Ecube Labs, a smart solar-powered waste and recycling station provider specializing in data-driven smart waste management and recycling, said it sued Big Belly Solar, Inc. for alleged patent infringement in connection with an ongoing lawsuit in the US District Court for the Central District of California.
Ecube alleges in the suit that Big Belly infringes Ecube’s US patent that covers Ecube’s novel system of smart waste management.
Ecube’s patented technology enables Ecube’s licensed partners to operate a smart waste and recycling management system using smart solar-powered compactors.
Ecube Labs CEO Sean Gwon said: “Ecube Labs is proud of the technology we have developed.
“We have leveraged deployments in smart city initiatives around the globe to develop the world’s leading smart waste management system.
“The patent we are asserting in this case represents the important technologies in our IP portfolio, which are vital to the autonomous and intelligent functions of a smart solar-powered compactor.
“We filed this suit to stop Big Belly’s unauthorized use of our patented technologies.”
