Did you know that in Norway alone, an astounding 2.7 million plastic bags filled with used paper towels are thrown away every day from washrooms in offices, hotels, and restaurants?

Utilizing a distinctive waste compaction technology and integrated sensors, our aim is to establish a new benchmark for waste management within commercial buildings.
