The municipality of Rotterdam will introduce the second phase of a waste management data analytics and route planning project with Finnish Enevo and its Dutch partner TWS.

Netherland’s second largest city will extend the use of Enevo’s solutions for paper and cardboard collection and recycling.

The project extension includes doubling the number of monitored waste containers. It will also increase the use of Enevo smart plan software that enables optimised route planning system to 40 per cent of the underground paper and card waste containers in Rotterdam.

“This essential development is helping us to eliminate static collection routes and bring a focus on only emptying containers which need servicing,” outlined Joost van Maaren, head of Collection and Reuse of Waste at the municipality of Rotterdam.

“Just as 60 other global cities have already found working in partnership with Enevo, Rotterdam has been able to do more with less. Not only is predictive waste management system an effective way to reduce the cost of waste handling, it can also help to incentivise reuse and recycling, and build the circular economy,” Charbel Aoun, Enevo chief of Sales and Strategy, says.

The Enevo waste management solution brings together waste container monitoring, data analytics and fill-level forecasting, dynamic route planning and driver route guidance via in-cab tablet computers.

Enevo is headquartered in Espoo, Finland, with offices in the US, UK, Germany, Hong Kong and Japan. The company is investing heavily in geographic expansion.
