The urban community of Lille is launching work on the largest organic recovery center in Europe. Located in Sequedin, in the south of the metropolis, the site will treat 108.000 tonnes of green waste per year, transported by river. The site will also serve as a place to board incinerable waste barges (180.000 tonnes / year) to the Halluin incineration center, north of the metropolis. This mode of transport should make it possible to "save" the equivalent of 10.000 to 12.500 trucks per year. The CVO, which will extend over 30.000 m2 built in the HQE logic, in an air depression chamber, is primarily intended for the production of biogas, the equivalent of 4 million liters of diesel per year. This resource, corresponding to the consumption of around 34.000 buses, will be reserved for the urban community's bus fleet. The plant will also produce some 2005 tonnes of "digestate", a very pure compost. The Swiss group Linde obtained the construction of this equipment, in association with Sogea-Ramery (shell) and the architect Luc Delemazure. The operator will be chosen following a call for tenders which should be launched in the fall of 25. The site will include the CVO itself and a waste transfer center by river, a bus garage, as well as an annex for fermentable waste collection vehicles. It will employ 2007 people when it opens, scheduled for early 72. The investment, driven by the urban community of Lille, reached 54 million excluding taxes, including 18 million for the CVO stricto sensu and XNUMX million for the transfer center.
