During this webinar, we will have the opportunity to discover the results of three projects funded by the RRECQ. Please note that the presentation will be in French.

Revalorization of energy co-products in the Bécancour port area

Léo Lamy-Laliberté will present the research results of his project entitled “Analysis and optimization of networking and energy co-product recovery opportunities in the Bécancour industrial and port park”, carried out under the supervision of Jean-Marc Frayret. The aim of this project is to optimize the exchange network of an industrial ecosystem for the valorization of energy by-products. The results are promising in terms of the profitability and technical feasibility of these synergies, and show improvements in energy efficiency, greenhouse gas emissions and production.

Recycling and creative recovery of textile waste

Ennouri Triki will present the research results of his project entitled “Reduction and creative valorization of textile waste, social awareness and artistic practices”, carried out in collaboration with José Carlos Ferreira Junior and Marie-Anne Miljours. This project aims to accelerate the development of knowledge in life cycle assessment (LCA) and the transformation of textile waste into molded sculptures and works of art.

Exploration des leviers politiques et territoriaux pour le développement de stratégies de circularité

Juste Rajaonson will present the research findings of his project entitled “Circular cities and regions in Canada: an exploratory analysis of policy instruments and the territorial and politico-administrative conditions inherent in various circularity strategies”, conducted in collaboration with Fanny Tremblay-Racicot and Pénélope Regnier-Sakamoto. What are the processes, policies and instruments that enable cities and regions to design and deploy circular economy policies tailored to their spatial and socio-economic context?
