Greenovo enjoy rapid netBin success in Hong Kong and China

Greenovo, FarSite’s netBin recently appointed reseller based in Hong Kong a company specialising in environmental technology solutions in the waste management sector has already won two major contracts for netBin.

A major Chinese waste handling company using modern collection methods with contracts in number of Chinese cities has chosen netBin to improve the efficiency of managing those contracts. The solution will be deployed in two cities. Initially to gain intelligence on waste filling patterns so that the optimum size bins can be deployed together with a reduced collection rate. At a later stage automatic routing will be introduced further refine and improve efficiency of the waste collection process. The API built into the netBin system will also be use to interface the company’s main management platform.

The second contract is for local government to monitor waste collection rates in waste collection houses. A novel technical approach was chosen where the nPod’s are fixed in the waste houses and the bins placed under them, this allows for chute blockage to also be detected. The project initially as a pilot aims to improve the efficiency of waste collection by using netBin’s fill rate monitoring of the bins to optimise collection schedules and raise alerts when chute blockage occurs. Use of netBin automatic bin routing is planned to be utilised at a later stage in the project.
