New system for the control of door-to-door waste collection

Distromel has designed a new system for the control of door-to-door waste collection. The new system has GPS location, RFID identification and mobile applications, and it can also be complemented with the systems that have achieved so many successes in the collection of surface and underground containers. Door to door collection has been a reality for 15 years in some Spanish municipalities. However, it is in the last five years when it has begun to gain importance because, according to the structure and design of certain municipalities, it is the most ideal, optimal and profitable collection. Talking about aspects of sustainability, since socially is already accepted, economically it is profitable and environmentally respectable with the environment. However, it is worth mentioning that each municipality has a singularity and therefore must choose between the different types of collection available in the market. Up to the present there was no Spanish technology company that had a complete and specific system for the control, management and optimization of waste collection door to door. Distromel with its latest developments in both software and hardware brings together all the products necessary to obtain exhaustive control of the dumping of citizens, the service performed by the company and the data obtained so that the competent public administration can consult and analyse. View of the siGEUS software in the door-to-door container management module The implementation of the door-to-door system has substantially improved the selective collection of waste because citizens have no choice when it comes to dumping the waste, but the service workers collect the waste checking that there are no improper products in the bags and/or cubes. Subsequently, these bags are poured into the truck and transported to the specific management plant. The correct separation at source allows a less expensive treatment of the waste and therefore an economic saving and a reduction of the environmental impact. In some cases, this implementation has meant an important improvement, going from 32% of selective separation to 80%, as is the case of the Pallars Sobirà region in the province of Lleida. Between the Valencian Community, the Basque Country and Catalonia are more than 100 municipalities that have already implemented the door to door. In addition some larger municipalities such as Vic and Girona are considering the possibility of including this type of collection in some of its neighbourhoods. These facts indicate that it is a reality and that…

Distromel will be presenting innovations TECMA 2016

Distromel will be presenting innovations TECMA 2016

Distromel will be presenting innovations in the new siGEUS software, the most powerful software for controlling, managing and optimising the waste collection, and in the TOUCH PANEL electronics installed into vehicles. These innovations and the latest implementations of Distromel in the national and international markets demonstrate that it continues being a benchmark in the sector of technologies for urban services. The trade fair will be held from 15 to 17 June at IFEMA (Madrid), which is a compulsory visit within the sector of urban services, one of the sectors where Distromel is. TECMA, within the Forum of Sustainable Environmental Solutions, FSMS, becomes one of the main platforms to show innovations in the field of equipment and management of cities. Among the innovative products that will be shown, siGEUS web version stands out with information in real time on the road conditions and viewing of traffic cameras provided by the DGT (Directorate General of Traffic) and information on the weather forecast provided by AEMET (State Meteorology Agency). With these contributions, Distromel intends to provide its customers with tools for daily decision making. siGEUS is a GIS software which is continuously developing. It started in 2014 and has been specifically developed for controlling and managing urban services (waste collection, road/street cleaning…). Based on an office environment and with the option to choose between siGEUS desktop or siGEUS web, it allows planning, controlling and obtaining indicators to be analysed for subsequent optimization. Besides, siGEUS launches the module for industrial and door-to-door collection at TECMA. In this way, we can easily manage the industrial or urban containers with the mobile application “Management of Urban Services” and the hand-held terminal HTL Lite. This allows the operator to select the route, check collections made to a citizen or have information on the number of containers to be delivered to customers. It is also important to know the new possibilities provided by the Touch Panel on-board computer in vehicles with weighing and identification systems, such as the possibility to guide the operator regarding the filling level of containers. It is important to note Distromel capacity to integrate with all type of platforms and devices. An example of this is its identification system (RFID) Full ISO, which is able to identify any tag installed in the containers. Having the full production process provides Distromel with the flexibility to meet modifications in the systems and integrations according to the customer requirements.…
