The energy recovery unit, Isséane, located in Issy-les-Moulineaux in the west of Paris and owned by Syctom, attracts more and more visitors every year and not just any old visitor! Many of them have travelled from afar to discover this exemplary factory renowned for its architecture and performance. Two-thirds of this waste treatment plant is buried in the ground and it is unanimously hailed.
At the end of 2016, the Syctom and TIRU teams received the President of the Casablanca Region, Mr. Mustapha Bakkoury.
He was invited by Valérie Pécresse to discuss the future cooperation agreement between the Île-de-France Region and Morocco. It was during this visit that the President expressed the wish to visit the Issy-les-Moulineaux energy recovery unit, the "urban power plant of tomorrow".
A few months later, it is time for Mr Riadh Mouakhar, Minister of Local Communities and Environment in Tunisia, to discover Isséane alongside Hervé Marseille, President of Syctom, Vice-President of the Senate, and Senator-Mayor of Meudon. The Tunisian Minister carried out a technical visit of the site to understand its ingenious transformation system, which makes it possible to supply nearly 85,000 households with electricity and heating from their own household waste.
Asia has also taken an interest in this special unit. The site's operating teams welcomed a Chinese delegation accompanied by the Mayor of Sanmexia (Western China) and a delegation from EDF Datang, Zhejiang Province. For Singapore, Isséane is also worth the detour! A Singapore delegation, made up of members of the National Climate Change, recently visited the unit. They said they were very impressed by this installation with its unique design, which allows real urban integration and is fully in line with the Sustainable City issue.
Avec ses 700 000 MWh produits par an, son toit entièrement végétalisé et sa plateforme fluviale d’évacuation bas carbone, l’unité de valorisation énergétique d’Isséane continuera sans aucun doute d’attirer tous ceux qui s’intéressent à l’avenir de la valorisation des déchets, dans tous les pays du monde.
