The Solution

The Alchimistes propose an all-in solution, for businesses and citizens, in order to collect and locally recycle bio-waste into compost.

It offers three folds solutions with first the training of staff and people to improve biowaste sorting at the source, second a biowaste collection ensuring a full traceability of all the material being collected, and third a local composting, avoiding long transport and favoring soil enrichment.

Case Study

Westfield Malls: Les Alchimistes collects 5 on the 21 Westfields malls in France (Les 4 temps, Confluence, …), service for around 100 millions people per year and 200 restaurants. Westfield wanted a high quality of service, doing something interesting with the biowaste.
