Landfills (Nonhazardous waste storage facilities)

For the proper management of its waste storage facilities, Paprec uses top-of-the-line construction techniques and the best recovery technology to ensure that the sites have the lowest possible greenhouse gas emissions and environmental impact.

Secure sites

Paprec’s waste storage facilities use cutting edge technology. Impermeability and leachate draining systems are set-up and regulated by certified companies, the residue collection and treatment equipment is routinely checked, and landfill gas (biogas) is consistently recovered.

Biogas capture and recovery

In waste storage facilities, waste undergoes anaerobic digestion in an oxygen free container, producing methane gas, the main component of biogas.
Paprec can then use that biogas to generate heat and electricity using engines, furnaces, and turbines, a process called Combined Heat and Power (CHP). In our facilities, such as the one in La Chapelle-sur-Oreuse (89), biogas generates electricity for close to 3000 households, and almost all the sites leachate is processed.

Constant environmental monitoring

All of Paprec’s facilities are constantly monitored to ensure that they have the lowest possible environmental impact. There are monthly audits for impact and regulation conformity. All our storage facilities are certified ISO 14001.
