Saint Charcoal

The organisation recycles and recovers municipal waste, organic household waste and agricultural waste through methanisation (biogas), composting (fertiliser production) and bioenergy (conversion into coal).

An initiative of Touchain Bot

Overview of the project

The initiative is to recycle and recover municipal waste and organic household waste using several methods. These include methanisation, composting and bioenergy. The first step is to collect the waste, after which it is recycled, i.e. sorted or treated for a specific use. In the end, this waste will be recovered in several forms depending on the methods described above. Ultimately, the waste collected in the city is recycled and then recovered for other environmentally-friendly uses.

Objective

The aim is to recycle and recover municipal waste and organic waste through methanisation, composting and bioenergy. It also aims to reduce insalubrity in the city, which accelerates global warming. Finally, it aims to promote renewable energies through the energy transition, which is important for reducing waste and creating green jobs.
