Underground waste transportation system for residual waste, paper and food waste

The high-tech waste sorting and transportation system in Hammarby Sjöstad eco-city in Sweden reduces the need for waste trucks to enter the city while increasing the efficiency of waste separating. An innovative vacuum suction system transports waste fractions to the city perimeter via a series of underground tunnels. 

Returpack ‘Reverse Vending Machine’ incentivises aluminium and plastic recycling
Returpack ‘Reverse Vending Machine’ incentivises aluminium and plastic recycling

To simplify and incentivise aluminium and plastics recycling in Hungary, recycling company Returpack devised a ‘Reverse Vending Machine’. The standalone machine, which is placed in public places, offers incentive vouchers to citizens in return for their cans and bottles. 

SEPARATE: Quality products from waste through efficient waste separation

The SEPARATE Waste System integrates innovative technologies that enable the highly efficient separation of waste, overcoming a significant barrier to increasing bio-waste recycling. Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), separately collected bio-waste and mono-streams can all be efficiently separated into a non-organic rest fraction and a very clean organic fraction, from which a number of high-quality products can be obtained.

Plastic waste reduction scheme for sustainable tourism in Cyprus

A sustainability charity teamed up with a tourism company to help reduce plastic waste in the Cyprus by setting up a sustainable strategy in hotels. Changes such as no longer giving out bottled water, or straws, resulted in a large reduction in the amount of plastic waste generated, in addition to positive impacts on both costs and guest satisfaction. 

Production value chain optimisation for Valmora mineral water

One of the main challenges for Valmora, a mineral water company, was to convert its production chain in order to obtain a more green and eco-friendly process. Through an integrated three-step process, the Italian company was able to makes changes to considerably reduce its waste production and carbon footprint

Life cycle-thinking and eco-design: reducing packaging waste and carbon footprint

Supported through the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) innovation voucher scheme, C-Tech Innovation worked with Halen Môn to redesign their product packaging, using an approach informed by life-cycle thinking. This method helped identify a solution that reduced not only material use and carbon footprint but also realised significant cost savings. 

Bulky Bob’s: a better way to manage bulky waste

By contracting Bulky Bob’s, a social enterprise, municipalities in the United Kingdom have drastically reduced the amount of household waste going to landfill. Bulky Bob’s provides a dedicated collection service for large items, such as furniture and white goods, after which it finds the best solution to either reuse or recycle these items. As a result up to 65% of this waste is diverted from landfill.

EcoFan Air Filter, Taiwan
EcoFan Air Filter, Taiwan

For past few years, air pollutant has been a big challenge for urban cities due to its direct effect on both human health and the environment. A novel device called EcoFan Air Filter is proposed to help diminish such a deadly crisis.

Waste water management in TSMC, Taiwan
Waste water management in TSMC, Taiwan

Making good use of water resource is of paramount importance for any industry. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), the world leading wafer foundry, began to work on waste water recycling in 1995, and has developed a brand new waste water recycling system.  The rate of recycled waste water can now reach nearly 90%, which is an unmatched level. 

Smart delivery of cost efficient hydrogen - SPERA
Smart delivery of cost efficient hydrogen - SPERA

Chiyoda Corporation, an engineering company in Japan, proposed the global hydrogen supply chain concept by liquid organic hydrogen carrier with Toluene /Methylcyclohexane system. In this method, hydrogen is fixed to toluene with the hydrogenation reaction and converted into SPERA Hydrogen, which can be transported by chemical tanker at the normal atmospheric temperature.
