The industrial demonstrator for the sustainable city Rêve de Scènes Urbaines (Dream of Urban Scenes), led by VINCI, Véolia and Artelia, offers an original approach with cooperation between public and private stakeholders in the city to experiment and produce innovative urban solutions. It is initially part of a constantly changing region, Plaine Commune, itself located in the heart of Greater Paris.
 
To function, the demonstrator relies on an open ecosystem whose objectives are to implement:
  • a partnership platform for urban innovation,
  • a Living Lab of rebuilding the city on itself,
  • a showcase of the city's French know-how in the Plaine Commune region.
 
Every year, 150 ideas are collected and handed over to Plaine Commune. The region selects ideas that can help implement its strategic development plans.
The ideas and experiments produced as part of Rêve de Scènes Urbaines are intended for dissemination. In France, eight partner regions have joined the approach in order to benefit from ideas and to able to launch local experiments. The dynamics of the Rêve de Scènes Urbaines demonstrator can be increased thanks to the contribution of innovative companies from these regions.
 
Abroad, Rêve de Scènes Urbaines is part of the export efforts of the Strategic Sector Agreement "Industries for Construction", welcoming foreign delegations to France, and feeding local contacts of French companies with the association’s work.
Trilib', self-service waste sorting
Pour permettre à plus de Parisiens de trier plus simplement et pouvoir apporter une solution aux 10 % de Parisiens n’ayant pas de bac jaune, Citeo a conduit et financé une expérimentation à Paris : 40 stations trilib’, des containers de collecte de proximité disponibles 24h sur 24, implantés dans 4 arrondissements.
Mobilier urbain de tri et modulaire, la station trilib’ mutualise 5 flux : les emballages en verre, en métal, les bouteilles et flacons en plastique, les papiers et cartons et enfin les textiles. Innovation digitale et service à l’usager, les taux de remplissage des stations sont disponibles en temps réel sur...
To allow more Parisians to sort their waste more simply and be able to provide a solution to the 10% of Parisians who do not have a yellow bin, Citeo conducted and financed an experiment in Paris: 40 trilib' stations, local collection containers available 24 hours a day, located in 4 districts.
Modular urban sorting furniture, the trilib' station brings together 5 streams: glass and metal packaging, plastic bottles and containers, paper and cardboard, and finally, textiles. Digital innovation and user service, station filling rates are available in real time on the opendata.paris.fr platform.
The City of Paris has decided to deploy these stations that facilitate waste sorting and collection.
Each station collects around an additional 25 tonnes of packaging each year and improves the quality of sorting.
For 9 out of 10 Parisians, they are easy to use and show that waste sorting is really useful. Since 2017, this still experimental arrangement has already allowed the sorting and recycling, among other things, of 55 tons of plastic bottles, or about 2 million bottles.
A thousand Trilib' stations will be deployed throughout Paris from the end of 2019 to 2021 by the City of Paris with the support of Citeo.
 
Protecting Oshakati from heavy flooding during the rainy season
La ville d'Oshakati est l'une des plus grandes villes du nord de la Namibie et souffre régulièrement de fortes inondations pendant la saison des pluies.
 
En collaboration avec son partenaire IMDC, Tractebel a développé une solution durable afin de protéger Oshakati de ces inondations. Cette solution consiste en la construction d'une digue au nord-ouest de la ville ainsi que de ponts et d'écluses pour détourner et contrôler les eaux d'inondation venant de l'Angola autour de la ville. Au sommet de la digue, une partie de la future rocade sera modélisée en 3D et construite selon le plan directeur...
Oshakati is one of the largest cities in northern Namibia and regularly suffers from heavy flooding during the rainy season.
 
In collaboration with its partner IMDC, Tractebel has developed a sustainable solution to protect Oshakati from these floods. This solution involves constructing an embankment to the north-west of the city as well as bridges and locks to divert and control floodwaters coming from Angola around the city. At the top of the embankment, part of the future ring road will be modelled in 3D and built according to Oshakati's design master plan.
 
Key project issues include:
 
  • Defining the necessary measures to adapt community development to climate change, taking into account the relative urgency of the risks identified and available resources in collaboration with all local stakeholders;
  • Developing land use including better management of water resources: run-off, groundwater, rivers, estuaries, coastal waters and designing flood protection measures.

Le projet urbain...
The Caen Peninsula urban project offers new perspectives to the area of Caen la Mer. Sustainable neighbourhoods, soft transport modes, river atmosphere, green environment, economic, cultural and sporting activities all promise an unrivalled environment and quality of life.
 
The municipalities of Caen, Mondeville and Hérouville Saint-Clair, the Caen la Mer Urban Community, the Normandy Region and the Normandy Ports Joint Union have been working together since 2010 to implement an ambitious urban renewal project on the site of the peninsula, which is structuring for the region.
 
The Caen Peninsula urban project covers an operational perimeter of 300 hectares. The member communities of the order group agreed in 2016 on the need to set up a Major Interest Project (MIP), a memorandum of understanding created by Law No. 2014-366 of 24 March 2014 for access to housing and renovated urban planning provided for under Articles L.350-1 to 7 of the Urban Planning Code. The content of the MIP identifies the four structuring urban development projects currently in progress or planned for the future whose aim is to renew the strategic sector of the peninsula in an ambitious and sustainable way:
 
- The Peninsula Point
- La Nouveau Basin joint development zone in Caen
- The Hérouville peninsula JDZ
- The Calix JDZ in Mondeville
WEECAM project: implementation of a sustainable W3E recovery sector in Cameroon
Solidarité Technologique est une association française agissant à Yaoundé dans le domaine de la formation professionnelle des jeunes démunis et la revalorisation et le recyclage des déchets d’équipement électriques et électroniques (D3E).
Les D3E sont une catégorie de déchets posant une double problématique : une croissance rapide ainsi que des contraintes de gestion importantes au vu de certains composants toxiques. Les pays en développement sont particulièrement exposés à cette problématique : leur croissance économique et démographique rapide, ainsi que les changements sociaux et culturels entraînés par le...
Solidarité Technologique is a French association working in Yaounde in the field of vocational training for disadvantaged young people and the recovery and recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment (W3E).
W3E is a category of waste that poses a dual problem: rapid growth and significant management constraints in view of certain toxic components. Developing countries are particularly exposed to this problem: their rapid economic and demographic growth, as well as the social and cultural changes brought about by such development, are leading to a sharp increase in the flow of W3E.
 
Since 2011, La Guilde, a French association recognised as a public utility, has been supporting Solidarité Technologique in setting up the first W3E recycling sector in Central Africa. A first treatment and recovery centre was opened in Yaounde in 2012.
Since then, its activity has been growing and Solidarité Technologique was awarded the Suez Initiative Prize - Institut de France for Social Entrepreneurship in June 2016. La Guilde and Solidarité Technologique are jointly launching the WEEECAM project, a major undertaking whose objective is to move the existing activity on to the semi-industrial scale.
 
The project, when it reaches full maturity at the end of year 5, will allow the full-time employment of 157 people. Partnerships will be established with various local players who will ensure the collection of W3E, in a thoughtful and constructive collaboration with the informal sector.
The success of the project will allow the validation of a model that can be transferred to other countries, particularly in Africa where such activity is currently absent.
