Collection, the first stage in waste management, is increasingly becoming a question of logistics. Seureca is developing innovative solutions to implement waste collection in places where waste management services do not yet exist, and make collection more efficient by limiting environmental impact and encouraging sorting at the source to increase recycling rates in most developed countries.

Solutions:
  • Logistic optimization via GIS modeling
  • Recommendation for collection equipment
  • Set up of the collection services
Waste recycling

In a world where resources are limited, the recycling of waste became more and more strategic for both municipalities and industries. This implies sorting of materials and preparation of the material for the recycling processes. Seureca can accompany both municipalities and industrials to determine which materials are the most beneficial to recycle, and develop and implement a strategy for recycling in the most efficient and sustainable way.

Solutions:
  • Design for Material Recovery Facility
  • Technical assistance for operation Material Recovery Facility
  • Awareness campaigns
Waste treatment
waste collection

At the end of the chain, after sorting and recycling the recyclable waste, there will be always some waste that needs to be treated. For this, Seureca will consider the local context, the environmental constraints, the amount of waste, the type of waste to be treated and determine the best technology to eliminate this “final” waste in the best economic and environmental way.

Solutions:
  • Prefeasibility study for waste treatment facilities
  • Design for landfill
  • Technical assistance for operating waste treatment facilities
Waste reuse and waste to energy
waste to energy

Seureca supports the growing demand for renewable energy and, wherever possible, develops solutions for its customers to be supplied with green energy. The energy generated by the combustion of non-recyclable waste produces electricity and heat for either local industry or domestic energy needs. Waste-to-energy therefore helps conserve fossil fuels, limit greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the volume of waste sent to landfills.

Solutions:
  •  Technical assistance for operating incinerator
  •  Design for landfill gas valorization
Social engineering
