EVS, the waste management body of the German federal state Saarland and the French organisation Sydeme signed a cooperation agreement on Monday. The two organisations reported that Sydeme, which is responsible for municipal waste management in the Moselle département and the north of the Alsace region, will supply up to 70,000 tonnes of residual waste a year to the waste incineration plant run by EVS in Neunkirchen. EVS will send up to 15,000 tonnes of biowaste to be treated in Sydeme's new biogas plant in Morsbach. The transboundary cooperation agreement runs until the end of 2016. EVS management director Karl Heinz Ecker hopes that it will serve as basis for further joint projects with the neighbouring French region.
