Waste management giant SUEZ has announced the nationwide rollout in France of Organix, the ‘first digital marketplace for organic waste’ linking organic waste producers with biogas operators to facilitate energy recovery from such waste.
The digital platform – currently available in the northern regions of Brittany, Normandy and Pays de Loire – has been developed to provide a secure and simple way for organic waste producers, such as food industry manufacturers, and biogas facility operators across France to process transactions by the end of the year.
The facilitation of this connection between producers and operators aims to grease the wheels of waste recovery and the production of new organic energy sources to further the circular economy and aid the transition to cleaner energy at a local and regional scale.
The transaction process supported by the platform sees producers offer waste on the site with details on its quality and the nature of its flows.
Philippe Maillard, SUEZ’s Senior Executive Vice-President of Recycling & Recovery Europe and CEO of Recycling & Recovery France, says that through the development of the platform “SUEZ confirms its ambition to become the leader in smart and digital services for recycling and recovery”.
He added: “These innovative solutions take up the new challenges facing industry, businesses and local authorities, and they contribute to the concrete development of circular economy in our regions.”
The launch of Organix is the latest move in SUEZ’s attempts to digitalise its services in Europe and create simpler pathways for waste streams to find collection and reprocessing solutions with the group announcing a strategic partnership with Rubicon Global, a cloud-based waste and recycling company connecting waste collectors with waste producers dubbed the ‘Uber of trash’ by Forbes magazine, earlier this year.
