Successful remediation and sustainable redevelopment of the Metaleurop site

The closure of the Metaleurop Nord plant in France's Pas-de-Calais left behind one of the most heavily-polluted sites in Europe. Through SUEZ know-how in decontamination and waste management, the project moved to another level with the installation of environmental activities on the redeveloped site.
