The global information society is growing at a fast pace. At the same time, the increase in purchasing power, urbanization and industrialization in many developing countries have led to an increase in the quantities of products placed on the market and respectively purchased, thus generating large volumes of toxic waste. Thus, digitization and connectivity are critical to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, the transition to an increasingly digitalized world also involves multiple risks due to irrational consumption of resources and mismanagement of waste. In our view, the problem of hazardous waste management is possible by implementing modern and smart digital technologies in waste management, and by implementing waste digitization will improve the health of planet Earth, will reduce the negative impact of pollutant emissions on the environment, will restore essential ecosystems to ensure our long-term sustainability. Thus, the use of waste as a resource is necessary to reduce the need to extract new resources. This study was developed within the State Program 20.80009.0807.22 Development of the mechanism for the formation of the circular economy in the Republic of Moldova.
