Modawi is the modular system fordigital waste management.
Modawi supports all processes for the use of electronic documents according to the Act for Promoting Closed Substance Cycle Management (KrWG) and the Ordinance on Waste Recovery and Disposal Records, and administrates electronic registries, incl. signature renewal.
Modawi WebSigner, as a Modawi add-on module, is a Web application enabling signatures in the browser. Controlled by your own waste management software documents are prepared, and simply provided to customers, local representatives, or subcontractors for signature on the Web. Only precisely defined fields may be changed in the documents by recipients – your data stay consistent.
Individually tailored business processes keep companies a step ahead of the competition. The efficiency of these business processes primarily depend on specifically customized IT applications. You can rely entirely on Consist as your IT partner: We develop, manage, and modernize your applications; we are extremely flexible and provide you with high quality.
3 million documents with 9 million qualified electronic signatures from three or more different companies each – before a document even reaches the subsequent official handling process: With the Electronic Waste Records Procedure (eANV) for the first time a complex process chain with many participants and variable workflows was transferred to an electronic system and placed in routine operation throughout Germany. Consist ITU made a significant contribution to that success, and carries these experiences into other business areas such as transport, environmental and food control.
Do you want to know more? Do you need quicker responses? Thats's when a conventional relational database hits its limits, because to get more out of your data, you need to store it in as "raw" a form as possible. Customer portals, weighing systems, the electronic records procedure, and the increasing use of telematics in waste management generate large volumes of entirely differently structured data. This needs to be stored in a simple and permanent way, as well as assessed for your business success. Big data is the solution, but what does that actually mean in concrete terms?
Earlier, waste used to be simply tossed onto the garbage dump and you’d try to forget it. Now that more and more raw materials are growing scarce, people are talking about landfi ll mining as part of urban mining, meaning digging valuable materials out of old dumps. In IT we talk about data mining, but now it’s not just experts that dig into the mountains of data – now we’re all rolling in Big Data.
HM-Software, the new cooperation partner of Consist ITU, is using its QDS-OGM quality database to support residue monitoring of pesticides in fruit and vegetables. The commercial companies coop eG, Dohle, EDEKA, Globus, Kaiser’s Tengelmann, METRO (Real, METRO Cash & Carry, Kaufhof), Norma, REWE, tegut, and others are all operating inspections of our fruit and vegetables at the portal fruitmonitoring.com. But analysts are needed at the other end of the goods lifecycle, too.
No, waste transporters aren’t just staying in the left lane these days. The new Closed Substance Cycle Waste Management Act (KrWG) passed on February 2, 2012 doesn’t speed the trucks up, but rather puts data processing in waste management into the fast lane. Two years ago on April 1, 2010, the so-called electronic waste records procedure became mandatory. Since then, millions of documents have been electronically signed and sent back and forth across Germany. Since that is working so well, the update to the law made it possible for numerous other electronic documents and procedures to go forward, but in a unified system.
Do you know this situation? You have come up with a long list of environmental requirements, guidelines, and of course laws and ordinances that affect your company. Then you derived measures and determined who does what and when. But even as you are working on the last lines of your list, you have the impression that something is wrong, because an ordinance has changed, a machine was replaced, or changes took place in your organization or staff. So do you just start from scratch? Because naturally you want to run your company right.
There are an increasing number of topics in outsourcing where a company needs more than just additional staff. In this kind of trust situation, Consist Application Maintenance Services (AMS) have dominated for years due to their reliability and personal engagement. That successful concept has now been extended to nearshoring as well – and so AMS has become “Managed Services”.
Electronic processes are increasingly relieving the burden on governmental agencies and enterprises alike. This is particularly true when these processes are continuous between all participants. The introduction of the electronic records procedure in waste management makes this quite clear. Consist ITU Environmental Software, or Consist ITU for short, is a key participant in the development of this exemplary continuous solution, since they are developing software for the government agencies, for companies involved in waste management, and also working with IBM to create the Central Waste Coordination Office – ZKS-Abfall.
The amendment to the Ordinance on Waste Recovery and Disposal Records (NachwV) of the Circulation Management and Waste Law (KrW/AbfG), passed in August 2006 and taking force on February 1, 2007, provides for a largely paperless electronic verification procedure using qualified electronic signatures (NachwV, section 4). This electronic verification is obligatory for the documentation of the disposal of waste particularly in need of monitoring (in the future "hazardous waste"). As of February 2010, disposal providers, waste producers, and transporters must manage all documentation electronically, along with
qualified electronic signatures. These signed electronic documents, just as the paper documents used until now, must be retained for 10 years or longer.
ITU, a subsidiary of MaK DATA SYSTEM focusing on waste management, was on show on January 30 and 31, 2007, in Stuttgart, at that industry’s most important event, the ak dmaw professional symposium. The topic of interest this year was the amendment to the Ordinance on Waste Recovery and Disposal Records, for which ITU provides its customers comprehensive services starting with technical consulting on the introduction of new waste management processes and culminating in Modawi, the solution for electronically signed documents in waste management.
Transport vehicles carrying wastes hazardous to human health or the environment are required in Germany to maintain permits and be monitored. Using the waste monitoring system ASYS, the data required by the waste disposal process can be collected and processed reliably. ASYS was developed by ITU, a subsidiary of MaK DATA SYSTEM, together with Condat AG in Berlin. It is now used in more than 1000 workplaces.
