Register on the information and innovation platform of recycling technologies SmartOdpady (now available only in Slovak)
The integrated platform SmartOdpady has undergone almost a decade of development and is intended to help the entities in the waste management chain to start sharing data efficiently and not just exchange information with each other as before. The platform provides waste holders and processors with basic functionality for finding partners and technologies for waste recovery, communicating free capacities or establishing contact with research centers or technology suppliers.
At present, in the Slovak Republic, there is no systematic attention drawn to the development of economically efficient recycling processes. Also, the yield of sources of strategic raw materials in the available waste material streams is not statistically evaluated. In order to ensure a balance between collection methods and treatment technologies in terms of environmental sustainability, cost-effectiveness and social acceptability, decisions on the waste management must be based on the different waste streams, collection methods, and transport and treatment. Implementation of policies for transition to the so-called a green and circular economy with the economical use of natural resources means that the waste management is becoming a part of the wider resource management system, and that waste is a significant potential and global source of strategic raw materials and energy.
The basic goal of the proposed information and innovation platform of recycling technologies “SmartOdpady” is to provide the quantitative and qualitative information about technologies and their capacities operating in the waste management system in their location. The information at the platform should simplify the informed decision-making in waste management and provide the relevant data for critical areas in the waste treatment, planning the development and innovation activities in waste management, or creating the new business opportunities, especially, at the level of small and medium-sized enterprises in cooperation with the universities in the field of research and development of new innovative technologies. A monitoring system built as a virtual space will contribute to ensuring that the actors in the waste management chain will effectively share their data and not just exchange information with each other.
The platform SmartOdpady at www.odpady-az.sk is designed to provide a complete list of waste transporters, processors, technologies and collection points in one place. Registration is really simple, you are just a step away from gaining new customers. Registration at http://www.odpady-az.sk/register
