Health issues related to waste and wastewater around storm-water disposal have been included in the remit of the project. To strengthen technical capacities in the field of sanitation and hydraulic expertise, a management training programme has been set up in partnership between ENGEES (Ecole Nationale du Génie de l'Eau et de l'Environnement de Strasbourg) and the Institut Universitaire de Technologie (IUT) de Douala.

Wexity is a modern digital platform, built for shared and collaborative use, designed to be accessible to all audiences within a municipality, from elected officials to senior managers and municipal technicians. We believe that only a solution used and controlled by local users can be sustainable.
Innovation also comes from Wexity's ability to produce pragmatic analyses: how many people live in flood-prone areas? Which equipment is subject to environmental risk? Where are the areas that do not have access to drinking water? Which residential areas are furthest from schools? These are simple, obvious questions that cities are often not able to answer without external advice.
En raison de la croissance démographique, de l’urbanisation et des taux de développement économique, la production mondiale de déchets croit exponentiellement. Pour prévenir et résoudre les problématiques sociales, économiques et environnementales qui en découlent, SUEZ a développé une suite de 5 solutions flexibles et complémentaires afin d'optimiser son offre de recyclage et valorisation des déchets.
Landfill, a source of renewable energy
The project is a landfill gas recovery and utilization in Laogang (East China Sea coast in Shanghai, in the district of Pudong), on an existing landfill site. The main objective was to collect and utilize gas (mainly methane) to generate electricity by installing LFG collection and pre-treatment system, electricity generation system and LFG flaring system on site.
To date it is the largest facility of its kind in operation in Asia

EDF created a decision making tool, which helps local players to plan and design an energy system of their urban project: it’s a 3D web-platform, which offers the possibility to build various energy scenarios at the early stage of a project and to evaluate quickly their impact on costs and benefits. Thanks to this innovative approach, EDF group, in partnership with the Chinese urban planning institute Tongji UPDI (Shanghai) and the French architecture studio AUC, won in 2014 the first prize of a competition for the development of the new district of Lingang in Shanghai. By enabling to reduce CO2 emissions and electricity peak load by 50%, the solutions advocated by EDF’s tool perfectly match the specific low carbon challenges of this district.
