Project LIFE PAYT presented at the Order of the Engineer in Aveiro

The coordinator of the project LIFE PAYT, Professor Celia Dias Ferreira, presented the national stage of the selective collection and data about the separation at source during the Conference “Waste Management in Smart Cities”, organized by the Order of the Engineer at the Delegation in Aveiro, on the 6th of December.


The speaker presented some technological solutions for a “smarter” Waste Management that are
adjusted to the PAYT tariff model (Pay-as-you-Throw). The main challenges of these technologies are the monitoring of waste quantity (weight or volume) deposited in containers and the identification of who is generating the waste. The presentation has also highlighted the role of “gamification” as an enhancer of behavioral changes in citizens.
