Suez won two contracts for a total amount of MAD 188 million, to support PSA and Renault in the treatment and recovery of their industrial waste.
The PSA group has chosen Suez for the overall management of industrial waste generated by its new plant in the Atlantic Free Zone (AFZ), in Kenitra. This new 3-year contract, which started in October 2019, strengthens the collaboration with Suez, which has been in charge, since 2018, of waste management during the construction of the plant.
Suez will deploy the “Green Compact “solution, which includes a condensed collection plan and a tailor-made waste park. This solution is scalable, both in terms of human and material resources, in order to support the ramp-up in the factory’s production chain, said a press release from Suez.
Suez is committed to supporting the PSA group in achieving its “zero buried waste” objective, by offering innovative solutions for recovering all waste, including composting of organic waste, the statement added.
For its part, the Renault Maroc group renewed, last June, the Suez contract to ensure, until 2022, the sustainable management of the waste from its two production plants in Casablanca (Somaca) and Tangier.
Since 2008, Suez has provided overall management of all types of waste for the Renault Maroc group, from collection in production workshops, sorting of waste (pallets, cartons, metals, process oils, packaging and production plastics), until they are valued or processed by the authorized channels.
Suez also supports Renault in engineering and consultancy with proposals for areas of progress and administrative monitoring, as part of a process to reduce waste and optimize its recovery.
Morocco generates 3.5 million tonnes of industrial waste per year and this deposit should reach 12 million tonnes in 2030.
