Beyond this objective, the FabLab EcoDéchets remains a place open to the public like all the other FabLabs all over the world where it provides all kinds of machine tools for the design and production of objects, prototypes. In addition, there is support in setting up start-ups. It is a framework that makes prototyping and experimentation accessible and allows the proactivity of young people and women to be expressed. the latter will be able to provide above all environmental solutions and to create their own employment.

The training and workshops offered at the Fablab are an opportunity to meet in small groups around the same subject, to learn in a fun and friendly way.


Fablabs are workshops made up of computer-controlled machine tools that can quickly manufacture or modify goods of various kinds on demand (books, decorative objects, tools, etc.)


ased on the principle that a community can be made more creative and productive if it has access to technology, a FabLab offers the free sharing of spaces, machines, skills and knowledge. ​
