The project consists of the construction and operation of a large-scale waste to energy plant with a nominal capacity of 350 000 tons per year replacing an old plant. The plant will co-generate electricity and heat. The facility will be located on the Ivry-Paris XIII site, adjacent to the old plant.
The project will implement modern and innovative treatment facilities for residual municipal solid waste including an efficient recovery of energy. The project is expected to further contribute towards achieving the objectives of the EU Circular Economy Package which govern the waste management sector in Member States.

By virtue of their technical characteristics, the main project components are all subject to a mandatory Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) including public consultations. A planning application for the waste to energy plant has been submitted by the promoter to the competent Authorities. Their recommendations have to be considered prior the final decision. The main project components are likely to fall under Annex II of the EIA Directive, the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) (2001/42/EC), EIA (2014/52/EU) amending 2011/92/EU, the Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC) and the Birds Directive (2009/147/EC). The full environmental details will however be further examined during the appraisal.
The Bank will require the Promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project will be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Directives 2014/23/EU, 2014/24/EU or 2014/25/EU, where applicable, as well as Directives 92/13/EEC and 89/665/EEC) as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the EU, with the publication of tender notices in the Official Journal of the EU, as and where required.
