Recycling and recovery

SUEZ environnement is inaugurating its new organic reuse centre in Faulquemont, France that will supply electricity and green heat to the region

This morning, Jean-Marc Boursier, Executive Vice-President of SUEZ environnement in charge of recycling and reuse in Europe, and François Lavergne, President of the Faulquemont district authority and Vice-President of the Departmental Council of Moselle, will inaugurate a new organic reuse centre that features a methanation unit developed entirely by the Group. SUEZ environnement offers its customers concrete solutions for the local production of green energy for the energy transition, and has invested €4.2 million in this new methanation unit.

The startup of this new unit in Faulquemont, 40km from the city of Metz, France, represents a concrete step forwards in the energy transition of the region. Thanks to this new unit, SUEZ environnement reuses organic waste from industry, retailers, local authorities and agriculture as new energy resources. This green energy is used locally to meet 70% of the needs of the neighbouring ISMERT industrial company, which specialises in the cleaning of tanks and containers, and also supplies electricity to the mains network of the city of Metz. A concrete and local example of the regional energy transition.
