PWC Master Class at the UPC: UNIVERSITAT POLITECNICA DE CATALUNYA

Fulfilling the commitments that IPWCA assumed for 2017, we are collaborating with prestigious universities around the world. Last week we were honored to teach a Master Class about Pneumatic Waste Collection at the MASTER: SMART CITIES: URBANISM, TECHNOLOGY AND SUSTAINABILITY imparted by the UNIVERSITAT POLITECNICA DE CATALUNYA - UPC. After a theoretical block, we did a workshop designing the PWC system and quantifying the environmental & resilience benefits for an area of Boston. Great bunch of "Smart" participants and Thanks to Blanca Arellano, the Master’s Director. About the Master… A new urban paradigm has emerged over the last decade: THE SMART CITY.

PWC 2.0 is RESILIENT!

PWC has been proved in many cases, like in Tokio or New York, as a reliable technology to make cities more resilient. 100RC members can contac 100RC and ask an assesment provided by IPWCA on how Pneumatic Waste Collection can improve its Urban resilience. More about 100RC... 100RC supports the adoption and incorporation of a view of resilience that includes not just the shocks—earthquakes, fires, floods, etc.—but also the stresses that weaken the fabric of a city on a d
