On the 23th of September, EWAS was presented in the Waste Prevention Workshop which was held in Athens, Greece in the context of the LIFE Project «Development and Demonstration of a Waste Prevention Support Tool for Local Authorities – WASP Tool».
Ms Aida Anthouli introduced to the audience the Life EWAS project which aims to demonstrate the potential of advances in information technology to optimise waste management methods. The project actions will extend the uptake of innovative waste collection methodologies using low-invasive technologies based on software and hardware data collection and analysis technologies. The project expects to reduce the costs of waste management activities by 15-30% and their greenhouse gas emissions by more than 10%.
