Glartek Transforms Valorsul's Operational Efficiency with Cutting-Edge Digital Solution

Glarkte’s digital solution was leveraged to digitize daily routines and over 500 questions, enabling a real-time update and a centralized task log and resulting in increased efficiency and enhanced decision-making. 

Lisbon, Portugal – July 5, 2024 Glartek, a leading provider of innovative Connected Worker solutions powered by AR for the manufacturing and asset-intensive industries, has today announced its partnership with Valorsul, a leading company responsible for the treatment and recovery of urban waste of 20% of all household waste produced in Portugal. Glartek helped revolutionize Valorsul’s operational routines through comprehensive digitalization using Glartek’s Augmented & Connected Worker Platform. 

Valorsul’s Urban Solid Waste Treatment Center in Loures, Portugal, responsible for treating approximately 600,000 tons of waste annually, has three shifts and rounds with a total of 500 questions. As a result, they sought to make a significant qualitative leap in their processes, making digitalization a crucial component in optimizing their activities. 

Paper-based routines were eliminated, transitioning all data recording and management to a digital platform. This method lacked the precision to accurately compare historical data, such as temperature variations and pressure readings. Glartek’s digital solution centralized all these records in a comprehensive database, enhancing the accuracy and efficiency of data tracking. 

“Valorsul is a domestic leader in waste treatment and recovery with a strong focus on innovation and continuous improvement. The implementation of our Connected Worker solution allowed Valorsul to fully digitize their routines and provide frontline workers with increased guidance during rounds while managers and directors can now access real-time information, improving the monitoring of all activities and overall decision-making. We continue working side by side with Valorsul to address their needs and ensure increased safety, efficiency, and productivity.”

"We have 3 shifts in a set of about 500 questions and we wanted to make a qualitative leap and, therefore, the question of digitalization arose. Digitalization is going to be crucial for us to be able to optimize our activities. The objective of the implementation was to completely eliminate paper routines, concentrating the values on a data base."

Glartek’s application has streamlined the entire data entry process enabling teams to record and consult data in real-time. For instance, when a fault is detected, it can be immediately logged into the platform. This entry triggers notifications to both the shift manager and the maintenance team, expediting the response process. The transition from paper to digital has also enabled the recording of faults or potential issues using photographs or videos, enabling quicker and more accurate diagnostics. 

The system’s efficiency in addressing operational needs has set the stage for future expansions. Valorsul plans to extend this digital solution to other activities, further embedding digitalization into its core operations.

The collaboration between Glartek and Valorsul showcases the transformative power of digital solutions in enhancing operational efficiency and accuracy. Both companies look forward to continued innovation and success as they lead the way in digitalizing waste management processes.
