Environmental study of the pneumatic collection. Barcelona

Pneumatic waste collection boxes

Since there are few comparative studies  with respect to the results of the selective collection (both in terms of quantity and quality), energy balance and emissions due to the collection between this system and other more traditional, is a study of environmental assessment of the pneumatic system of waste collection, collecting different experience in the city and comparing them with other forms of collection.

The evaluation comprises the static collection systems and different variants, depending on the location and type of waste collection box (in the building or in public space).  Multi-zone Control are included to compare the results of the air with the rest of systems that live in Barcelona.

The study consists of the following analysis:

  • The quantity of waste collected
  • The composition of waste collected
  • The energy consumption and emissions of the collection system
  • The characteristics and use of pneumatic systems
      Incidents
      Duplication of systems for the collection and analysis of potential users
      Organic collection service
  • Relations of collection system with public space
      Accessibility
      Habitability
      Noise
