Sanofi Signs Environmental Improvement Pact for Manufacturing
Sanofi and SUEZ environnement have signed an agreement aimed at optimizing the economic and environmental performance of Sanofi’s manufacturing sites in France and abroad, over a three-year period with the possibility of renewal. Under the agreement, SUEZ environnement will develop tailor-made solutions aimed at: improving the energy efficiency of Sanofi sites, by optimizing the operation of water and waste treatment systems and the sites’ waste-to-energy performance and conserving water resources, in particular by optimizing water management, treatment and recycling at production sites.
Two major projects have been started in France under this agreement. The first is focused on modernizing and increasing the capacity of the wastewater treatment station at the biochemicals site in Saint-Aubin-lÃ¨s-Elbeuf (Seine-Maritime), and the second is focused on building a waste-to-energy and volatile organic compound treatment unit for the chemicals site in Sisteron (Alpes-de-Haute-Provence).
