FundWCP IMPACT DEV#1
Founded in 2011 by Laurent Laye, who has since been joined by his three children, the group offers its construction industry customers alternative materials to build responsibly and sustainably through three complementary activities: reception and recovery of materials resulting from deconstruction (roadworks and earthworks, mostly inert and polluted soil) with Eco Valorisation; production and sales of conventional and low-carbon ready-mixed concrete with Eco Béton; and production and sales of recycled concrete blocks designed for modular and quick construction with Eco Bloc.
The group has around 85 employees divided between a site in the port of Gennevilliers on the Seine near Paris, a site in Nogent-le-Phaye near Chartres and a mobile site.
It aims to open a second site in Gennevilliers in order to raise its capacity to treat and extract raw materials from polluted soil, thus reducing the volumes of waste sent to landfill, with the recovered aggregates to be used by Eco Béton to produce low-carbon concrete.
Making a difference
The decarbonization of the building sector is key to meeting goals for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. With the opening of its second site in Gennevilliers, Eco Valorisation is offering a solution to address the sector’s challenges by increasing the proportion of low-carbon concrete used and by raising its own capacity to receive and recover materials from construction site waste near Paris, in order to meet the targets laid down by the recent French law on the energy transition for green growth.
