Digital Marketplace for Organic Waste in France

Suez, a French-based global expert in the waste and water sector, has launched “Organix” – according to the business group, “the first digital marketplace for organic waste” in France.

As reported, this platform can connect producers of organic waste (food industry manufacturers, cooperatives, etc.) and methanation unit operators, who transform them into energy. “They can manage transactions in a simple and secure manner while Suez provides logistics and transportation,” the information says. The group also ensures the quality of the materials with an audit of the producers and a flows diagnosis. “Already available in some French regions (Brittany, Normandy and Pays de la Loire), ‘Organix’ will cover the entire territory by the end of the year and will gradually be enhanced with new functionalities,” Suez assures.

The new digital marketplace works like an auction platform – organic waste can be sold similar to those used for common consumer goods:
■ The producer of organic materials makes an offer with details of the quality and the nature of its flows.
■ The waste-to-energy operator can accept the offer, in which case the transaction is validated immediately, or he can make an offer as part of the auction system.
■ When the auction closes, the producer accepts or rejects the best offer made to him.

Optimizing the connection

According to the French group of companies, “Organix” represents a genuine breakthrough from the existing trading system and meets two needs. “On the one hand, producers of organic waste do not always find the right recovery channel, while, on the other, operators of methanation units sometimes have difficulties with their supplies of organic materials due to inconsistent quality, unreliable sources, regulatory compliance and traceability,” Suez points out. By optimizing the connection between these actors, this platform would encourage and facilitate waste recovery and the production of new organic and energy resources at a local level, for the benefit of circular economy and the regional energy transition. With this new offer the group would confirm its ambition to become the leader in smart and digital services for recycling and recovery.
