The ECT centre for biological treatment of soil polluted with hydrocarbons continues to grow. Entirely enclosed, it is the first of its kind in France.
It is located at La Courneuve (93, the Seine-Saint-Denis département) and it is essentially a local facility :
- More than 99% of the soils that go there are from adjoining départements.
- 53% of them are from construction sites in Seine-Saint-Denis itself.
Excellent highway access (including the A1 and the A86) help keep down mileage between the site where the soil is excavated and the treatment site.
