The BRGM and SUEZ Enter the Next Phase in their Jointed Scientific Research

On 27 June 2019, the BRGM (the French geological and mining research office) and SUEZ signed a framework partnership agreement. This 3-year agreement aims to strengthen the Group’s scientific and industrial cooperation with the BRGM in the fields of water and the environment.

This framework agreement aims to strengthen the partnerships between the BRGM and SUEZ by building on the close scientific and industrial fit between the partners in the following fields:

  1. Groundwater resources ( quantity, quality, management, big data)
  2. Nanomaterials and nanoparticles for water treatment
  3. Metrology (measurement systems)
  4. Emerging pollutants
  5. Geothermal energy, energy storage
  6. Polluted soils and sediments, refunctionalization
  7. Remediation of mining sites (Peru, Chile, Europe, etc.)
  8. Mining environments.

The agreement lays down the general framework in which the partners intend to cooperate (non-disclosure, intellectual property, themes) and also aims to secure the long-term future of the Group’s partnerships and to maximize the potential for the development of their activities.
