The Swedish company Envac is developing one of the largest automated waste collection systems for over 10,000 households in the new Barking Riverside district in east London. Envac believes that this system will reduce the need for containers by as much as 98 percent, and reduce traffic and carbon dioxide emissions.
Around 460 waste consoles will be installed in the east part of London, which will replace as many as 19,000 containers needed for waste collection in the traditional way.
Two types of waste will be collected through consoles – non-recyclable waste and mixed recyclable waste
Residents of Barking Riverside will, after separating the household waste, simply insert the waste through the openings of the consoles, which will be placed near the residential buildings. When the inlet openings under the consoles are filled, ie according to a pre-programmed discharge time, the fans at the waste collection points will create negative pressure and suck the waste at a speed of over 60 km / h through an underground network of 15 km long pipes.
Each cycle of automated waste collection for this part of London, which covers an area of 178 hectares, will last only a few minutes and will replace the work of several teams of utility workers and waste collection vehicles that would take almost all day to remove waste with harmful impact on life. the middle.
Reduction of traffic and carbon dioxide emissions
The integration of Envac’s automated waste collection system and a high level of environmental protection are key features of London’s Barking Riverside. Not only efficient and sustainable waste collection has been ensured, but also the removal of municipal waste collection vehicles has reduced traffic and, most importantly, carbon dioxide emissions.
