Synergies & mutualizations

Broadcast of Canal 32 (may 2006)  - 

Article from L'Aube Nouvelle (#60, summer 2007)  - 

Since its informal birth, the Industrial Ecology Club of Aube has instigate the setting of a first industrial ecology synergy concerning a stock of 10 000 to 15 000 tons/year of sand that comes from the washing of sugar beets at Cristal Union (sugar factory of Arcis sur Aube, at the north of the department - France). Until then, the sand was spread out on the surrounding fields in a 30 km radius.

Two systems that were ignoring each other

Today, it is used by a building-industry company, Appia Champagne, in substitution of quarry material. This synergy is even more interesting when it comes from a simple discussion between two actors that met each other within the framework of the IECA. That is why, in a way to favour exchanges and communication between the different economical actors, the Club is attached to its regular meetings between its members and other actors interested in the stakes of sustainable development.

Today, synergy between Cristal Union and Appia Champagne


Setting industrial ecology synergies and mutualizations is conditioned by sensitization of people to the stakes of sustainable development. That is why, the Industrial Ecology Club of Aube cares about participating to local events carrying the environment, renewable energy as well as sustainable development as themes.
