  • Sita - Ternay valorisation des terres polluées
    The first facility of its kind in the Rhône-Alpes region (France), this new centre completes the network of five other units in France accredited by SITA under the name Neoter®. Thanks to Neoter®, the polluted soil generated by construction sites and client industrial sites are sorted and pre-treated in order to increase their recovery capacity. In Ternay, the goal is to recover half of the soil treated in situ. In close proximity to the Rhône River with a dock directly accessible, the site of Ternay is ideal for the use of river transport. SITA FD’s goal is to transport half of the global tonnage using maritime means, therefore reducing CO2 emissions and the ecological footprint involved in processing polluted soils and sediments.

  • Sita - Issy les Moulineaux - Dépollution pyrotechnique
    Carried out over the 12 hectares of the Issy-les-Moulineaux Fort, the decontamination consisted of removing asbestos and demolishing the 9.5 hectares of superstructures, infrastructures and networks as well as checking and guaranteeing the safety of the demolition and pyrotechnic decontamination. Some 873 targets were detected, and 2,988 pieces of ammunition (of which 22 were active) were identified and destroyed.

    Following a call for tender, the ADEME (French Environment and Energy Management Agency) charged SITA Rekem with the chemical decontamination of the abandoned factory. According to this contract, LaboServices is responsible for a smooth operation and the coordination of the worksite where SRA SAVAC, specialised in sanitation, and industrial maintenance and local providers will work (electricians, trimmers, metal dealers). They must handle the following operations:
    • evacuating and disposal of 3,900 tonnes of hazardous waste, of which 1,500 tonnes are tainted charcoal powder stored on site;
    • building security as well as hazardous waste identification, sorting, recuperation and reconditioning;
    • draining, cleaning-up and removal of tanks and ponds;
    • transportation and disposal of hazardous waste and charcoal.
    These operations are expected to take 14 months.
