SITA DEEE, created in 2006, is a subsidiary of SITA Recyclage and specialises in dismantling Electrical & Electronic Equipment Waste (EEEW in English, DEEE in French). Given the increasing scarcity of natural resources or raw materials and the desire to encourage recycling, in 2006 SITA France created SITA Recyclage, a specialist in recycling end-of-life materials and equipment, in producing recycled raw materials, and in selling them.
Opened in 2009, the Feyzin plant is a prime example of how to fulfil the objectives of controlling pollution and optimising every flow:
