MariMatic’s Solid Waste Collection solution conveys  both solid and food waste.

In the renewed Tapiola City Centre in Espoo, Finland there will be a minimal need for waste trucks, since MariMatic® supplied MetroTaifun®, it’s Automated Solid Waste Collection System for transporting waste to the waste containers using strong vacuum air flow. The system was commissioned in April 2016 and it serves the shopping center AINOA in handling solid and food waste.

In Tapiola's AINOA, also the collection of food waste is combined to the solid waste collection system. The solid waste is sorted when entering it to the wall-mounted hatches. Restaurants’ food waste will be entered into a hygienic tank. In both cases, a strong vacuum air flow draws the different waste fractions through a closed pipe network to large waste containers, where the waste is tightly compacted. Waste station is located 25 meters underground in the Tapiola Park 2 maintenance hall. The automated waste collection ensures that the obstructive traditional waste bins shuttling back and forth is avoided in AINOA’s facilities, as well as garbage truck traffic in Tapiola City Centre.

The MetroTaifun Waste Collection System will expand with the regional construction to serve also the other business buildings and the apartments located on their upper floors.
