Waste management is a very important industrial process, and smart waste management can be a profitable asset for both waste producers and waste management companies. The COMPOSITION ecosystem provides a complete solution that contains smart IoT fill-level sensors, data analytics tools, automated mechanisms for matching requesters and suppliers, online negotiation and real-time evaluation of offers. The smart waste management use case developed in COMPOSITION was presented at the Industrial Data Spaces Association Winter Days event by partner CERTH-ITI.

The waste management service providers deploy smart sensors that enable continuous monitoring of bins located at their customers’ facilities. Supported by plenty of analytical tools and services, this facilitates better allocation of resources and optimised pick-up planning. From the waste producers’ perspective, this solution provides an automated way to negotiate their waste handling and maximise their profit by providing smart and dynamic mechanisms to find the most suitable service provider based on different criteria.
