Innovation: Pneumatic collection of household waste

Where ?
At Romainville, in Seine-Saint-Denis.
Who ?
The City of Romainville, the Ile-de-France, Veolia Environmental Services.
Why ?
Implement an innovative system of waste collection.

Here’s an innovative idea, why not create a waste stream as it is a waste water circuit. No need to collect, and then removing the carbon footprint associated with the flow of dump trucks. It is well known that in the life cycle of a product transport costs a lot to our planet. The other major interest is to remove noise, smell and sight. Forget garbage and stinking cat that shreds garbage for the hurt.

Promising technology

What is very interesting with this technology is that it is possible to multiply at will the collection skips with different types of waste. Each type of waste will have its passing time through the pipe. This separation will save the manual sorting. One can even imagine having a direct collection of WEEE / lamps / split pins at home or in his building.

Trash of the system

The cost of developing this technology is estimated at 1.2 billion euros.
