The iWASTE project derives from the need to innovate the industrial waste treatment, constantly changing and miscellaneous nature of waste streams, both liquid and solid, on the basis of different input loads (dozens of trucks and tankers). This heterogeneity implies a considerable variability in waste treatment, depending on the input material characteristics. Therefore, it is technically impossible to plan and optimize the workflows, producing discontinuity and inefficiency in the management, which causes higher power consumption.
The goal of the iWaste is to make the treatment processes and facilities “Smart”, thanks to pervasive sensors and Industrial IoT solutions, in order to create the database for development and planning new and more efficient workflows. New management system will be created with this database, that will create a strong integration between the ‘physical’ world of operations and all the business, technical and administrative processes.
