Syctom, a “natural” partner of the COP21


Syctom is linked to the event both as a public service and as an expert. It is in charge of providing information on waste processing products during the event and informing the public on the « best practice » for sorting, as it does at various events dedicated to promoting sustainable development, in partnership with its member municipalities.

The COP21 is an ideal meeting ground for experts, in which Sytcom can highlight its capacity for innovation, its exemplarity in waste recycling and the performance of its facilities. It’s also an opportunity for the general public to get informed about the progress in knowledge on global warming..
