“Enforce or encourage?” The overarching theme of the 2019 edition of the National Forum on Waste Management keenly questions the world of waste, echoing the movements that are rippling through our society. National regulation and territorial experimentation, individual behaviour and technological breakthroughs: these subjects will be the focus of the National Forum Waste Management, on the 2nd and 3rd October 2019 in Nantes. Thierry Meunier, President of the association,
Manta is his new mantra. The Sea Cleaners association is working onthis virtuous and innovative boat, which is the figurehead of Yvan Bourgnon’s new life. As the "gladiator of the seas", present at the next Waste Forum, has set his greatest challenge yet: to find a viable solution to clean the oceans.
Guest of honour at the next Waste Forum in Nantes, Nathalie Gontardis a leading expert on the issue of plastic packaging, exploring promising avenues for innovative and truly biodegradable materials. She deciphers the limits of the actions currently implemented to reduce pollution caused by plastics.
The European Union’s plastics strategy, announced at the beginning of 2018, will have a sustainable impact on the production and consumption of these materials. While the ban on single-use products has made a strong mark, only a global structural system can bring real change to the world of plastics. Michel Sponar, representative of DG Environment in the European Commission, outlined the new European regulations that he will be explaining during the Waste Forum.
The 15th Assises des Déchets will be held on 2 and 3 October 2019 in Nantes; this event will be structured around an exciting common thread: "Waste and resources: coercion or incentives?"
Headaches are often associated with any attempt to organize large scale organic waste management. The digital hub that forms part of the Organix project of the SUEZ, is a meeting platform for organic materials producers and users of as well as methane producers. It has won the Award of the Assises des Déchets 2017 Speed Meetings Innovation competition, within the
Efficient recycling of plastered bricks is a demanding challenge. A novel solution came from the partnership between ‘’Serfim recyclage’’ and ‘’Vicat Eco-valorisation’’. It won the 2017 Assises Speed Meetings Innovation Award in the Prevention and Recyclability category.
The Run Eco Team project, conducted in association with the IRU company, won the Award of the Assises des Déchets 2017 Speed Meetings Innovation competition, in the societal initiatives category.
Timeline: 2022! At the beginning, in the field of waste sorting, priority was given to packages whose recycling was technically feasible, i.e. plastics, bottles and flasks. Technology has improved, new plastic recycling schemes have been developed, and the law now imposes to extend sorting requirements to all plastic packages by 2022. Majors efforts have been made, with positive structuring results. A summary of discussions held in Workshop 1 of the Assises is given
The objective of Workshop 2, the first of its kind in the Assises, was to explore advances to be expected from new technologies, and to take stock of the current situation.
Although the bulk of waste is now recovered and treated in adequate conditions, some bad practices are still prevailing. Somme waste is still left on the side of the road and sometimes exported or used illegally, and often ends up in the oceans. Such practices are difficult to quantify and to control, as they combine minor offences and much more organised systems. Here-below is a summary of discussions held in Worskhop 3 of the Assises.
A real novelty! The regional level now appears as the right one for the planning of waste management, in many dimensions, including a transversal dimension. This is illustrated by two regions – Pays de la Loire and Occitania. Here-below is a summary of discussions held in Workshop 4 of the Assises.
Aware of the fact the plastics industry conveys the negative image of a waste generator, the Plastics Industry Federation made the decision to significantly improve its recycling capabilities to correct the situation. Therefore, the plastics industry has decided to comply with the prohibition of plastics disposal to be enforced in 2025, and took advantage of Workshop 7 of the Assises to assert its leads.
Eco-design deconstruction instead of demolition, circular economy, labels, innovation… The stakeholders multiply their actions associated with the construction and demolition waste management (CDWM), aware of the fact that such waste amount to a potential resource of 227 million tons per year.Minutes of workshop 8 of the Assises.
A third of all household waste materials are bio-waste to which must be added a significant quantity coming from larger organizations. Hence, the cost and impact of this resource must be addressed. Following the new regulations governing composting, the new framework of energy transition law sends another strong signal. The reduction of bio-waste materials and of their landfilling, the improvement of the material recycling rate, the generalization of source sorting before 2025 are
Innovation, sharing, prospective... More than ever, the Assises Nationales des Déchets mark their difference in the realm of waste management. On September 27th and 28th2017, in Nantes, this event will make another breakthrough with new ideas, discussions that will include societal dimensions, and innovations to be valorised.
The next Assises des déchets will address the issue of the pollution of the sea trough the eyes of key players. It is a top-level issue for professionals like SUEZ, which have taken multiple initiatives to address it. Here is an overview with Philippe Maillard, managing director of recycling and recovery activities of SUEZ in France.
It’s a national first: The Pays de la Loire Region signed a performance agreement with the Ademe, at the beginning of November, for the implementation of an ambitious policy in the field of circular economy. Both partners are committed to working hand in hand to establish an action plan by 2019.
In 30 years, the Assises Nationales des Déchets (National Forum on Waste Management) has earned an impressive reputation. This event - unique in the waste management sector - is the only forum fully dedicated to this topic in France. The 14th Assises will be held in Nantes, on 27 and 28 September 2017.
The Assises des Déchets has been a not-to-be-missed event for almost 30 years – they were first held in 1991 –, as they are an annual national event and anticipated gathering point for industrialists, associations, local governments and government departments and agencies. Their 15th edition will take place on October 2nd and 3rd, 2019 in Nantes.
