Waste-powered heating is now a reality in the European Metropolis of Lille

The European Metropolis of Lille has awarded Covalys, a joint venture co-owned by Veolia (65% via its subsidiary Valnor) and Idex (35%), the public service delegation contract to operate Antares, the metropolis’ energy recovery facility in the town of Halluin. 
The 12-year contract represents cumulated revenue of €295 million. It is a major step towards energy transition for the metropolis since the energy generated by the thermal treatment of household waste will supply two urban heating networks in Roubaix and Lille.
