ORDIF conference: Separate collection of bio-waste, 15 March 2016, Paris

ORDIF is organising a conference on the separate management of biowaste and the possibilities this presents within the framework of the European project Bin2Grid.

10 tonnes per year, from 2016 onwards: above this threshold businesses must set up compulsory source sorting of bio-waste. In 2025, this obligation will apply to everyone, including households, as foreseen by the Energy Transition Law.

This new regulatory framework marks the beginning of a new era: that of circular economy of organic matter. It presents many new opportunities for stakeholders in the Paris Region: reduction of amounts sent to disposal, production of organic fertilizer to fight soil degradation, production of energy which is both renewable and storable, soil carbon sequestration, etc. This movement began gradually a few years back. The time has now come to move up another gear. Stakeholders, both public and private, are mobilising to implement effective and viable systems for the separate management of bio-waste. What are these projects? Their success factors? Obstacles they had to overcome?
