Onderzoek van de Technische Universiteit Delft (TUDelft) toont aan dat 60% van al het afval in de Metropoolregio Amsterdam duurzamer verwerkt kan worden. De gemeente Amsterdam en Port of Amsterdam bieden in samenwerking met geoFluxus alle bedrijven in de regio toegang tot hun individuele Afvalprofiel met inzichten om betere alternatieven te vinden voor hun afvalstromen.
Every day large quantities of waste are generated in cities. A lot of this waste is exported to be incinerated. We can turn high-quality waste resources into value. Monitoring tool geoFluxus leads the way to a circular economy by mapping waste flows.
geoFluxus, a spin-off from the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment wins the 1st price at the EU DATATHON Green Deal Challenge. This competition invites teams from all over the world to create applications for European open datasets to solve one of the four main challenges the continent is facing. A necessary requirement for the competition was to use at least one dataset coming from a H2020 project.
More than nine million kilometers. That is the annual distance traveled to move Amsterdam waste from source to final destination, usually the waste processor. It is one of the insights from the monitor platform developed in Delft, which governments will soon be able to use to analyze and help eliminate their waste flows.
