The association of the companies D-WASTE and GET, undertook the implementation of the project “Update and monitor of the WASTEATLAS e-platform for the visualization and monitoring of waste management infrastructures” of the operation entitled: “Supporting agencies for the maturation and effective implementation of operations” with MIS 5131166 with the Contracting Authority of the Ministry of Environment and Energy.

The scope of the contract is the upgrading and expansion of the capabilities of the Hellenic Solid Waste Management Atlas (HSWMA). The provision of aggregated data, saving time when searching and presenting data on solid waste management at local and regional level are key benefits of the operation of HSWMA. In this context, it is considered necessary to update the data, expand the operational capabilities of the system and develop new functions.

The vision behind the implementation of the project is to provide a common operational picture to the officers of Ministry of Environment and Energy, the interconnection with other existing databases (e.g., Electronic Waste Register) but also the transparent availability of updated data to the public, professionals and agencies. With the full operation of the upgraded system, procedures for providing information to stakeholders will be automated, providing modern e-government tools that speed up procedures and ensure transparency

Upon completion of the project, the Agency will have at its disposal a state-of-the-art system, achieving savings by using mature and reliable open-source technologies.
