In an era where environmental concerns are at the forefront, waste management has become a pressing issue for industries worldwide. Companies like Byers Scientific and Envirosuite are leading the charge in revolutionizing waste management using digital tools and transforming the industry towards more efficient, sustainable, and environmentally friendly practices.

Andres Quijano, solution design engineer at Envirosuite, and Josh Rembusch, vice president of business development at Byers Scientific, held a leadership intensive session at WASTECON 2023 last week. The two experts stressed the importance of implementing digital tools in waste management and how those tools make operators' lives much more manageable through efficient data, automation, and better customer communication.

“When you have a digital transformation strategy, looking at the statistics, 85% of businesses that have a digital-first strategy are more likely to achieve their goals,” said Quijano.

Offering a digital-first strategy to customers has allowed companies like Byers Scientific and Envirosuite to optimize processes, help landfills minimize environmental impact, and connect communities to operators for quick solutions. The partnership between the two companies has created a one-stop-shop of sorts, assisting organizations to monitor emissions while providing landfill data and embracing sustainability.

Quijano offered a quick demonstration that showed us the process of a landfill receiving a new odor complaint and how Envirosuite’s digital interface can detect the issue. For this simulation, Quijano relayed information to the customer showing them a change in wind direction was the culprit for an unusual odor blanketing their home and that it wasn’t a common occurrence. This kind of communication is vital. Envirosuite’s platform can offer real-time monitoring and data analysis, allowing organizations to track variables such as air quality, noise levels, and weather conditions. Having this information so easily available helps keep customers and the customers’ customers happy.

For more sustainability measures, Byers Scientific’s digital tool, SmartTrack, can identify opportunities to reduce waste generation and minimize the environmental impact of waste disposal. This readily available information helps organizations make informed decisions that line up with their sustainability goals. SmartTrack also offers predictive analytics, helping companies optimize waste collection schedules and minimize costs.

For the waste industry, digital tools are going to work their way into all organizations sooner rather than later. And judging by the sheer amount of stage presence and popularity that AI had at this year’s WASTECON, those types of tools will have a considerable impact on all of us. These are the types of revolutionary tools that are going to positively impact all aspects of the waste industry and truly change waste management as we know it.
