Blockchain To Be Applied By Public Utilities In Hangzhou
The authorities of Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang province in China, will apply blockchain in the waste management system.
Specialists of the Hangzhou Landscape Architecture Design Institute Co. Ltd. in collaboration with the Association of Blockchain Technology will develop this project. The program will register all stages of the waste treatment, its quantity, and transport logistics.
The project authors believe that the application, first of all, will be of interest to municipal utilities, public environmental organizations, and the residents themselves. Initially, the system will be tested, and, in case of success, launched by the beginning of 2019.
As previously reported, the Belgian state environmental agency will apply blockchain technology in the field of environmental protection.
