IMT Atlantique uses the services of Chimirec for the collection and treatment of hazardous industrial waste (HIW). This waste (acids, aerosols, used oils, solvents, soiled glassware, etc.) is directed to platforms to be weighed, analysed, grouped and prepared. They are then sent to approved treatment facilities. In order to better protect the environment, the CHIMIREC Group has developed 10 treatment channels using material or energy recovery processes.
IMT Atlantique has a plastic waste policy.
