The operator of Alcea’s waste recovery and treatment center since October 2012, Séché Environnement is a vital link in the waste management chain, serving the 600,000 inhabitants of the Greater Nantes urban area. The plant accommodates three types of waste: household waste, non-hazardous industrial waste and medical waste. Discover the passion of these women and men who dedicate their skills to a great public-interest mission: handling the waste produced by households and industry, recovering and treating them under the best possible technical and environmental conditions.
