  • Laduvikens Waterparc

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    At Laduviken, 5 million Swedish kronor is invested in a water park, which will reduce the amount of pollutants entering the lake through storm water. The aim is, among other things, to reduce phosphorus by 25%.

  • Landfill gas is being extracted in Bro

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    The district heat plant in Bro produces environmentally friendly power. About ¾ of the installation's total heat production comes from landfill gas from Ragnsell landfill in Högbytorp. The remaining energy is produced by burning vegetable oil.

  • Lantmännen Agroetanol - Ethanol factory

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Ethanol can be produced from most raw ingredients that contain sugar or starch, which can in turn be broken down to sugar. In the Norrköping factory wheat, rye and barley are used as raw ingredients. Around 550,000 tonnes of grain are required to produce 210,000 m3 of ethanol. With a yield of 5.5 tonnes per hectare for wheat/triticale in Central Sweden, the factory's capacity is equivalent to a plantation of 100,000 hectares.

  • Malmö Airport

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Malmö Airport is part of Swedavia, the sustainable airport group that owns, operates and develops eleven airports across Sweden. Swedavia is an international role model today for developing airports with the least possible impact on the climate.

  • Myrsöns wetlands - cleaning verdure

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    An artificial wetland was built in the spring of 2006 next to the lake Myrsjön in Nacka. The aim is to use nature’s own mechanisms to clean the polluted storm water from an industrial area, before it runs into the lake Myrsjön.

  • New combined heat and power plant in Solna

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    The energy company Norrenergi has been commissioned to build a biofuel-fired district heat plant in northern Kymlinge. The installation will secure the supply of electricity and heat in growing areas within the municipalities of Solna and Sundbyberg. Furthermore, thanks to the plant, the municipalities can count with reduced emissions of carbon dioxide by 15 %, which is in line with the Parliament’s fixed objective for reduced emissions.

  • New environmentally-friendly CHP plant in Igelsta

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Söderenergi invests 250 million Euros in a bio fuel-fired combined heat and power plant (CHP) in Igelsta. The CHP will be able to supply energy to close on 100.000 dwellings, which makes Igelsta to one of the biggest biofuel-fired heat-electric power plants in the world.

  • New Strömkajen

    Type:

  • Organic model farm at Nynäs gård

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    At Nynäs gård, there is a biogas installation, which is designed for the farm's phosphorus needs. The farm does no longer need to purchase any chemical fertilizers, nor does it need to buy fuel for its vehicles.

  • Passive houses in Beckomberga

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    In the northern parts of Bromma, two so called ”passive-houses” are being built. Passive houses are particulary isolated, with an efficient heat recycling system and energy-efficient windows. They need 50% less energy compared to conventional multi-dwelling buildings.

  • Production of Liquid Biogas at Loudden

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    An installation for production of Liquid Biogas (LBG) is under construction at Loudden in Stockholm. This will be the first large-scale biogas installation in Stockholm, which produces biogas using organic waste.

  • Recycling Park, Kristianstad

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    The Kristianstad recycling park is one of the best examples of the Swedish system of waste management. The material and energy recycling rate is currently 97% and the goal is to reach 100% in the near future. By increasing the volume of material recycled, the amount of material deposited has been decreased by 40,000 tons. The facility was opened in 2001 and it then replaced a previous landfill site.

  • Reduction of Hospital Waste

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    The central hospital in Kristianstad has succeeded to substantially reduce its volumes of waste that is incinerated and has instead started to recycle increasing volumes of paper and plastics. One clinic that had a high rate of recycling at the beginning of the project increased the volume of recycled waste by 300 per cent. The project involved both increasing the volumes of waste that were sorted at the clinics and implementing a system for sorting sacks of waste for recycling and incineration in the hospital’s waste management system.

  • Restoration of overgrown meadows

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    At Svartsjöviken in Ekerö municipality, overgrown meadows have been restored. The grounds, which had a low sustainability, were restored with newly developed aphibious vehicles, light band wagons and stump cutting equipment. Today, the meadows are harvested, which has recreated a valuable biotop. At the same time, a long-term parntnership has been established between the municipality, the farmers, the local residents, landowners and various other associations.
