  4. 4. The value chain of waste – Envac in the context 4Hans Anebreid
  5. 5. Implementation 5Hans Anebreid • Challenging parts • New type of inlet, color reader and weighing system • New pipe material, includes joints, installation, and procurement • New control system • Solutions • Investment in R&D • Add time for sourcing, planning and coordination • Add time for commissioning and follow up 40-50 apartments, sorting of 4 fractions, occupies less than 1 m2.
  6. 6. Evaluation 6 • Measure 7.1 • Optical sorting of waste • Compare before and after. Amount of sorted waste. Ease of recycling. • Measure 7.2 • Automated Waste Collection • Environmental impact before and after. Driving distance in the area. • Measure 7.3 • Waste collection statistics • Introduce an incentive system to entice residents to improve recycling. E.g. web, mail and/or app. • Evaluation • Data base analysis. Weight and color • Questionairre/interviews with tenants • Evaluation • Measure driving distance • Calculate environmental impact • Adjust for project specific requirements • Evaluation • Develop incentive system • Feedback to users • Evaluate Hans Anebreid
