  • Alelyckan – Pioneering Recycling Park

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Alelyckan Recycling Park was developed as a pioneering facility, where objects perceived as waste are received, repaired, processed and sold on site. Recycling and sorting hall
    Alelyckan Recycling Park has a covered sorting hall where trained staff will help sort your material. Items that can be reused will be set aside and taken to one of the shops in the Recycling Park. Once sorting is finished, you drive on to the recycling centre and dispose of your material in the designated places.

  • Algae pilot

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    This Algae pilot is the first of its kind in Sweden. The algae convert unwanted substances to utilities. The goal is that algae cultivation will reduce our emissions of carbon dioxide and purify waste water to minimize over-fertilization of our waters and at the same time produce an energy-rich algae mass that is raw material for biodiesel (algae with high fatty acid content), animal feed (protein-rich algae) etc.

  • Aquifer Heating and Cooling

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    The heating and cooling system of the hospital in Kristianstad uses energy from an aquifer in order to heat the hospital in winter and cool it in summer. This is a unique clean energy solution that uses “free energy” in a creative way. The solution was developed by Region Skåne in cooperation with the company Malmberg Water.

  • Artificial wetlands in Trosa

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Since 2003 the waste water from the town of Trosa (about 4500 citizens) has been treated in artificial wetlands, after the basic treatment in the sewage plant. Thanks to the wetlands the Trosa river and the town bay have been spared from eutrophicating substances (plant nutrients) as well as contagious substances (pathogenes). Besides the value of purifying the water, the wetlands are a popular recreation area. The wetlands are used for education and many study visits are made here.

  • Bioendev - The Biocoal Company

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Developer and supplier of high-tech systems for cost efficient pre-treatment of biomass for use in heat and power generation, conversion to liquid fuels and production of green chemicals. Based on over ten years of research, BioEndev has developed an innovative torrefaction technology for production of black pellets. With over 10 patents we have a unique technology with high process control and availability. Black pellets resembles fossile coal in many ways but is renewable and carbon neutral. Black pellets are hydrophobic and has up to 50% higher energy density compared to white pellets.

  • Biogas plant Tuvan, Skellefteå

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    The municipalty of Skellefteå collect waste from homes and workplaces and produces there own biogasfuell for use in the municipality cars and in the public buses. The Biogas plant turns organic waste into biogas. Food bio waste from homes and workplaces is selected and placed in the brown waste container so that it can be taken to the biogas plant. The fuel that comes from this plant is used in the municipality cars and in the public buses, but it can also be bought by anyone whose car can take such fuel.

  • Bio-heat gives steam to Nynäs refinery

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    In a unique project, Fortum provides Nynas AB refinery in Nynäshamn with process steam, coming from the biofuel-powered cogeneration plant. In return, Fortum is given access to the surplus heat from the refinery, which they will use to heat Nynäshamn’s municipality. This project will result in reduced emissions of carbon dioxide, with nearly 100 000 t / year.

  • Boat-washer in Trosa Marina

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    In Trosa Marina there is a boat-washer, which scrubs off the fouling on boat hulls. Thanks to the boat-washer, the boat-owners do not have to use environmentally-hazardous anti fouling paints anymore.

  • Bålsta extracts waste heat

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    The district heating plant in Bålsta supplies Håbo municipality with environmentally-friendly heat and hot water. The plant consists of three boilers: a wood chip boiler, a pellet boiler and an oil-fired boiler, which together represent 80% of the plants total energy production. The remaining 20% are taken from a adjucent gypsum factory, whose waste heat is led to the boiler through pipes.

  • Campus Lindholmen - a Development Centre for Optimised Waste Collection

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    At Campus Lindholmen, low-speed electric vehicles combine with specially designed trucks to collect sorted waste and distribute goods to a variety of recipients. The result is an 80–90 percent reduction in heavy-vehicle traffic. Campus Lindholmen in Gothenburg covers an area of less than 10 hectares (one-tenth of a square kilometre) but is a vital hub for developing sustainable waste collection and goods distribution and reducing heavy-vehicle traffic.
