Smart waste management is a collective term for management of solid wastes from residential and commercial societies, streets, public places, hospitals and other institutions. The advent of innovative devices such as RFID, disposable tags, containers and vacuum cleaners with real-time measurement of wastes has developed a significant market for solid waste management. If the wastes are not treated with proper equipment, they can cause severe environmental hazards resulting into depletion of oxygen and rise of toxic elements in atmosphere. Thus the need for sustainable environment and clean surrounding delivers waste management as an emerging field.
There are several economic benefits of smart waste management which are anticipated to drive the market. With a growing concern towards environment and strict environmental regulations by government, industries, IT corporate and others are opting for several smart waste management process. The process includes collection of waste, processing and re-processing, recycling and ultimately resulting into efficient disposal. In the current market scenario, mechanical and biological treatments are being followed in smart waste management. With the growth in R&D too, extracting energy from various types of wastes shall be the sole objective behind sustainable environment.
