For optimal raw material recycling, Veolia makes use of innovative technologies in its high performance sorting centres in France.
In Amiens, two new Veolia patented processes – auto-adaptive sequential sorting (TSA2) and remotely operated sorting – make for a much faster and more efficient process, just with the touch of a finger on a screen! An advantage for the planet given that a metric ton of recycled plastic prevents the emission of 2,290 kg CO2 equivalent.
Key figures illustrating solution deployment and results
Coverage of a catchment area of 400,000 inhabitants
Processing capacity: 22,000 metric tons of household waste per year
Nearly 2.5 times more waste sorted per hour using the TSA2 technologies and remotely operated sorting
6% more household packaging recycled using the remotely operated sorting process
