DIS - Data Integration System
The participation of the different agents in the sector's supply chain: farmers, agri-food companies, waste managers, technology centers and universities, have been key factors in developing an innovative ICT platform (DIS - Data Integration System), which will help all participating agents to improve their competitiveness by facilitating the digitalization of the circular processes in which multilayer and organic plastic waste is generated in the agri-food sector.
The Data Integration System is an online technological platform that solves industry challenges.
Using a Traceability Tool to identify materials, their origin, processes and quality, and a Decision Support Tool that predicts the characteristics of the agrofood residual streams. Moreover, it explores all the available alternatives for its valorisation and selects the most appropiate routes taking into account social, economic, environmental and regulatory criteria.
It is an online technology platform, which is tailored to all actors in the agri-food chain, to make the most of the enormous information and volume of data generated in these circular processes and to manage them as efficiently as possible
It allows the reception, management, consultation and printing of the traceability of waste in the agri-food sector
It offers a highly efficient and flexible system of traceability and data prediction for waste management in the agri-food sector, according to the specific specifications of each applicant, in terms of costs, traceability and sustainability.
It constitutes a technological and research benchmark for traceability users (companies, managers and transporters, recyclers, manufacturers and administration).
Facilitates proper waste management at the level of agricultural producers and agri-food companies to comply with regulatory requirements.
Improves the efficiency of the logistics chain for the collection of these wastes.
Predicts the characteristics of agri-food waste streams and explores all available alternatives to select the best recovery route for each waste
Easy access to provide public administrations with a more agile and efficient management of these waste management processes
Helps all agents in the supply chain to comply with the European Standard UNE 15343:2008 on traceability of plastic recycling and conformity assessment and recycled content
Public administrations: Easier access to data on agri-food waste management for more efficient management of the processes it supervises.
Control authorities: cost reduction in auditing and control processes, as well as a more precise knowledge of the content of recycled materials and traceability.
Producers-Managers-Valuers: Real-time information on waste management and acceptance. Information that will allow them to optimise logistics and provide services more efficiently.
Industrial sector: application of the products resulting from the recycled material for the development of new products. Access to a huge source of data on raw materials that will allow them to optimise their supply processes and streamline the management of their operations.
