Prospect college student participates in Denmark waste project

Dec 14, 2019

Johann Bradley of Prospect, a member of the class of 2021 majoring in industrial engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, was part of a student team that recently completed an intense, hands-on research through the WPI project center in Denmark.

The project was titled Waste Collection Optimization for the Amager Resource Center. In their project summary, the students wrote, "The Amager Resource Center is a public nonprofit waste management company that performs incineration of household waste in their waste-to-energy plant, the Amager Bakke. In a team of four, we designed a series of recommendations centered around E-truck fleet optimization as the company will begin collecting household waste, from the entire Municipality of Copenhagen, effective in 2022."

At WPI, all undergraduates are required to complete a research-driven, professional-level project that applies science and technology to addresses an important societal need or issue. About two-thirds of students complete a project at one of the university's 50-plus off-campus project centers, which are located around the world.
