Circular inspiration: Lyon Regenerating industrial ground to produce fertile ground
Faced with a large industrial area, with unused land that was previously sites for the chemical indsutry, Lyon Métropole launched two calls to redevelop the area. In 2016, the second edition of the call tested different processes to clean up contaminated soil, produce biomass and create fertile ground. Read about how Lyon metropole achieved circular success through a public-private partnership and find out what lessons this initiative brought home.
David Kimelfeld, former vice-president for economic development of Lyon Métropole, said: “These investments show the industrial dynamic that is underway in the Chemistry Valley. By implementing new activities compatible with the technological risk prevention plan as productive landscape, the call for projects ‘Appel des 30’ is truly innovative.”
