Recycling of residual household waste: a virtuous sector

 

 

In the three energy recycling plants of Syctom, the heat given off by the incineration of waste is transformed into steam and electricity.

 

 

The electricity essentially serves the needs of the factory, guaranteeing its energy self-sufficiency..

 

 

The heat produced allows the Paris urban heating networksto be powered.

 
 

Methanisation of biowaste: what is the future? 

 

 

Several studies are being undertaken in the local metropolitan area to assess the sources of biowaste and to understand the feasibility conditions in terms of collection. Diverse solutions have already been identified, by category of producer.

 

 

Experiments are multiplying under the initiative of the municipalities. They are encouraged by Syctom, which is considering a shared biowaste and sludge from sewage plants treating wastewater processing plant, in partnership with the SIAAP.
