When building new plants, CNIM is able to offer its clients the benefit of over 50 years of operating expertise. Since 1969, CNIM has acquired experience in operating waste recovery centers (material, organic and energy) and in producing energy from biomass. This activity is carried out on behalf of local authorities (inter-municipal associations, cities, departments, regions) or private contractors.
Operating a waste recovery plant requires know-how that guarantees the availability of the facilities, their level of productivity and their longevity. CNIM improves the energy efficiency of the sites it operates and helps to reduce the environmental impact of waste-to-energy conversion and biomass power plants. The experience gained from the manufacturing process is meanwhile fed back into the design and development phases, and leads to technological innovation. By the same token, the work of CNIM’s designers and development engineers also benefits from the practical experience shared by our plant operating and maintenance teams.
The plants are categorized in France as Installations Classées pour la Protection de l’Environnement (Installations Classified for Environmental Protection), with a particular feature being that most of them operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – given that the reception of waste is never-ending. Providing this continuity is all part of a site’s public service mission.
The operator provides full plant oversight and monitoring services, notably deploying management systems in the fields of Quality (ISO 9001), Health and Safety (ISO 45001) and the Environment (ISO 14001 and 50001).
