Envac leads the way in providing cost-efficient, smart and sustainable waste handling systems for airports. The Envac systems collect waste 24 hours a day, all days of the year, creating a clean and fresh first impression for travellers and a safe, hygienic working environment for airport staff. Our systems handle waste and recyclables in terminal buildings, administrative offices, and airport hotels. In addition, we can offer a Kitchen Waste System that handles waste from all operations in the airport catering facilities.

Waste disposal points

The system handles both recyclables and waste. By pushing a button on the inlet, staff directs the bag to the correct chute for temporary storage. The control system automatically empties one chute at a time.

As general waste bags from in-coming flights is disposed of into the system directly on the apron or at the gate, there is no need for manual transportation on carts or trolleys.

For the environment

Envac's system eliminates the need for waste collection trucks at airports, significantly reducing traffic-related emissions of exhaust gases and carbon dioxide (CO2). This contributes to a cleaner environment and a more sustainable future for air travel.

Terminal buildings

The Envac system implemented at airports is a sophisticated network of pipes, strategically integrated behind walls, within ceilings, and in subterranean service corridors. Disposal points for waste bags, accessible to cleaning staff, are placed throughout the building, covering both airside and landside areas.

Waste bags are momentarily held in a vertical chute, secured by a valve at the bottom. When sensors detect that the chute is nearing capacity, a signal is sent to the control system to initiate an emptying cycle. The bags are then transported by an airflow to a waste collection station situated outside the airport building, ensuring efficient and safe waste management.

Waste collection station

Envac's waste collection station is strategically located near a main road for easy access. This eliminates the need for multiple trucks to drive to each building. Instead, waste from all locations is efficiently collected at this central station.

Automatically controlled

Envac's intelligent Envac Automation Platform (EAP) automatically controls all processes.
