Environmental Sediment Treatment (EST, Saint-Avé) has won the national Talents prize in the innovation category for its desilting robot that drags and extracts marine and river sediments in a continuous process. The machine also sorts and recycles recovered waste. This second prize follows on quickly from the first for EST which was awarded the Coup de Pouce prize by the Ministry of the Environment. EST is currently organising finance for work on the technological development of its robot. A mock-up of this robot was revealed during COP-21 in Paris in December. It also received the top national award in the SME Adaptation category at the Solutions Climat trophies. This prize is awarded to the best corporate solutions to anticipate and react to the risks of climate disruptions.
