ENGIE Solutions has just won the contract to operate the Energy Recovery Unit (ERU) for a period of 6 years on behalf of RIVED (Régie personnalisée pour la Valorisation et l’Exploitation des Déchets de la région de Rungis). This new contract enables ENGIE Solutions to operate the entire renewable heat production and distribution chain and to support RIVED in this ambitious target: to recover more than 96% of waste in the form of recyclable materials or energy, over an area of more than 230,000 inhabitants.
As of 1st March 2022, ENGIE Solutions will operate this benchmark site for the circular economy: a plant located at the heart of Rungis International Market and dedicated to recovering an average of 113,000 tonnes of waste per year.
The waste recovered on this site offers a large-scale, carbon-free heating and hot water solution, supplying over 45,000 household equivalents through the following heating networks: (i) Semmaris network; (ii) SICUCV network (Syndicat Intercommunal de Chauffage Urbain de Choisy-Vitry); (iii) Paris-Orly Airport network; and (iv) City of Rungis network.
In addition, ENGIE Solutions will support RIVED in carrying out educational activities on the waste cycle for various publics and partners.
