The challenges of scale and security
Airports are complex environments with lots of people moving through them in a limited amount of time. Airports also have a high demand for security and safety. The Envac systems helps face the immense logistical challenges of any airport, making waste collection cost-efficient and secure.
As general waste bags from in-coming flights are disposed of into the system directly on the apron or at the gate, there is no need for manual transportation through security or custom filters.
Our waste inlets are well distributed over arrival/departure halls, leisure areas and at the gates. The inlets are connected to a hermetically sealed pipe network hidden in the fabric of the building. The waste is transported in the pipes to containers in a waste collection station, typically located on the outskirts of the airport.
As an option, all litter bins can be connected to the system, avoiding frequent manual emptying routines.
Going green and cost-efficient
Our system is not only a way to improve the environment for travellers and airport personnel. It is also a way to reduce the airport’s impact on the climate and reach a high level in Airport Carbon Accreditation as the Envac system runs on electricity only. In traditional handling combustion engines are often used for the on-ground transportation which affects the air quality.
Our system can help airline catering facilities improve their levels of recycling. It makes it easier to use the gross amounts of food waste as an environmental resource in biogas production or composting, all while being clean, smart, and cost-efficient.
