Higate is developing Palats, a digital platform for circular resource management. With Palats, materials and inventory are digitized so that they can be tracked and managed directly through your phone or computer. When it’s time to build, renovate or demolish, Palats makes visible what already exists and how the management affects both the economy and the climate. In this way, we ensure that the lifespan of the equipment is maximized and that unnecessary purchases are avoided.
By making circular material and inventory management simple and showing that it can be profitable, we aim to tackle the huge waste problem within the construction and real estate industry. Only in Sweden, the industry generates 10 million tons of waste annually, which accounts for 30% of Swedens’ total waste. This has to change!
