The "Grand Paris" (Greater Paris) challenge
On the eve of the start of a huge project, i.e. the construction of 200 kilometres of the future automatic Grand Paris Express metro line, plus the complete renovation of areas bordering the new infrastructure, recycling companies able to treat demolition-, reconstruction- and construction-site waste, like Paprec Group, are preparing themselves to face up to an absolutely colossal challenge.
A Big Gamble
The construction plant used on the major sites in Ile-de-France should, in effect, generate the equivalent of five to seven thousand Olympic-size swimming pools of rubble and earth between 2015 and 2030, i.e. 20 million cubic metres of inert waste.
Three quarters of this public works and construction-site waste will be produced by the digging of tunnels and the volumes of demolition, reconstruction and construction site waste coming from the construction of buildings, as mentioned above. To organise the evacuation of waste, the removal of rubble and the re-use of construction-site waste, Société du Grand Paris (SGP) has, since 2010, been carrying out a rigorous survey of construction-site waste treatment installations capable of taking such waste from Ile-de-France. The specific aim is to spread the management of building-site waste over the entire Ile-de-France area, but also to put the emphasis on re-using the waste and recycling rubble.
