The Local Public Company UniTri, which is leading the interregional sorting center project, has laid the first stone of its future installation in Loublande-La Tessoualle, in Deux-Sèvres. Supported by 13 communities, the project consists of the construction of a site which will ensure the sorting of waste from a population area of more than a million inhabitants in 5 departments (Deux-Sèvres, Maine-et-Loire, Vendée, Loire-Atlantique and Vienne). The center will ultimately receive nearly 48,000 tonnes of recyclable waste each year, which will be sorted before being sent to recycling channels. The design, construction and operation of the site were entrusted to a group of companies made up of Brangeon Environnement, a subsidiary of the Angevin Brangeon group (€235 million in 2022 turnover, 1,400 employees), of the Mayenne group Séché Environnement (895 .3 M€ turnover in 2022), Hofmann, EGDC, Setec and Triade. The project, which represents an investment of 36.2 million euros, was launched in June 2023 and will last until the end of 2024. 70 jobs will be created on the site. Around forty of them will be open to professional integration.
