Digitalization opens up new opportunities
- The results of the project open up new opportunities to develop the collection from the eco-houses when the municipalities from the coming year also become responsible for recycling materials from all households. "Bintel's technology gives us new tools to continue our journey up the waste ladder by working with our customers to increase recycling and reduce combustible residual waste," summarizes Florim Albborn, CEO of SSAM.
SSAM, Södra Smålands Avfall och Miljö, is a waste managment company at the digital forefront and a company with high goals to reduce its environmental footprint. In one of their studies, as in several other places, it has been identified that many waste containers today are far from full when emptied and that there is great potential for efficiency and environmental savings.
"The biggest challenge is to set up a system architecture that, based on analysis of sensor data, automatically generates customized driving schedules, which I feel the selected company can help us with" says Per Gunnarsson, IT and digitalization manager at SSAM.
In this type of medium-sized project, the challenge lies in understanding how to integrate a new solution into the existing IT structure. An integration that affects large parts of the business, whilst ensuring the quality of operation. To create a secure transition to data-driven operations, you need to have a broad understanding of how customers' organizations look and function, and how the data operation should be implemented safely. We at Bintel are getting started on this. In reality.
There is a big difference between making a pilot, which is operated outside the existing IT structure, and an installation that should be integrated into the system. When the installation is to be the basis for large rollout and scalability, then there are no shortcuts. It requires routine and structure.
The project started with a technical dialogue that resulted in 64 technical customer requirements and a number of different SLA. Bintel's work on integration connects important data points, in order to get logistics and collection as efficient as possible. At the same time, the collection must be able to run without additional complexity, in existing infrastructure.
EDP and SSAM have an established structure around services in all Recycling room, and Bintel's Plug-n-play integration uses the existing structure (e.g. service ID, retain ID) to pass the daily trip to EDP and on to EDP Mobile and on to PreZero.
A complex system that will work 24/7, from today all the way to your goals in 2030. This project describes how the first steps to a data-driven business development will be taken by many of our partners. A journey lined with new insights into how the business can become more efficient and reduce its carbon footprint.
There are many stakeholders involved in the project and the fact that everyone has had access to the same data has been a unifying factor. The common goal for all involved is to increase sorting and the speed of the circular transition and thus reduce the amount of waste that is incinerated.
- There has been a lot of learning in the project and we have been able to see that it works on a large scale through automation with the help of AI. This bodes well for the future," says Per Gunnarsson, IT and digitalization manager at SSAM.
