Waste project calls on IEA skills

THE IEA is developing key aspects of software architecture and database design for an innovative start-up developing a waste management trading platform. Recycle2Trade, a London-based SME, is leading a pan-European initiative to build a platform which allows waste producers and users of waste products to come together to improve recycling rates and reduce illegal fly tipping and the burning of waste. The Open Waste Compliance Project aims to create a Pan-European waste management licences register to ensure a quick licence validity assessment of registered waste carriers and authorised sites across the EU, by various interested parties in the waste management sectors, from national authorities to waste producers. The project will produce a prototype web-enabled service to make all relevant information available in an easy to use manner. The IEA’s data scientists and software developers are leading on the database design, raw data parsers and API deployment as well as contributing to the visualisation aspects to maximise the user experience. The Portuguese Environment Agency is one of the first partners to share it’s data as part of the project, which will run until 2019.
