PEL Celebrates Global Recognition with Innovation Award at Smart Cities Expo in New Delhi

PEL emerged victorious, winning the Innovation award at the Smart Cities 2024 Expo in New Delhi, India. This achievement made possible through their innovative product, the BriteBin™.

BriteBin™, a cutting-edge, solar-powered, compacting litter bin, emerged victorious despite a highly competitive field of global contenders.  This Expo is a premier platform showcasing India’s burgeoning modernization and evolving urban landscape. During Smart Cities India, which partnered with Converge India, PEL demonstrated its commitment to pushing the boundaries of innovation and sustainability.

The BriteBin™ along with the BriteBin platform manages general and recycling waste effectively across towns and cities. The bin, equipped with an on-board solar panel,  generates energy to power the built-in compactor. Real-time fill level data is reported to the BriteBin™ Data Management platform. This enhances waste collection efficiency for Councils and Local Authorities.

PEL’s range of compacting and non-compacting BriteBins™ are integrated with advanced technology. This represents a pioneering solution to street litter within urban areas. The company’s commitment to innovation aligns seamlessly with the key pillars of urban development highlighted at the Smart Cities Expo, including green buildings, rooftop solar, renewable energy, clean environment, water conservation, and urban mobility.
