A French waste management company is looking in selected EU countries for buyers of the processed recycled bio and non-bio raw materials in Europe.

Summary: The French startup intends to collect, sort and recycle the waste of professionals in Corsica.As bio-waste is managed on the platform, the company is looking for buyers of recycled raw materials (paper, plastic, glass, iron and aluminium). These materials may be processed by the startup (crushed, pulverized..) according to the buyers' specifications. They are looking for commercial agency or distribution services agreements related to Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Spain and Germany. Description Description: 

As in most parts of the world, recycling and waste treatment are now priority issues. In Corsica, the region of France where this startup comes from, the situation has become a very big topic of discussion in recent years. Indeed, being an island welcoming a large mass of tourists, the waste situation is critical and Corsica is in agony. Its two landfill sites are at saturation point and several plans have since appeared, such as the transport of raw waste to France for example. Proposals that do not satisfy everyone because they displace the problem without solving it. This is why the startup was born and will start its activities in January 2021. It intends to focus on the collection of waste from professionals by managing 5 streams separately:
- Paper / Cardboard
- Plastic
- Glass
- Metals
- Bio-waste.

Plastic cans and bottles will be refundable. Bio-waste will be treated on an experimental composting platform according to the Bokashi principle:
- Amendment NFU 42-001 and Fertilizer NF U 44-051.
- Hygienisation by micro-organisms
- Health regulations for SPAn C3 (CE n°1069/2009)
The startup is therefore looking for buyers for recycled raw materials (paper and cardboard, plastic, glass, iron and aluminium) that are not processed by themselves. These materials may be processed (crushed, ground, pulverised, etc.) according to the buyers' specifications. They are also looking for purchasers of fertilisers or standardised soil improvers resulting from the treatment of food waste using the Bokashi principle. As this offer is a search for customers, this partnership will be in the framework of distribution services or commercial agency agreements.
