Waste and environment management firm Averda has stressed the role technology in enabling climate reliance waste management services.
Averda said it uses smart tracking systems to map the city through GPRS on company vehicles and sensors on the bins, which allows it to choose the optimum route allowing it to reduce fuel and emissions in its Euro 5 compliant fleet.
Using big data collected from thousands of kilometers of transporting, Averda said it could work with urban planners to identify improvements to infrastructure or safeguarding systems against increasingly diverse climate change.
The firm revealed this information at the third “Africa Climate Resilient Infrastructure Summit (ACRIS 3)” held in Marrakech.
ACRIS 3 convened a set of high-level expert panels to showcase priority areas of private sector investment for climate resilient infrastructure in Africa - a fundamental building block for Africa to meet its sustainable development goals.
