waste Management. Among its fundamentals, this new paradigm includes the famous 4 Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Recover.
This makes it possible to move from a linear to a circular economy, where materials and energy circulate and are preserved within the system.
What is the role of waste management in the circular economy?
To answer this question, we only need to look at the real purpose of the concepts of Recover and Recycle. These two activities are only possible through an efficient waste collection and treatment system.
Recover: Recover wherever possible the energy stored in the non-recyclable waste material.
Recycling: reprocessing materials in such a way as to return them to their original state, creating the so called “second raw materials” (since they are raw materials for second time).
Communication with the citizen
The role of waste collection companies begins long before the citizen throws their waste. Waste collection companies play a key role in communicating and promoting best practices, such as proper household waste sorting.
In collaboration with the waste collection company CIDIU, moltosenso has developed the CIDIU4U app, creating a new channel of communication with citizens.
The value of secondary raw materials
A better sorting of various materials has an impact on the quality and quantity of secondary raw materials that can be produced. Better sorting means greater purity, which allows more products to be manufactured from these materials, and thus reducing the need for new resources.
Data management and waste management
Thanks to the new technologies that enable the collection and analysis of large volumes of data, waste collection companies are able to fully optimize their operations. Today, it is possible to better understand people’s trends and behaviors, how they handle, separate and dispose their waste. This allows the development of more efficient communication systems with the citizens. But above all, it allows the creation of new systems to optimize the collection routes, such as the Synopsis system developed by moltosenso, which reduce costs and guarantee a stable and higher quality flow of materials that can then become secondary raw materials.
