Who are we?
WasteHero is a Danish technology-driven company focused upon optimizing waste management across the world. We believe the future of handling waste should be managed in a sustainable way, which benefits both organizations and cities
WasteHero vil kontinuerligt arbejde mod at optimere affaldshåndteringen globalt. Vi ser affald som en værdifuld ressource, ikke kun for organisationer og byer, men også for miljøet
Vores mission er at digitalisere affaldshåndtering og derved eliminere ineffektive og unødvendige afhentninger af skraldespande, hvilket skaber store besparelser og reducerer CO₂-udslippet.
The beginning of WasteHero started inside of the classroom at an engineering class in Aarhus University, when the CEO and co-founder Hussam Mansour noticed that the bins at the university park were emptied half-empty very often.
That was the start of WasteHero, where Hussam decided to build an IoT-based dynamic waste collection system to optimize the current methods of waste collection in the municipality of Herning. The goal was simple - eliminate as many of the unnecessary pickups as possible, while saving cost and decreasing pollution.
The project was so successful showing 71% annual savings of the total collection cost in the glass containers which lead to scaling up to all 412 bins. After he finished his thesis, WasteHero was funded by the highly sought Danish incubator program InnoFounder for a full year.
Hussam Mansour later joined forces with current CTO and co-founder Khaled Saied, determined to bring sustainable waste collection to every corner of the world. Like Hussam Mansour, Khaled Saied has a passion for environmental and technology-driven business models, and a strong engineering background within IoT and machine learning to back it up.
WasteHero has headquarters in the municipality of Aarhus and proudly employs 15 waste heroes from more than 8 nationalities!
It has never been more important to be aware of the impact our actions has on the environment. There is genuine commitment around the leading executives to join forces against the increasing pollution of the globe and WasteHero is equally committed.
FN estimates that by by 2050, two third of the world population will live in urban areas, and this rapid development creates a series of acute challenges for modern cities. WasteHero will take part in solving these problems by focusing on UN's sustainable development goal #11 regarding sustainable collection and generation of waste in city areas. By being experts on analyzing waste streams and deploying smart waste solutions, we created a service that is good for the environment and creates savings.
Vores avancerede teknologi optimerer og fjerner unødvendige processer, hvilket resulterer i at organisationer og byer kan spare op til 50 procent på deres eksisterende affaldshåndtering. Dette kommer sig af vores førende produkter, der er udviklet i samarbejde med vores kunder og førende eksperter indenfor Internet of Things, Kunstig Intelligens, machine learning og big data.
Teknologier har kræften til at ændre dynamikken i større industrier. Vi sigter efter at promovere bæredygtighed igennem teknologi, og rådgiver både virksomheder og kommununer til at tage imod de muligheder givet af smart waste management. Teknologier tillader hidtil uforudsete løsninger, men giver også både evnen og værktøjerne til at optimere eksisterende løsninger for affaldshåndtering.
