Recycling waste to reduce its impact on the environment
Fifty-two million tons of waste are treated every day on behalf of 50 million of France’s citizens. Veolia Recyclage & Valorisation des Déchets runs 637 treatment units that have been adapted to attain a recovery rate of up to 95%. Each office and regional branch was using its own data warehouse and repository. In this scenario, it was impossible to have a consolidated picture of France as a whole and to compare the regions.
Since 2010, Veolia’s waste recycling and recovery operations have relied on Talend to create a data warehouse whose purpose is to help management optimize decision-making. Everybody is responsible for their data. Talend Data Quality helped to “clean” the data at source. Finally, with Talend MDM, Veolia Recyclage et Valorisation des déchets has created a common repository of operational data for materials, equipment, sites and services. A total of 3,000 users from all of the departments are tracking indicators to measure the performance of recycling sites.
