Taoglas launches waste insight solutions in North America

The company says the service will enable cities and businesses to transition to a more sustainable world.

January 6, 2022

Taoglas, an advanced technology provider based in Dublin, has launched its Taoglas Waste Insights solution for the North American market. The company says Taoglas Waste Insights’ offerings enable cities and enterprises to gather actionable insights and successful outcomes toward a more cost-effective and sustainable operation.

According to a news release from Taoglas, the service provides real-time data analytics to optimize waste monitoring and collection processes, which can provide savings in waste collection costs and reductions in CO2 emissions.

The company says the service combines a range of smart container sensors with a waste management platform and in-vehicle navigation to alert waste haulers when their containers are full. In addition, it provides waste collectors with access to a pickup route feature and predictive collection modeling, which allows waste collectors to maximize their resources and minimize costs.

“We are delighted to be launching Taoglas Waste Insights in North America,” says Ronan Quinlan, CEO and co-founder of Taoglas. "With this platform, a city or enterprise can manage not just some but all its waste assets together, getting a clear picture on where resources should be spent and what is working and what is not.” 

Taoglas is also establishing a Smart Waste Centre of Excellence in North America to meet the growing demand for greater efficiencies in waste management. It is estimated about 22 percent of the cities in the United States and Canada have already implemented strategic programs, compared with 7 percent of cities worldwide. The Centre of Excellence will focus on research and development towards an expanded portfolio of products and solutions in the waste management sector.

“We are focused on changing the way waste management is done forever,” says Leon Hayes, general manager and senior vice president of Taoglas Advanced Technologies Business Unit. “The operational and infrastructure cost savings provided by our solution, as well as the environmental impact in emissions, noise pollution and fuel savings are significant.”
