Factory Waste Management

Waste is produced all over the production lines in the factory (unpackaging, cutting, clipping …). As material logistics and the whole production flow are carefully coordinated, such attention needs to be paid to the waste collection as well. Sensoneo introduces tools designed to automate Waste collection in a factory with ease. 

Sensoneo provides smart enterprise-grade waste management solutions for businesses and cities to efficiently manage the waste lifecycle, improve the environment and well-being of people. Factory Waste Management solution combines Smart Buttons and/or Smart Sensors, Smart Waste Management System, a powerful cloud-based platform, and a Collection App for Drivers.

The solution is simple to integrate and you can have it up and running in just 7 working days.

Challanges for Waste Management in factories

01  Overflowing bins disrupt well-managed and optimized production flow

02  Collection of half-empty bins is wasting resources and disrupting production workforce

03  Manual collection planning requires human resources and is time-consuming

04  Lack of data on the process results in unnecessary costs

05  Missing insights from waste production with the production process itself

Fullness notification

Fullness notification

Smart Button allows assigned personnel to indicate that the bin is full. Upon pressing, it sends notifications to the Sensoneo Platform. Smart Sensors feed Sensoneo Platform with live measurements on bin fullness several times a day. Both Button and Sensor can be placed on bins and containers of various types and sizes and send notification from both indoor and outdoor locations.
Smart Button is a simple and cost-efficient tool for manual fullness notification. Smart Sensor is a reliable and effortless tool for automatic fullness notification.

Platform for Operators

Platform for Operators

The Operator immediately sees all the full bins in Dashboard and Route Planning Engine automatically recalculates the routes to accommodate the new full bin. Both Dashboard and Route Planning Engine are part of Smart Waste Management System, a powerful, cloud-based platform designed by Sensoneo.
You can create a detailed database of all the bins including trash types, capacities, bin locations, and bin pickup points. Dashboard consolidates all the data from Smart Buttons, Smart Sensors and Collection App. It provides quick access to all the bins, planned/ongoing/ executed routes, pickups and reported fill levels. The operator has full control over waste collection operation remotely.

Collection Planning Engine

Collection Planning Engine can accommodate multiple rules and count in different variables. The Engine is recalculating routes every minute to accommodate new “full bin” notifications.
Example of variables
Vehicle capacity, bin capacity, trash type, bin type, work schedule
Example of rules
The bin must be emptied within 60 minutes from fullness notification. The driver always has to take the oldest route available. Trash type A and B can be collected at once, but type C has to be collected separately. Trash type D is collected on-demand and type F has a fixed frequency 1x day.

Collection App for Drivers

Collection App for Drivers

Collection App is a mobile app available for Android devices. We designed the Dashboard in Smart Waste Management System for Operators and Collection App for Drivers. Collection App helps drivers navigate the premises and identify bins for collection. Drivers can share feedback with Operator via the app – manual service verification that bin was emptied including fullness indication (traffic light system).
Collection App sends all the data to the Sensoneo Platform and Operator has remote control.

Analytics Dashboard in Smart Waste Management System is where the operator follows everyday operations via
Analytics on every single bin/pickups, fill level
Analytics on executed routes/length, bins, costs
Specific needs?
We are happy to source our data to fully customizable dashboards in Smart Analytics (Qlik platform) to help you run a more efficient operation and report easily to management.

Express deployment

Factory Waste Collection solution can be up and running within 7 working days. We require certain information to set up the operation such as factory layout and bin positions to feed into Smart Waste Management System. Once the system perfectly knows your operations and schedules, it is ready to manage your waste collection.
