Birdz, a subsidiary of Veolia and pioneer in environmental IoT, and Sensoneo, a specialist in Smart Waste solutions for cities and businesses, announced a strategic partnership aimed at accelerating their joint development in the international market of intelligent management and recovery of waste.
A need to optimize waste collection for better management
To support cities and businesses in this issue, Birdz, already acclaimed by more than 3,300 cities for its environmental IoT solutions, is today forging a partnership with Sensoneo, an international company based in Slovakia that operates in 60 countries, and whose solutions are aimed to make the world a cleaner place by improving waste management. Through several dedicated Smart Waste offers (Asset Management, Waste Monitoring, and Collection Planner), Sensoneo succeeds in reducing waste collection routes by 30-63% which directly impacts emissions and fuel and enables customers to monitor actual waste production with 97% off accuracy.
Combining the expertise
This partnership will allow the two players to combine their expertise to bring an innovative and complete Smart Waste solution to the international market. The offer will initially focus on Voluntary Contribution Points (PAVs – street bins with either public or private access) and will then extend to access control issues, particularly interesting for local authorities setting up incentive pricing systems according to the principle of polluter pays.
With a historic presence in the Smart Water market, Birdz has been extending its expertise to all Smart City issues for several years to support its customers in meeting the challenge of digital transformation. With more than 3.4 million connected objects deployed, Birdz collects and analyses 350 million pieces of data every day to identify the biggest ecological problems and provide concrete solutions.
Following the announcement of this partnership, Birdz and Sensoneo aim to launch a joint offer on the market by the first quarter of 2022.
