waste recovery

"Eat good, healthy, local food in the canteens of my regionterritory."
Fiche n°02 issue du recueil « Demain mon territoire », copublié par l’ADEME et les EcoMaires à destination des élus locaux pour les aider à intégrer la dimension environnementale dans leur programme au travers de vingt fiches thématiques donnant des pistes d’action et des exemples de solutions mises en œuvre.

La façon dont nous mangeons affecte à la fois notre santé mais aussi le changement climatique. A l’échelle d’une alimentation collective ces conséquences deviennent un enjeu majeur pour les communes. Et c’est pourquoi les villes d’Ile-de-France ont mis en œuvre un Projet alimentaire territorial (PAT) ciblant...
Card no. 02 from the guide “Demain mon territoire” (Tomorrow my Region), co-published by ADEME and the EcoMaires, is intended for elected officials to help them integrate the environment into their programme thanks to twenty information sheets providing ideas for action and examples of implemented solutions.
 
The way we eat affects both our health and climate change. On a collective food scale, these consequences become a major issue for the municipalities.                                                 
That is why the cities from Ile de France have implemented a regional food project (RFP) targeting school restaurants to reduce food waste.
 
The strategy implemented to achieve this is built around three main lines of action: adaptation of the quantity of each menu to children’s hunger, better food waste management thanks to the practice of selective sorting by children and the recovery or organic waste, and finally, awareness and educational work with children and catering staff. Such a project which involves both young and old has already reduced the amount of food thrown away per meal tray by more than 28%.                                       
                                                                     
Through intergenerational mobilisation supervised by municipalities, it is thus possible to promote a sustainable approach to food.
"Valorising bio-waste in my region"
Fiche n°09 issue du recueil « Demain mon territoire », copublié par l’ADEME et les EcoMaires à destination des élus locaux pour les aider à intégrer la dimension environnementale dans leur programme au travers de vingt fiches thématiques donnant des pistes d’action et des exemples de solutions mises en œuvre.
 
Dans une démarche de réduction des déchets permettant de réduire l’impact des activités humaines sur l’environnement, valoriser certains déchets et plus particulièrement les déchets biodégradables peut être un bon moyen pour y parvenir.

Suivant cette stratégie, la...
Fact sheet No.09 from the collection "Demain mon territoire", co-published by ADEME and the EcoMayors, is intended for local elected representatives to help them integrate the environmental dimension into their programmes through twenty thematic fact sheets giving avenues for action and examples of solutions implemented.
 
In a waste reduction approach to reduce the impact of human activities on the environment, recovering certain waste, and more particularly biodegradable waste, can be a good way to achieve this.

Following this strategy, New Aquitaine decided to join the Citizen Compost Network to encourage autonomous composting in its region. Through this initiative, the region brings together elected officials, associations, businesses, bio-waste producers and citizens to promote the practice of composting at all levels. By organising awareness-raising events, setting up local solutions to facilitate the sorting and collection of bio-waste, schools, health establishments, holiday villages, hotels and restaurants and municipalities have started to collect and compost plant waste autonomously.
 
Thus, food and garden waste is recovered by turning it into compost, which can then be spread in gardens and parks in the region as a natural fertiliser.
Through simple actions to recycle plant waste encouraged by the regions, everyone can give a second life to bio-waste while doing good to the planet.
Ametyst methanization plant
AMETYST est une unité de traitement des déchets ménagers et assimilés par voie biologique anaérobie (méthanisation). Ce process permet de transformer une partie de la matière organique en biogaz, utilisé pour générer de l’électricité réinjectée sur le réseau, ou bien de la chaleur, notamment pour alimenter le réseau collectif du quartier montpelliérain des Grisettes.
 
Cette fiche fait partie d'une série portant sur les solutions innovantes pour la ville durable relatives à l'économie circulaire.

Ametyst is a treatment plant for household and similar types of waste that uses anaerobic biological methods (methanization) while producing heat and electricity.

After treatment, the biogas produced by household waste digestion is then transformed by co-generation units into:

  • Electricity, which is injected into the network
  • Heat, which is used by the plant itself for process needs
  • Heat, which is used by SERM for the collective heating and cooling network for the new Grisettes district in Montpellier

This fact sheet is part of a series on innovative solutions for the sustainable city dedicated to circular economy.
