Renault Group Morocco entrusts Suez, for the fourth consecutive time, with the treatment and recovery of waste from its two factories in Morocco, Suez announced in a press release on Monday.
Suez thus consolidates its position as the “reference partner” of the car manufacturer and “leader” in the management of industrial waste in Morocco, underlines the press release. Historical industrial customer of Suez in Morocco, Renault Group Morocco has two factories in Tangier (Melloussa Free Zone) and in Casablanca (Somaca) with an overall production capacity of 440,000 vehicles per year, recalls the same source. The contract, renewed in June 2022, covers these two factories for an extendable period of 3 years and an average annual volume of 20,400 tonnes of waste, says Suez.
Thanks to the renewal of this contract, Suez Maroc will continue to ensure the overall management of the manufacturer’s industrial waste through the provision of human and material resources for the collection of waste (ordinary and hazardous), the management of operations relating to the park at waste (sorting, compacting, cafutage, packaging and storage) as well as recovery and treatment with authorized channels.
This new contract marks the success of the partnership that has linked the two companies in Morocco for 14 years, underlines Suez, noting that “together, the two groups will contribute to continuing the development of the circular economy in the country, in line with the objectives of the Kingdom’s Industrial Acceleration Plan for the period 2021-2023”. The scope of the new contract also includes the management of the wastewater treatment plant (STEP) located in the Somaca plant. The digitalized and complete management of the service as well as the ISO 14001 certification of the sites are also part of Suez’s commitments. In Morocco, Suez has been supporting Renault Group Morocco since 2008 in operational waste management, but also through engineering and environmental consulting services. Thus, in this new contract Suez has bet on innovative solutions allowing Renault Group Morocco to reduce the costs and carbon footprint of its activity, while improving the rate of waste recovery and performance. Finally, based on feedback from the Covid-19 pandemic, the new contract will allow Suez to adapt its organization and the means implemented according to changes in vehicle production.
Suez’s North Africa Managing Director, Benjamin Vauthier, said the decision “reflects Renault Group Morocco’s renewed confidence in the skills of Suez’s teams in Morocco.” “By extending its collaboration, Renault Group Morocco demonstrates Suez’s ability to offer its industrial customers innovative waste treatment services to recover their materials throughout their life cycle,” he said. in the press release. A major player in environmental services for more than 160 years, Suez supports local authorities and manufacturers every day in the management of essential services such as water, waste and air.
