About the Horizon 2020 SmartWASTE Project
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 724613
The Horizon 2020 SmartWASTE project is addressing some significant EU-wide challenges within the Waste Industry:
The key problem in waste collection today is the use of static routes and schedules: truck drivers are driving “blindly” from bin to bin and collecting containers that can be either half empty or over filled. This adds up to a large amount of unnecessary costs, such as operational time, fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Globally, over 400 million waste containers are being served by millions of trucks every day, and 50 % of the value in the market is in the logistics. Enevo is a growing Finnish technology company that aims to capitalize on this business opportunity and become the #1 supply chain platform for waste and recycling operations worldwide.
Enevo’s Waste Services enables cities, waste producers and waste management companies to transform their waste collection operations into a demand based model.
The objective of the SmartWASTE project is to scale-up and expand the service into new European regions by piloting the solution with potential customers in large scale projects. Through piloting, Enevo gains important feedback that is provided back to product development to improve Enevo’s offering and functionality to be better suited for large scale regional expansion and commercial deployment.
Enevo received funding for the Horizon 2020 SmartWASTE project in 2016. The project duration is June 2016 – May 2019.
