Seligo launches digital transaction and services platform for waste professionals
In Europe, only 41% of waste was optimised in 2015, and while landfill use may be in decline, there are still obstacles preventing a better approach to waste treatment and recycling. Versailles, France-based Seligo aims to remove these barriers and improve the proportion of optimised waste by serving as a link between supply and demand, with its new digital transaction and services platform for waste professionals.
Using this online platform, waste professionals can advertise their products or treatment capacity, and make reservations to dispose of and/or treat waste.
Accessible on mobile, tablet and desktop, the platform is principally aimed at:
* All types of registered and licenced waste collectors
* Waste treatment companies
* Waste transporters
Rather than relying on ill-adapted long-term contracts, those requiring waste or recycling services can do so quickly and efficiently. With the tools to find treatment centres and their services at the tap of the thumb, it is hoped that illegal fly-tipping will become a less attractive option to offenders.
If you need to dispose of waste, the platform can locate the 20 closest sites to you with the necessary treatment capacities and provide the price of the service. You can then choose the best option according to their own criteria: product, quantity, price etc. and book treatment or services online and the treatment capacity holders book waste tonnage. Their profile is approved in advance so that the transaction can be completed immediately.
Waste is taken to the treatment centre and checked, before being invoiced securely via the platform at the agreed price. Payment is made for each delivery. Payment is guaranteed and secure through the Seligo platform.
For treatment centres, Seligo optimises the sale of marginal capacities and facilitates the supply of recyclable waste, at the best market conditions. Treatment centres can function more efficiently and be greener.
On launching in the UK, Seligo founder, Thomas Paris says: "Having worked for many years in the waste industry, I know that a more streamlined relationship between waste collectors and waste treatment centres can exist. That's why we created Seligo which matches waste collectors to sites with capacity, however marginal.
"We've eliminated the need for costly and time-consuming validation procedures. Seligo improves economic margins and reduces environmental impact for both parties in the waste cycle. It's better for business, and better for the environment"
Seligo is launching in the UK at the RWM exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham, from 12th -14th September, stand 4J14.
