Project stakes The City of Paris is committed to transforming its economy towards a circular model. It has gathered 65 proposals for action in its Livre Blanc de l’économie circulaire du Grand Paris (White Paper on the Circular Economy of Greater Paris), which served as the basis for the development of its 2017-2020 Circular Economy Plan adopted by the Paris Council in July 2017. Two indicators were defined by the City during the preparation of this plan: the rate of reduction of import and export flows and the rate of increase in material and organic recovery.
The objective of CitéSource’s mission is to assist the City of Paris in carrying out an material flows analysis and construction materials stocks estimation. This analysis is intended to inform the indicators of the City’s Circular Economy Plan and to develop and update the data for the general public presented on the City’s infographic site, Urban Metabolism of Paris (link to the site).
The excavated soils and minerals extracted from the building sites, constitute the 1st important C&D waste. These materials are useful resources for construction and urban development projects. This study aims to identify the potential use of excavated materials or eco-materials resulting from the work of the Société du Grand Paris on urban projects of Plaine Commune (one of the local governments of the Greater Paris Metropolis).
