Headaches are often associated with any attempt to organize large scale organic waste management. The digital hub that forms part of the Organix project of the SUEZ, is a meeting platform for organic materials producers and users of as well as methane producers. It has won the Award of the Assises des Déchets 2017 Speed Meetings Innovation competition, within the disruptive or digital technologies category.
Headaches may come with organic waste management. Between the choice of the suitable valorization, the time constraints, the compliance with ceaselessly evolving regulation and the question of logistics, the whole process can rapidly become highly complex and discouraging. Thanks to Organix, the first organic product digital market hub, all this is now simple. Just indicate the quantity and nature of your organic waste, set a selling price or fees, and within minutes methane producers will have access to your proposals and will respond according to their needs. This simple solution enables you to reach a large panel of methane producers - hence to get the best price - within a turn-key/traceability/regulatory compliance logic that the Suez Group wishes to guarantee.
It took only five months for a small project team within the Suez Group to develop this truly innovative, data oriented solution which has all the features to support the development of organic waste management. www.organix.suez.fr.

The first Waste Innovation Speed Meetings
Fully aware of the societal stakes and challenges associated with the domain of waste management and the circular economy, in 2017 the Assises des Déchets made the decision to take advantage of the media coverage they generate to foster initiatives and innovative projects in adequacy with the theme of the 14th Assises: "réduire, recycler, valoriser : tenir le cap !" (reducing, recycling, valorizing: staying the course!).
The objective of the Assises was not to challenge the existing competitions and awards, but rather to promote players, projects different sizes, and to submit them to the appreciation of a panel of professionals.
There were three categories: prevention and recyclability, societal initiatives, disruptive or digital technologies.
