Blockchain for waste traceability


Numerous and complex legislative and regulatory provisions governing waste


Different information systems are disjointed and management software is not interoperable.


Excessive constraints can lead to illegal dumping


Regulatory documents, such as waste tracking slips (Bordereaux de Suivi des Déchets - BSD) and waste registers for construction sites, represent a major administrative burden and can be erroneous or falsified.


Tracing waste flows on the basis of BSDs alone is technically difficult.

Waste traceability for the building industry


The construction sector is the first to be required to trace waste products


Building sites (construction, demolition, renovation) produce 46 million tonnes of waste per year, out of a total of 224 million tonnes of construction waste (including public works).


Waste producers must be able to prove that their waste has been properly managed.

The government's obligation to contribute to this traceability and generate waste tracking slips (Bordereaux de Suivi des Déchets - BSD) applies to the entire sector.


Waste producers, waste collectors, transporters, recycling companies


650,000 construction companies are concerned, and 10,000 in waste collection and treatment.


The waste collection and treatment sector represents a turnover of 20 billion Euros, and is constantly growing.
