Laurent Mogno, chairman of the ECT Group, spoke to Catherine Bernard of Le Journal du Grand Paris..
Laurent Mogno re-examined the definition of “inert soil”, and the concept of “la valorisation des terres” or upcycling soil. He started with a reminder that re-using excavated soil provides an opportunity for development in the regions, and for biodiversity. It was the soil from ‘The Hole’ at the Halles de Paris that went to make the landforms in the park at La Courneuve. And this park is classified as a Natura 2000 site.
During this interview, Laurent Mogno explained how the ECT company deals with soil from works on Grand Paris Express sites, and in particular the soil from the tunnel-boring machines. And how 100% of the soil from the GPE that is entrusted to ECT becomes part of the creation of land-use developments – whatever regulatory framework resulted in authorisation to re-use these soils.
