Dear community members,

In a previous newsletter, we mentioned our different equipment enabling us to treat odour from our process air. Did you know that the efficiency of this system is enhanced thanks to the concept of negative pressure?

This means that air is drawn into the plant to be treated (by boilers and wet scrubbers) and then released outside the plant. This allows us to effectively treat nearly all odorous particles associated with our operations.

In addition, and as previously mentioned, an odour abatement system, the mist park, which operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during the Summer, is used for trucks waiting outside the plant

We can confirm that the processing of the organic matter received is going well and that we will start the progressive shut-down of the plant on Saturday during the day, for a complete shutdown in the night of Saturday to Sunday.
