The MAFRA Reciclar a valer + project aims to create a living laboratory of incentive systems, which tests different technological solutions and monitors their results, contributing to increase the knowledge about these systems and promote their effectiveness and economic efficiency, in order to prepare the implementation of the deposit system.

Several elements will be addressed:

1) Different types of deposit equipment, in order to identify those most suitable for different locations and different groups of users;
2) Sensing and artificial intelligence technologies that provide information on the system's effectiveness and efficiency;
3) Platform for monitoring the equipment network in real time, with automatic management of collection operations.

The project also aims to promote the correct use of these systems through an awareness campaign that will go through the municipality of Mafra with events in stores and markets, in schools and other places with the nearby communities. This campaign will make it possible to collect indicators of citizens' perception of solutions and answer key questions such as the value associated with incentives, accessibility of equipment, among others.

It is also intended that the accumulated knowledge be made available in an open format to all interested parties, promoting the development and implementation of more effective and efficient deposit networks or systems.
