Abstract [en]

SecRePac is a household appliance that simplifies sorting of packaging such as milk, juice and yogurt containers. By shredding the packages SecRePac reduces its volume uptake both in the home and at the recycling station. This leads to minimization of both transports to the recycling stations and truck transport for emptying the containers at the recycling station.The greenhouse effect deteriorates and becomes worse and worse leading to extreme climate changes and natural disasters such as floods as an example. Carbon dioxide emissions are the major reason for this and at least 30 percent of all these emissions come directly from transports. In the EU carbon emissions has decreased in the past few years. But the levels are nevertheless far too high for a sustainable future and the need for ever- new solutions to reverse this negative trend...SecRePac is such a product! SecRePac aims primarily to families where mountains of old empty containers are a familiar sight because it’s boring and there's not enough time in everyday life to go back and forth to the recycling station. Usage of SecRePac saves the user time in everyday life and space at home and you will have more time to spend on other things. Main advantage of SecRePac is that it can minimize unnecessary truck transports significantly, thus making the user a good bet for both himself and our environment.
