Bioenergy consult, a consultancy firm active in biomass energy, waste-to-energy and waste management segments, is emphasizing pneumatic waste collection as a new trend in waste collection.
This is what they say:
"Automated vacuum waste collection systems that are located underground are also actively used in various parts of the world like Abu Dhabi, Barcelona,, Mecca and New York etc.
The utilization of the subsurface space can provide the setting for the development of infrastructure which is capable of addressing in a more efficient manner the limitations of existing waste management schemes.
This technique also minimizes operational costs, noise and provides more flexibility."
