Hazardous waste management
Industries produce hazardous waste which due to one of its characteristics (defined in the Environment code), presents a risk for people and the environment. Hazardous industrial waste comes in many different types: solid and liquid, packaged or in bulk (skips, tanks). They must all be handled by specialised channels. SUEZ assists its industrial clients in respecting their obligations to ensure compliance with national and international regulations in terms of hazardous waste management. We ensure that people, property and the environment are fully safe at all phases of the process.
Secure the management of hazardous waste
SUEZ provides a guarantee of regulatory compliance for dangerous waste and ensures that people, property and the environment are kept safe at all times.
Access to the best recovery and treatment solutions is possible using our on-site logistic solutions and hub network:
- Sorting at source: internal collection, supply of packaging and labelling, initial sorting
- Creation and operation of logistics organisations: collection, transit, waste flow, export files
- Waste preparation: sorting and grouping, repackaging, physical and chemical preparation, desensitisation of unstable waste.
We guarantee effective control of induced costs and continuity of operations (licence to operate) associated with regulatory compliance and final destinations for waste. We provide a panel of tools to support variations in production, whether in volume or nature of waste. We develop flexible solutions suited to each type of hazardous waste, which guarantee the safety of people and prevent risks:
On-site sorting and grouping
Hazardous waste is isolated from other waste and collected then grouped for easier pre-treatment and transportation.
We use cost-effective management tools to ensure optimum traceability of waste through to its elimination or recycling, in accordance with applicable standards.
We provide specific containers to transport hazardous waste and propose multimodal logistics solutions that comply fully with all regulations. We also assist our clients for cross-border transport.
Reinforce environmental performance
Industrial companies are faced with dual issues: optimise costs while reducing the impact of their activity on the environment. SUEZ provides support to preserve and optimise resources, while lowering your environmental footprint but also showcase your brand through strong involvement in the circular economy.
We provide our clients with a variety of solutions to handle all types of hazardous waste using fully environmentally-sound procedures:
- Chemical and thermal channels: concentration by evaporation, physical and chemical, incineration, co-incineration, cementing, salt water etc.
- Mineral channels: storage, stabilisation etc.
Recover hazardous waste more effectively
SUEZ contributes to preserving natural resources by supplying industrial companies with materials and energy generated from the recovery of hazardous waste. By processing hazardous waste, we produce secondary raw materials and energy in order to maximise the efficiency of resources and reduce your environmental footprint.
