We manage the whole waste recovery chain to ensure efficient recycling and reuse, while delivering support for the resulting sale.
We transform residual waste into electricity and heat to help meet the energy needs of local industrial and household consumers.
This energy production puts you at the centre of the energy transition process, providing multiple benefits such as:
We implement a diverse range of processes to transform all types of residual waste into energy:
Waste to energy:
The heat produced by the combustion of non-hazardous waste heats up a water circuit which in turn, drives turbines and generates electricity and/or heat,
Treatment and incineration of hazardous waste in special flues at the heart of chemical plants to supply energy as steam to industrial customers.
Production of substitute fuels: waste is treated to obtain substitute liquid and/or solid fuels with a high calorific value (CLS, CSS).
Cogeneration enables the production of both types of energy simultaneously. The CHP+® process developed by SUEZ enables the recovery of residual heat generated by waste combustion and its use in local activities.
When buried, the fermentation of certain waste generates biogas. This can be used as a valuable contribution to local energy mixes.
We propose biogas recovery methods specifically suited to local contexts: natural gas transport or distribution networks nearby, local energy needs (residential, public buildings, tertiary, industrial), presence of LNG refuelling stations, etc.
We deliver end-to-end support on your project: design and engineering, selection and dimensioning of channels, construction of biogas units, operation and through-life optimisation of facilities.
We also propose an anaerobic digestion service, mixing together organic household waste with waste from business activities and agriculture. Methane offers a calorific value 25 higher than CO2. Once captured and recovered, the methane is injected into urban and industrial supply networks to replace natural gas.
In 50 years, the use of plastic has increased twenty-fold, and certain consumer products contain more than 50 different plastic resins. So recycling them poses a technical challenge.
As a key player in plastics recycling, SUEZ is an expert in all plastic recycling techniques for bottles, containers, plastic films, technical industrial plastics etc., even the most complex techniques need to recycle food-grade plastics.
Our solutions cover the whole value chain to produce secondary raw materials to satisfy the highest standards:
Wood waste is generated in all activities of the wood industry, from forestry operations to the manufacture of packaging materials such as pallets.
Wood containing no chemical products can be burned in private or communal boiler plants. Non-reusable pallets are crushed to make chips that can be used in chipboard or heating pellets, while reusable pallets are repaired and returned to service.
We offer a wide range of products:
Secondary raw materials are traded as goods on local, national, European and even international marketplaces.
We manage all phases of production through to the sale of your new materials:
We work closely with our customers to define the best solutions together.
From environmental engineering to facility management, we bring you our expertise to carry out your projects:
