From the decision to dismantle an industrial site through to its transformation into rehabilitated land or a new business site, resource management is central to the profitability of any reconversion project. The intended future use of the site dictates the deconstruction and decontamination process. SUEZ provides a reconversion strategy based on comprehensive needs analysis as part of a holistic vision to maximise asset value whilst protecting health, safety and the environment.

Deconstructing and depolluting sites for reconversion
After a thorough diagnosis phase, SUEZ deconstructs and decontaminates end-of-life industrial sites in preparation for their reconversion. To ensure operational efficiency, SUEZ considers the site within its ecosystem and analyses its future to conduct an appropriate deconstruction and decontamination process.
The aim is to achieve optimum levels of recovery and reuse. From treating contaminated soil to waste treatment, SUEZ maximises recycling and recovery of large volumes to re-use as much of the resource as possible safely and without harming the environment.
