French term or phrase: valorisation matiere; filiere de valorisation
I know "valorisation des dechets" is waste reclamation, but what is "valorisation matiere" in the following:
"Etude economique de la valorisation matiere de certains dechets dangereux et non dangereux."
Also, what is "filiere de valorisation"? (reclamation method, sector?): "determination d'une methodologie d'approche des filieres de valorisation. Au travers cette etude, il a ete determine le gisement d'un groupe de dechets et les capacites techniques et economiques d'une filiere de valorisation de dechets dangereux et non dangereux." Thanks!

Thanks for your help. I did find "material recovery" when searching the Web. However, I think "filiere de valorisation" refers to "recovery procedure" as the other person suggested; it makes more sense in the context. So thanks to the other person who answered, too! Karen
