SUEZ operates Ivry Paris XIII waste treatment and recovery centre
Optimising the energy potential of waste
* The Ivry-sur-Seine EfW plant receives household waste from 12 Paris districts (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, part of the 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, part of the 14th, and part of the 20th) and 14 inner-suburb municipalities (Cachan, Charenton-le-Pont, Gentilly, Ivry-sur-Seine, Joinville-le-Pont, le Kremlin-Bicêtre, Maisons-Alfort, Montrouge, Saint-Mandé, Saint-Maurice, Valenton, Villejuif, Vincennes and Vitry-sur-Seine).
The plant has 120 people working each day to ensure environmental standards are met. SUEZ has signed environmental, economic and social commitments with SYCTOM.
The Ivry-Paris XIII plant has two identical, 50-tonne/hour capacity furnace-boiler units and a turbine generator. The heat generated by combustion produces electricity, which is injected into the EDF network, or steam reinjected into the Parisian district heating system (CPCU).
Combustion by-products are recovered as clinker. Transported by river, they are treated and reused in road building. Metal by-products are reused in the metalworking industry.
The plant has ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management system.
