Bin-e, invented by a Polish company for public spaces (think your local food court), uses artificial intelligence-based object recognition to automatically sort recyclables (glass, paper, plastic and metal) into separate compartments. After sorting, the machine compresses the paper/plastic waste, monitors how full each compartment is and sends an alert when a pick-up is needed so you are not wasting time, money & fuel on partial pick-ups.https://www.bine.world
Constructing offshore winds farms is a complicated business, especially when all your equipment and supplies have to travel through a single, near-by Port.The Port of Esbjerg, in Denmark is a port which already specialises in port services for the offshore wind industry. They have specialised facilities and flexible areas for transporting, pre-assembling, shipping out and servicing large offshore wind turbines. But even a highly specialised Port can potentially manage their facilities better. A digital twin is helping the Port understand changes they can make which could triple their throughput within the next two years. Impressive!https://renews.biz/83139/digital-twin-could-help-port-esbjerg-triple-capacity/
