Reducing traffic and emissions
Conventional waste collection creates significant amounts of traffic, with industrial vehicles typically required to enter residential and commercial areas. With Envac, this is no longer necessary. Our waste inlets are connected to an underground pipe network that transports waste directly to a collection station as far as 2 km away from the inlets.
At the collection station, the waste is stored in large containers and collected by the waste contractor – but only when full. This single collection movement replaces multiple daily collections, often by multiple collection vehicles.
The whole operation, from inlet to container, is managed by Envac’s smart automation platform.
All these features combined means that the Envac system help reducing heavy traffic and associated emissions with up to 90 per cent in the area. Traffic jams, noise and unsafe street environment related to collection traffic are avoided. This makes our system a natural choice when making the city smarter, cleaner and more sustainable.
