The assurance of transformation An energy recovery waste storage centre The Ecosite non-hazardous waste storage centre has an annual capacity of 220,000 tons and is able to recover energy from non-hazardous ultimate waste from industries and households. The biogas produced by natural waste degradation is essentially comprised of methane and must be destroyed in conformance with the law. Nevertheless, it has a high calorific value which means that it can be exploited for energy, notably electric energy with an annual production of 37,000 MWh. It also enables heat production and to heat the premises and the liquid effluents treatment unit
