Has it been a year already?

GreenQ bday

GreenQ is celebrating its first birthday, a good chance to review where we started and where are we today.

The Vision and the garbage:  Internet of Garbage

Many of you readers know this feeling. Out of the blue, you experience a creative moment; a light bulb appears over your head with a clear vision of a solution to a well-known problem, one that has yet to be solved. You’re thinking, ‘hey, this could be a START-UP!’

GreenQ’s story kind of fits that classic format. Four friends were meeting in a crossroad, understanding that we could all be living in better, smarter place. 

It wasn’t until May 2015 that the founders realized that the waste collection process is a massive, underserved process that turns billions of dollars to air pollution.

Smart waste collection  

A major part of the municipality budget is allocated for waste pickup and disposal. For instance, the annual expenditure of waste pickup and disposal in the US amounts to 200$B, more than 60$B of it is used for collection, the whole process is un-monitored.  As of today, the Waste Collection provider has zero visibility on real time process cycle or the ability to analyze and optimize this primary resource consuming procedure. These issues can be solved, once you have a comprehensive data flow of the process. We call that flow-IoG. Internet of Garbage.

The Future

The future looks bright, while smart cities are becoming more and more realistic and optimization is a leading factor in any business approach, our smart waste collection technology is more relevant than ever, especially for smart city waste management.

At the moment we are expanding our team, perfecting our algorithmic and seeking for the best partnerships to enlarge our activity overseas
