– Crisalid: an innovative collaborative demonstrator pilot site for better rehabilitation of contaminated sites


The project CRISALID – Center of Reflection ISérois in Sustainable Preliminary Development – is the joint response of a public developer EPFL of Dauphiné and ENVISOL to answer the needs identified by the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes Region to facilitate the requalification of wastelands contaminated.
CRISALID brings together an ecosystem of start-ups and innovative SMEs working on the brownfield theme and allows them to develop their innovations. This approach makes it possible to share the specific skills of the members of the group, but also to pool technical means: analytical means, pilot tests, digital tools, modeling software, measurement equipment … This nomadic demonstrator of innovative solutions allows to:
– Develop contamination characterization and remediation tools to increase efficiency and accuracy
– Acquire a transferable know-how of fallow wastelands
– Create a unique methodology dedicated to rehabilitation projects
