The SuperNEMO demonstrator is located in the Laboratoire Souterrain de Modane (France) and searches for neutrinoless double beta decay of $^{82}$Se. Its detection technique, based on tracking and calorimeter measurements, allows the reconstruction of the full kinematics of detected particles, including individual energies and emission angle, resulting in a strong reduction of the background and the possibility to disentangle different 0$\nu\beta\beta$ decay mechanisms. The goal of the demonstrator is to validate the technique and to reach a sensitivity on the 0$\nu\beta\beta$ decay half-life of about T$^{0\nu}_{1/2} >$ 6$\times$10$^{24}$ yr with “zero background” in the region of interest.
