Working with ECOCEA makes TERREAL's Chagny plant the first tileworks in the world to use biomethane (refined biogas produced from household waste) to fire its tiles, cutting its natural gas consumption by around a third.

Thanks to this project to use biomethane from SMET 71's ECOCEA plant at Chagny, TERREAL was the winner of one of three Circular Economy Awards at the 6th Burgundy Economic Forum, held by the Saône-et-Loire branch of the MEDEF employers' federation on 20 November 2014.


SMET 71's ECOCEA plant in Chagny, in the département of Saône-et-Loire, produces renewable gas (biomethane) from the treatment of household waste and injects it into the gas supply grid operated by GRTgaz. The biomethane is then piped to TERREAL's Chagny plant, where it is used in the production of terracotta roofing tiles.
