Tech trends in the waste industry
Updated: Apr 4, 2019
The waste industry is experiencing a deep transformation. It is challenged geopolitically, it faces an increased pressure to achieve less environmental impact, and increase safety of its workers while reducing its operating costs. The equation seems nearly impossible to solve, unless technologies come to our rescue. Which is likely the case for numerous issues we face in the industry.
The main trend is in full automation of operations. It often relies on advanced machine vision, and it aims to make our operations so much more efficient. Robots are arriving in our transfer stations and recycling facilities to sort trash out. You can check out Amprobotics or even this Waste Robotics.
