    Background: The chief characteristic of a processing plant recently inaugurated by French Energy Minister Edmond Herve is its non-pollutant property. Built as a prototype in the Southern Paris region of Essone, the Varennes-Jarcy recycling plant can annually transform 40,000 tonnes of household refuse into small cylindrical sticks used as coal substitute. Pre-selected components such as paper , fabric, cardboard and plastic are crushed into granules known as 'Combusoc' for their heating properties, with half the calorific value of coal. Combusoc, which costs 20 per cent less than its conventional counterpart, already provides cheap heating to the local Emile Roux hospital.
