SUEZ operates Ivry Paris XIII waste treatment and recovery centre

IP XIII plays a key role in the treatment and recovery of household waste sorted and collected in the 11 Paris districts and 14 municipalities* belonging to Syctom metropolitan household waste agency.
The mission

Optimising the energy potential of waste

Located partly in the 13th district of Paris and partly at Ivry-sur-Seine, IP XIII is one of the largest waste treatment centres in the Paris region. It opened in 1969, was modernised in 1995 and, in 2005, was considered the largest energy from waste facility. SUEZ has operated the centre since 2011.

* 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).

Our solution

Optimum recovery

SUEZ recovers waste either as energy, in the form of electricity or heat, or as materials, mainly metals and clinker.
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 results

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.
