Dublin Airport Increases Waste Collection Efficiency by 90% with IoT Sensors

SEOUL, South Korea, Jan. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- DAA Group, the airport management authority for Dublin and Cork airports in Ireland, has introduced Ecube Labs' waste collection optimization solution at Dublin Airport. Installed in cooperation with ESE World, Europe's leading manufacturer of temporary storage systems for waste and recyclables, the technology has enabled the airport to achieve significant cost savings from increased waste collection efficiency already within three months of installation.

Before installing the solution which consists of wireless ultrasonic fill-level sensors and a cloud-based monitoring and analytics platform, Dublin Airport had to collect each waste container up to four times a day, costing a substantial amount of time and money. To solve the problem, the airport purchased 300 Clean CAP fill-level sensors to monitor the generation of waste and recyclables in all passenger bins across Dublin Airport's two terminals. By utilizing the software platform's intelligent algorithms, the facility managers are able to optimize the waste collection schedules based on the combination of real-time data and fill-level forecasting.

Hannah Forbes, Contract Services Specialist at Dublin Airport stated, "After deploying the solution, we have been able to go from collecting 840 containers 4 times a day to collecting just 80 containers a day. This has increased our operational efficiency upwards of 90% and resulted in significant cost savings. The solution has also provided us with data which has allowed us to recognise peak times in areas and from that adjust the allocation of staffing in those areas as well as increase waste container capacity where needed."

Besides increasing operational waste collection efficiency, the solution has enabled the facilities team to reallocate their time into maintaining the public washrooms and passenger areas across the airport. The sensors have also allowed the facility managers to analyze the type of waste produced in each area, making it possible to keep a close eye on recycling rates. Thanks to the positive results, the airport authorities are now considering extending the installation to all staff areas.

Roger Kim, COO at Ecube Labs stated, "With the outstanding results at Dublin Airport, DAA Group has demonstrated that Ecube Labs' IoT technology and analytics can help facility management operations to reach new heights of efficiency. Ecube Labs' trifecta of sensor technology, predictive algorithms, and optimization models not only effectively reduce the operational costs of waste collection, it enables data-driven allocations of valuable resources such as staff. We are delighted to be at the heart of the smart city revolution in Dublin."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
