Conferences and round tables: Researchers, developers, elected representatives and experts.
Site visit: To ECT's site for the management of excavated soil at Moissy-Cramayel (77)

1001 reasons to upcycle soil

Every year, in the region of Paris, public and private sector projects produce nearly 10 million cubic metres of inert soil, the equivalent of four Great Pyramids of Giza, a quantity that is a barometer of the sheer volume of public works currently happening in the Paris metropolitan area.

The conference "Soil in all its States" proposes to reveal the thousand and one ways in which inert soil can be upcycled or re-used with added value. It's a golden opportunity to shine a light on the principles of 'circular economy' and ecological mitigation that are at the heart of these often unsung activities.

Soil is an amazing resource !
A wide variety of solutions will be explored, ranging from remediation of polluted zones and the creation of planted parkland to the restoration of farmland, the transformation of soil into a construction material or topsoil, and the creation of works of art or works of urban engineering.
