A VISION OF FUTURE,
INDUSTRIAL ECOLOGY
The energetic and environmental efficiency is one of this century’s
major challenges
The industrial ecology project ECHO, developed in collaboration with
the city and the canton of the Valais, will allow:
• Rationalizing energy consumption, transportation, waste management
• Developing industrial synergies allowing the valorisation of residual energy and waste
• Coordinating certain services and/or tools of production (purchases,
transportation, cafeteria, etc.) to rationalize expenses
Results in terms of:
+ productivity
+ innovation thanks to more intensive contacts between the different
+ industries (partnerships, symbioses)
+ visibility by participating to an innovative and responsible project, from
economic and ecologic points of view
- waste and expelled CO2
- production costs and taxes

Déchets pour les uns,
matières pour les autres
DÉVELOPPEMENT DURABLE Sierre Cité de l’énergie veut
promouvoir l’écologie industrielle. Il s’agit de transformer les déchets
des entreprises voisines en productions propres.
PASCAL CLAIVAZ
Daval prototype
A Sierre, on songe immédiatement à la zone industrielle (ZI) des
Iles Falcon. Le président de la ville
dirige également l’Association valaisanne des entrepreneurs. Il voit plus
loin: «Nous pourrions présenter la
nouvelle ZI de Daval comme un prototype d’écologie industrielle. Ce qui
serait un atout.» Prototype, le mot
est lâché. Sierre, Cité de l’énergie, se
devait de marquer le coup en Valais.
La base de l’écologie industrielle
est simple: les déchets des uns peuvent devenir les matières premières
des autres. Les échanges de flux
énergétiques peuvent également se
révéler d’une certaine importance.
C’est le bureau SOFIES de Genève qui prendra la direction des
opérations. Le questionnaire qu’il a
envoyé aux entreprises concerne
notamment les produits fabriqués,
les activités soumises à des dispostions réglementaires particulières,
les systèmes existants de management environnemental, le tri et la
valorisation des déchets, les priorités consommation d’énergie, la mobilité durable, les systèmes de management environnementaux. On
questionne également sur l’approvisionnement en eau et en énergie et
sur la récupération des matières et
de l’eau.
De la sciure au carrelage
Premier inventaire du potentiel
de la ville de Sierre: une tannerie,
une entreprise de traitement des
métaux, Vallait, des menuiseries,
l’UTO, des entreprises de chauffage,
sans oublier les grandes industries
comme Alcan et Novelis.
Comment cela se passera-t-il
concrètement? Un exemple existe,

Sierre nourrit un projet de synergies
industrielles sur le modèle de Genève (voir l’encadré). La commune
vient d’envoyer un questionnaire à
toutes les entreprises de son territoire. Selon la communication, l’objectif est une «gestion des ressources
et des déchets plus économiques et
plus respectueuse de l’environnement.» Cela s’appelle l’écologie industrielle. «Elle permettra de mieux
nous positionner», confirme le nouveau président François Genoud.
En ligne de mire, il y a notamment le
projet Axpo-Compogaz qui se cherche un site d’implantation. Il s’agit
de produire du carburant biogaz à
partir de déchets forestiers, agricoles et ménagers. Les deux concurrents principaux sont Sierre et Vétroz.

de déchets
le bureau SOFIES. Nous en avons reproduit le schéma ci-contre. Le
sous-réseau le plus frappant est celui de la fabrication de céramiques
(le carrelage notamment). Les matières premières peuvent venir aussi
bien des sciures de l’industrie du
bois que des huiles minérales des industries électroniques, de la production de machines ou des garages
automobiles. D’autres matériaux récupérés sont les déchets inertes de
la construction ou les pigments des
imprimeries.
En plus de ces transformations
de déchets en nouvelles matières
premières, les entreprises s’échangent des flux d’énergie et d’eau, augmentées par la mise en réseau.

Tout s’échange, sans tabous
SOFIES S.àr.l. est un bureau
spécialisé dans l’écologie industrielle et basé à Genève. Le
schéma que nous produisons cicontre met en perspective huit
années de mises en réseau d’entreprises de type différents sur le
territoire genevois. Il s’agit pour
elles d’éviter le gaspillage autant
au niveau des déchets qu’au niveau de la production énergétique. En 2008, le projet concernait 31 entreprises, 11 secteurs,
800 flux et 17 symbioses potentielles. Les 11 secteurs sont les
services, l’épuration des eaux,
les garages automobiles, la recherche pharmaceutique, la
construction, la fabrication de
biens, l’horlogerie, les machines
et équipements, l’industrie chimique, l’édition et l’agro-alimentaire. Le projet cherche également à créer un réseau entre l’industrie électronique, l’agro-alimentaire, la zone agricole et d’autres partenaires potentiels. Cela
peut concerner des échanges
d’eaux à 40 degrés, à 20 degrés,
des échanges de chaleur, d’électricité, de lactosérum, de déchets
agricoles ou de biogaz. PC
