With the spotlight now on hygiene, I talk to Andrea Basilova, co-founder of Slovakian firm Sensoneo, about how smart waste management fits into the new normal.
In a recent podcast, I heard the amazing story of Sensoneo’s journey. Could you tell us how you came up with the idea?
We came to the idea by chance. Namely, in our pub. During a discussion with a friend of ours, we heard about a problem in Nitra – one of the pioneering cities installing new semi-underground disposal containers in Slovakia. The city was not able to monitor when these containers were filled and very often special garbage trucks with hydraulic hands were being sent there when the containers were half empty. Thus, lots of money was being thrown into the air. The city was looking for a solution all over Europe.
