Through their respective subsidiaries SEDE Environnement and Agrosolutions, Veolia and InVivo have been working together for 3 years. The two groups work in particular on diagnosing the risks of agricultural pollution and on implementing action plans in several drinking water catchment areas in the north of France.
As part of this new partnership, Veolia and InVivo could jointly develop a viticulture irrigation project using treated wastewater.
"This partnership demonstrates that the world of agriculture is looking to the future. The circular economy is an essential part of producing more and better and thus meeting the societal and environmental expectations of consumers while enhancing the income of our farmers," said Thierry Blandinières, CEO of the InVivo Group.
"This agreement contributes to the development of "another", cleaner and more sober economy, an economy that preserves nature while also using it. It demonstrates the ability of the world of agriculture to expand its field of action and innovate," added Antoine Frérot, Chairman and CEO of Veolia.
