TROGNON: a regional project encouraging a virtuous circle of bio-waste

"I am delighted to have won this award and received support from regional actors involved in energy transition. In France, organic waste represents one third of traditional waste. Trognon is an environmental, social but also solidarity project that intends to show the full potential of organic waste. ”
Clément Bleuet, Student & Project leader for the TROGNON project

‘Innovating for energy transition in rural areas’ was the ambition of the first edition of this student competition launched in September 2019 by Teréga, Crédit Agricole Pyrénées Gascogne (CAPG) and Compagnie d’Aménagement des Coteaux de Gascogne (CACG).
The organic waste recovery approach proposed by the Trognon project stood out from the two other promising finalist projects, Hydé and Ampère. Last February, the three winners received a grant of €1,000 and 6 months of support for the implementation of their respective projects.
