Revenue from waste
The FundWaste sensor fits in or over a bin and uses machine learning and AI to detect contamination and alert users before it impacts the value of contents, ie: food in with cardboard.
A camera and sensors alert users to the need for a collection, avoiding costly pickups and offering recyclers higher value waste streams. The data enables businesses, schools and organisations to reduce costs and generate revenue from waste.
"As designers and engineers, we’re strategically placed to have a significant impact on the challenge of designing plastic products for recycling by making smarter decisions about the materials we specify for the products we design."
Mark Hester, Technology Director and Co-founder of The Imagination Factory.
