Ecoembes Helps Reduce Plastic Waste Through Smart Technology
Ecoembes is a Spanish non-profit environmental organization that coordinates the recycling of household packaging throughout Spain. It also drives an initiative to incentivize those who recycle their beverage cans and plastic bottles.
To ensure accuracy of its rewards program, Ecoembes needed a reliable and durable solution to correctly identify the person who is recycling, the product they are recycling and how often they recycle. The organization also needed a way to guarantee the traceability of the waste deposited.
Benefits / Outcomes
- Early information shows an increase in the frequency of how often people use the recycling containers
- Customer incentives can be applied to other sustainability projects
- Solution has proven reliable to withstand movement and knocks and various types of weather conditions
