    Superfy, a leader in sustainable smart resource management solutions, has on Wednesday announced a tailored disposable vape collection and recycling solution at the Resource & Waste Management Expo (RWM), held at NEC Birmingham.

    The Dublin-based business said the combined software and smart container solution will provide enhanced safety and operational efficiency in the collection of vapes.

    “We’re very pleased with the reaction we have been getting from customers on our sustainability-driven solutions. The disposable vape market is one of the areas we are focused on to enhance the safety, collection and recycling challenges for the sector,” Ronan Quinlan, chief executive, said.

    The Superfy cloud-based software platform, sensors and smart containers continuously monitor the fill level of vapes in the containers and any rise in temperature. This information is used to streamline collections and enhance safety using optimised routing and automatic SMS and email alerts respectively.

    The solution is tailored for disposable vapes, as well as other battery-based products – providing vape manufacturers with a tangible solution for recycling their product after consumer use. In addition, the Superfy platform provides real-time sustainability data on carbon dioxide savings, material reusage as well as detailed reports on vape unit collections.

    Superfy said it sees a lot of crossover for its vape solution with battery recycling. The company is currently supporting a nationwide battery recycling programme in Australia, promoting battery-drop off bins in supermarkets, schools and large recreational facilities. In the first year of operations, the smart technology supported a reduction in operational costs for 14,000 collections of 1,000 tonnes of batteries across more than 5,000 collection points.

    Last week, a new study by the non-profit Material Focus has revealed that the number of disposable single-use vapes thrown away has quadrupled in a year, from 1.3 million to nearly 5 million per week.
