Paprec inaugurates France’s largest sorting plant

Paprec, the recycling giant, has created Trivalo, its biggest sorting platform in France. The Rennes factory, so far dedicated to business waste, will now sort materials for public entities including Rennes Métropole. Averaging an investment of €22 million and generating 50 future jobs, this latest equipment will reach an astonishing rate of 98% recovery of recyclable materials, collected from 420,000 inhabitants in the Rennes area. The Rennes site has an annual potential of 60,000 tons, 23,000 of which are already operated by Rennes Métropole, following the tender won by Paprec against Veolia. The challenge is to win other communities within 100 km of Rennes. The site is aiming at a turnover of €8-9 million per year.

At group level, Paprec aims to go from 200 to 500 communities; and BtoB sorting activity and professional waste recovery, accounts for 80% of the business to date, with 20,000 companies under contract. The goal is to reach 30,000 within five years. The group recently won contracts with Amazon, DCNS, SKF, and Aéroports de Paris, for whom they claims to have gone from recycling 15 to 55% of waste.
