Arkema reaffirms its confidence in SUEZ to manage and recover industrial waste on 20 sites in France

Building on their 12-year partnership, Arkema, a global player in chemistry and Specialty Materials, and SUEZ, are renewing their contract for the next three years, for a total of €38 million revenue. SUEZ will manage and recover around 60,000 tons of waste per year. This partnership will ensure Arkema’s business continuity and contribute to its economic and environmental performance.

The new contract is consistent with SUEZ’s Shaping SUEZ 2030 strategic plan, which aims, in particular, to accelerate growth with industrial customers and roll out innovations and digital solutions in high value-added activities.

Within this contract SUEZ is developing solutions aimed at optimizing the management and recovery of all industrial waste produced on 20 sites located across France. Nine experts will oversee the contract’s day-to-day performance, managed by Industrial Waste Specialties (IWS), a SUEZ entity that specializes in hazardous waste management and recovery in Europe. Working closely with Arkema’s Environment services, IWS’ teams are committed to driving forward progress and reducing the environmental footprint.

Beatriz Mendez, Vice President of Goods & Services Procurement of Arkema, commented: “In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Arkema fully mobilized to ensure business continuity in an effort to provide products and services that are essential to strategic sectors of activity. SUEZ’s teams also rallied together, playing an active role on the ground to treat and recover waste. In doing so, they ensured that our production chain remained unbroken and helped us to ensure service continuity.”
