- Manager / Dealer
In partnership with Envac, the world leader in automated collection systems, Veolia has the development of this solution.
Automated pneumatic collection of channeling household waste, underground path from fixed collection points to a compaction unit. A truck then transports the compacted waste to their treatment process.
This collection has several advantages:
- suppression of noise, visual and olfactory nuisance related to storage, handling and collection bins;
- Reducing emissions to the movement of dump trucks;
- availability of terminals round the clock, 7 days 7.
Veolia won the design, construction and operation of the first pneumatic collection contract waste of the City of Paris in the future Clichy-Batignolles district. The 4.1 km underground pipeline system serves 2 600 homes since October 15, 2011.

- Waste management
With the installation of sensors in strategic disposal of individual waste items, data can be collected, stored and processed continuously in the system terminal. Adaptive algorithms ensure the system self-learns by time and the sequence of entries emptied every specific time.
With detailed information about the volume of waste, density, number of waste streams, and so on, EAP allows for system optimization. It also optimizes the frequency with which the container is to be extracted from the waste collection station.
More and more features are constantly integrated into the software to ensure balanced operation that optimizes automation, reduces operational power consumption and minimizes the required amount of maintenance. This in turn drives operational energy savings up to 50% and significantly reduced operational costs.
