8-3-2022 Sensoneo developed a unique software solution for deposit return scheme, which makes the Slovak scheme one of the most advanced deposit systems globally. That is why it was presented as an example of circular economy best practice to King William-Alexander of the Netherlands, Queen Máxima and President of the Slovak Republic Zuzana Čaputová.
Martin Basila, co-founder and CEO of Sensoneo, presented deposit return system software solution, which uses state-of-the-art technology to maximise the efficiency of the system. Sensoneo’s system enables the scheme stakeholders to make the most out of the post-consumer recycling potential as it optimizes and automates the operations, drives efficiency, facilitates transparency, and introduces an easy-to-use approach. Martin Basila also talked about the uniqueness of engaging smaller retailers on a voluntary basis through manual collection, who have been able to join the system virtually since its launch. Such a solution allows them to deliver better customer service as well as increases their competitiveness.
In addition to the deposit system itself, Martin Basila talked also about other innovations that Sensoneo is bringing to the waste management sector. Waste monitoring tools using smart sensors, optimization of collection routes or smart waste solutions for factories not only bring greater efficiency to waste management, but also significantly contribute to sustainability and the circular economy.
As Marin Basila says,
“The Netherlands is a leader in the circular economy movement, so it was a great honour for me to present Sensoneo’s Slovak technology and the work of my colleagues to the Dutch Royal Couple and the President of the Slovak Republic. At the same time, I am grateful to the President and her office for giving a platform to Slovak innovative companies. It is an extraordinary recognition of the work we are doing and has given us the energy to keep on innovating and further expanding our smart solutions.”
Sensoneo co-founder Andrea Basilová also participated in The Future Is Now business forum at the Bratislava Castle, which focused mainly on exchanging experiences and establishing cooperation in the field of green transition. The event was attended by more than 250 guests from the Netherlands and Slovakia from almost 150 companies, making it one of the largest of its kind. Andrea Basilova, together with Raymond Gianotten, Director of the Dutch deposit return system operator (Statiegeld Nederland), highlighted the importance of cooperation and partnership building. Andrea Basilova thanked Mr Gianotten for the valuable know-how and recommendations he shared with the team of the Slovak Deposit Return System Administrator during the preparation of the system and thus contributed to its successful launch.
