Final treatment for waste

Waste treatment

After the sorting and recycling of waste, at the very end of the line there always remains some refuse to be treated. To do so, Seureca takes into account the local context, environmental constraints, volume, and type of refuse be processed as yet, choosing the best-adapted technology to eliminate this ‘final’ waste in the most economic and environment-friendly manner. Our engineers make upstream assessments including topographical surveys and aerial photos by drone, as well as geotechnical and hydrogeological studies for the design of treatment sites.

Our expertise:

  • Preliminary feasibility study for waste processing plants;
  • Detailed design, including geotechnical study, for waste storage facilities;
  • Topographic survey and aerial photography by drone;
  • Technical assistance for the operation of waste treatment facilities.
Energy recovery from waste

The combustion of non-recyclable waste produces energy, an answer to the energy needs in electricity and heat production for households and local industries. Energy recovery helps protect fossil fuels and reduce the landfilling of potentially incinerable waste. Seureca makes feasibility studies based on the quantity of waste and the local situation to confirm the effectiveness of this type of plant.
Energy can also be generated at waste storage centers via biogas produced from refuse. Seureca’s experts help operators to collect and to best develop this resource while curbing greenhouse gas emissions.

Our expertise:

  • Projection of biogas production from waste storage facilities;
  • Design of a collection system and biogas recovery for waste storage centers;
  • Feasibility studies for the incineration and methanization of waste.
