Danone reduces costs by recycling packaging waste

Veolia has significantly improved Danone's waste-recycling capabilities through a tailored solution for soiled packaging.

Improving waste recovery

Danone makes around 60 different dairy products on eight packaging lines at its site in Molay-Littry, including Taillefine, Danette and Fjord. This creates a wide range of packaging that complicates waste recovery and recycling processes.

Lower treatment costs

Veolia implemented an on-site packaging removal system for non-compliant products to recover organic waste and soiled polystyrene packaging. In three years, the overall waste recovery rate rose from 70% to 98%. Measures have also significantly lowered treatment costs and reduced the site's carbon footprint.
