The space that is saved from the reduced need for waste collection rooms can instead be used to create added value and increase revenue for the real estate owner by using the saved space for business offices, stores, or similar.

Customer Added Value

  1. Operational cost savings
    The systems offer long-term cost savings and favourable payback periods due to more efficient waste collection and the reduced use of electricity and vehicle fuel costs.
  2. Resilient system & enhancing the property value
    Our waste collection system has been reliable for over 50 years, even in harsh weather conditions. It takes up less space than traditional methods, freeing up land for development to increase property value.
  3. Potential for more green space
    The saved outdoor space can be used to create more green areas that can improve the quality of life for residents.

– Kent Norlenius, Chief Technology Officer

Our journey towards digital transformation has achieved significant milestones. We have improved the data collection of our automated systems and prepared the technology that completes future data collection needs. We have completed a pilot project that focused on optimising energy usage by implementing solar panels and batteries. The green energy complements Envac’s Automation Platform (EAP) and optimises the power utilisation of system operation during peak hours.

I am pleased to reveal that we have made remarkable progress in reducing energy consumption, positively impacting the environment, and improving the quality of life. Our projects showcase the immense potential of the synergy between our teams, client and the technology we are implementing. We are launching ReFlow app that will be a game-changer for our customers, end-users and the environment. I commend everyone for their hard work, dedication, and collaboration in achieving these milestones.

Envac Automated Platform (EAP) is the foundation of our digital transformation that enables machine learning and AI

  • smart technology that supports efficient operation & maintenance
  • increase system availability
  • improves energy efficiency

I always breathe a sigh of relief whenever we leave or come back to our home, knowing that I won't have to deal with any unpleasant waste odours. Yantai Hammarby Eco City is the ideal solution for us to reside in a more eco-conscious community that contributes to improving China's ecological problems.

Case Studies

…one city, one world, one planet at a time


The King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD) is a 1.6 million square meter mixed-use neighbourhood with a strong sustainability profile that is being developed in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

  • Four separate Envac systems with a total of 160 waste inlets, 16 public litter bins and 21 km of piping will collect an estimated 140 tonnes of waste in two fractions – general and recyclable.
  • The system will be equipped with Envac’s Automation Platform (EAP), which is proven to reduce energy consumption by up to 50%.
  • The project is aiming to become the largest Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum certified neighbourhood in the world.


An ecological smart city built on an area of 880,000 square meters based on the global eco-city model of the Hammarby lake city project in Stockholm.

  • The Envac system has 64 inlets and 2.5 km of piping that collects waste from over 5,000 apartments.
  • It is estimated to reduce waste collection traffic and the related emissions by 90% and has contributed towards the sustainability aspirations of the residential neighbourhood to promote healthy and green lifestyles.
  • With 46% of green space in the residential area, there are watersaving devices such as humidity and raindrop sensors in use for landscaping.


The Envac system in Maroochydore, the Sunshine Coast, 100 km north of Brisbane, is the first automated waste collection system in the country.

  • Downtown Maroochydore has been redeveloped and designed for pedestrians, cyclists and public transport, which means that a conventional waste collection system with trucks were not a viable solution.
  • The Envac system avoids the need for heavy trucks in the city centre to promote road safety, and reduce traffic emissions and noise.
  • Public litter bins, for general waste and recyclables, are cleared every day without rubbish trucks. The system is hermetically closed, which eliminates odour and vermin.

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, USA

Consistently ranked among the top children’s hospitals by U.S. News & World Report, the hospital provides access to 2,000 pediatric physicians and allied health practitioners across more than 60 pediatric programs.

  • Containment and quick removal of waste improve the hospital’s aesthetic providing a comfortable and clean healthcare environment.
  • Waste in an enclosed system vs. hallways and elevators significantly reduces the risk of hospital-acquired infection.
  • Reduced staff movement in busy hallways and elevators.
  • Readily available load stations will significantly increase the recyclables capture rate.
