Ecopole of waste recovery

Remediation of the industrial site in Noyelles Godaut (North of france) and reconversion into an ecopole of waste recovery and recycling 

Located in the North of France region on the site of the old 50-hectare metallurgical plant the company Metaleurop Nord left vacant, the site has been rehabilitated by the Group in 2008 after three years of work on dismantling and decontamination.

The history of the site, its successful conversion, as well as the variety of the companies developing on it, and its positioning on multimodal logistics services, together make the environmental technology park a highly attractive industrial area in the North of France region.


Industrial services provided on this site:

  • Cable recycling:

RECYCABLES develops innovative technologies by combining various sorting, cutting and grinding methods for electric cables, telecommunication cables, special cables, and those used on demolition sites.

  • Sorting and recycling waste from the industries and local authorities:

The Group has a process for sorting and packaging clean, dry mixed waste that can be used to separate and recover more than 9 kinds of paper and cardboard, 3 grades of wood, 20 grades of plastics and 4 different sizes of rubble.

  • Pallet recycling:

The Group collects, sorts, repairs, stores and recovers wooden pallets from the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region.

  • Remediation of soil and sediment:

The Group is authorised to receive 120,000 tonnes of soil and sediment contaminated with hydrocarbons from plants, local authorities, and industrial wasteland in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region and the Benelux countries each year. In 2009, the biological treatment of a batch of 12,000 tonnes of contaminated soil enabled its reuse as part of revegetation projects.


The ecopole in figures

  • 35,000 tonnes of cables processed per year
  • 100,000 tonnes of waste processed per year
  • 250,000 pallets recycled per year
  • 20,000 tonnes of soil decontaminated per year
