Waste generation and environment
On the global stage, the environment remains one of the most important topics of discussion because of the threat to which it is exposed. The environmental impact of waste is significant, with massive volumes of waste generated annualy with only basic or little treatment to minimise its impact. People are increasingly concerned about the production of waste and its effect, and are seeking ways to deal with the problem. They are also asking governments to take steps to minimise the environmental impact of waste.
Waste potentially reperesents an enormous loss of resources in the form of both materials and energy. In addition, the management and disposal of waste can have serious environmental impacts. Landfill, for example, takes up land space and may cause air, water and soil poluttion, while incineration may result in emissions of air pollutants. EU waste managemnet policies aim to reduce the environmental and health impacts of waste to improve the EU’s resource efficiency.The long-term aim of these policies is to reduce the amount of waste generated and when waste generation is unavoidable, to promote it as a resource and achieve higer level of recycling and the safe disposal of waste.
Everyone benefits from WaCo
People are the focal point of waste management, that is why there can be no success without the integration of people in the current technology of waste disposal and management.
And that is why WaCo blockchain-based solution for waste management is mainly focused on households. Humans are included in the value chain and are rewarded for properly disposing of waste, recycling, and reuseing. WaCo allows the efficient conversion of waste products in an efficient and eco-friendly manner. Some outputs that can be obtained from recycling or processing waste are paper, glass plastic, electricity, and timber. WaCo uses various top-class technologies that make waste management system productive and efficient, thereby enhancing the method of exchanging data to be players in the ecosystem for analysis. The data obtained can be used to provide suggestions, solution methods and optimization.
