Waste4Think will boost four pilot projects implemented in the village of Zamudio in Spain, the southerly Greek city of Halandri, the Portuguese municipality of Cascais and the Italian city of Seveso. Their participation in the project will actively advance the transformation of urban localities into smart cities ("Smart Cities") and contribute to laying down the foundations of the circular economy.
The 20 innovative solutions proposed by the project will cover the entire value chain through a holistic management and data processing methodology. These solutions include advanced ICT tools and a non-technological perspective that aims to positively influence waste management practices and recycling evaluation mechanisms.
The main objectives of Waste4Think consist of reducing waste generation by 8%; achieving a 20% improvement in the classification of urban waste in order to facilitate its reuse and recycling; reducing waste management costs by 10%; and lowering greenhouse gas emissions by this same margin (-10%).
