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?"
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
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
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.
Although the energy transition law (LTECV) provides for the recovery of 55% of bio-waste by 2020, one million tons are still “wasted” every year in France: to limit burial and incineration, the priority is thus more than ever to capture this resource, which represents about 36% of household refuse, and to direct it towards solutions of composting or methanisation. Three experiences of source capture with encouraging results are presented below.
Within a few years, individual sorting has given rise to a real industrial recycling program… which has now to move to a new level to develop and match future regulatory ambitions.
