Envac contributing to UN Sustainable Development Goals
One of the sustainable development goal is to improve health and safety of the people. Our system promotes user safety and health as it prevents unsanitary conditions, odours, and vermin, and our touchless technology reduces the transmission of infections.
As waste collection traffic is reduced in densely populated areas, deaths and injuries from traffic accidents are minimised. Our solutions for hospitals promote safer handling of contaminated laundry, as well as medical waste within the hospital. The traditional waste collection includes regular cleaning of waste containers, increasing water consumption as well as the apparent risk of contaminating groundwater resources. Water consumption for cleaning can be as high as 200 liters per inhabitant each year. Our innovative system minimises this pressure on water supplies and helps reach the UN goal of improved water management globally.
Envac’s system and services help reach the UN goals of responsible consumption and production by bringing the waste collection into the circular economy. Our system can handle several fractions of waste and with our sorting system, recycling is made easy and cost-efficient, re-using resources in a never-ending loop. Also, sorted food waste can be used to produce bioenergy and biofertilizers.
