Learn more about Kando’s Wastewater Intelligence System
Kando protects public health and the environment by enabling wastewater utilities to control the wastewater quality in the entire city by analyzing data and making data-driven decisions.
Kando provides water utilities with a real-time bird’s eye view of wastewater quality in their collection systems, so they can make data-driven decisions to improve effluent quality, allow reuse, and increase efficiency.
The system collects data from the collection system with unique IoT units, using cloud-based AI and ML tools to analyze the data and create actionable insights. These insights enable a behavioral change within the industry and by that improving wastewater quality. The technology identifies events, traces the source of events, and gets early warning notifications. Kando operates in North America, Europe, Australia, Asia and Israel.
Kando has two advanced digital solutions, available globally:
Kando Pulse provides wastewater utilities with unprecedented visibility over their collection networks, enabling them to minimize pollution, reduce costs, and maximize efficiencies.
The solution combines cutting edge wastewater quality sensors and smart samplers with a user-friendly data fusion and analytics software engine, optimized to deliver operational intelligence in real-time.
IoT units collect condition data from inside wastewater collection networks, and transmits them live to Kando’s cloud-based analytics engine. There, proprietary algorithms transform the data into actionable insights, providing real-time visibility of conditions across entire wastewater management systems.
Via Kando’s active online dashboard, utilities and wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) can see condition changes as they happen, and receive live alerts outlining exactly what every change means to them. Pollution events can be identified, profiled, and mapped, allowing operators to minimize damage to treatment systems and trace contamination sources easily.
Kando Pulse allows capabilities and analytics that are currently unavailable elsewhere in the market, such as future modeling; configurable, automatic, and real-time event alerts; contamination source analysis, and polluter identification. As a result, WWTPs can operate more efficiently, reducing resource consumption, environmental impacts, OPEX, and CAPEX.
Combining smart wastewater sampling and laboratory analysis, Kando’s wastewater-based epidemiology solution can pinpoint and profile virus outbreaks in specific private and public spaces, effectively monitoring entire populations within a surveyed area without compromising individual privacy.
In the case of COVID-19, because infected persons shed virus RNA in their stool up to 72 hours before developing outward symptoms, wastewater testing can potentially identify outbreaks several days earlier than individual testing practices, buying authorities vital time to contain and manage outbreaks.
Kando’s smart composite samplers continuously monitor wastewater flow rates and other quality parameters in order to optimize sample accuracy. Sampling is done automatically, using field-proven smart samplers. Once gathered, samples are collected and taken to partner labs for analysis using Kando’s protocol for RNA detection, optimized by Israel’s leading researchers in wastewater microbiology. Results and reports from detection analysis are delivered to users via an online data visualization platform, mapping infection patterns and estimating outbreak’s severity within target areas.
With this impartial visibility into population health, authorities can act decisively supported by clear data insights, minimizing the spread of infections, encouraging productivity and saving lives.
