Solution for measuring and accounting biowaste

Library of Challenges

Short description: Due to upcoming changes in legislation, a company is looking for a solution for measuring and accounting biowaste in large kitchens and restaurants. The solution needs to be able to account for all the stages and locations in the process (beyond what a person produces during lunch).

Market potential: The legislation is based on EU directives. Therefore, there is a great demand for more accurate measuring of biowaste for many organisations. Solution could be modified to suit small restaurants.

Timing: The need is urgent. The new legislation enters into effect in July. The company will be using compensatory systems until a solution is found.

Desired result: A solution that measures and accounts for the amounts of biowaste produced in large kitchens. The solution must be applicable to different locations in several cities that all work with different waste disposal companies. Solution needs to take into account waste produced across the whole process.

Information on challenge owner: Mid-Cap (250-3,000 staff).

Market presence of challenge owner: Active in one country.
