  • HSB Living Lab – Shaping the Housing of Tomorrow

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    How do we live in the future? HSB Living Lab is a research and demonstration arena, consisting of actual homes for students and guest researchers. This exciting project innovates on site, enhancing the sustainability and quality of present and future homes and buildings.

    The building was completed in June 2016 on the Chalmers Technical University campus and the first students moved in in September. Knowledge is now built about their daily living and working, forming the basis for innovative solutions supporting a greener lifestyle.

  • Innovative Use of Heat-Pumps and Solar Panels

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    The housing company Karlskronahem has eliminated oil from its heating systems by installing a number of different types of heat-pumps in innovative ways. One installation involves the installation of air-to-water heat pumps in the attic of apartment buildings that supply heat down to an external temperature of five degrees. The air in the ventilation is recycled through the system for heat recovery. The company has also installed solar panels for electricity production in order to become more self sufficient in terms of energy.

  • Intelligent Heating Systems

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    The public swimming pool in the municipality of Eslöv provides a perfect show-case of the intelligent heating systems developed by Eco Science. The system consists of the multi-layered accumulator tank and the intelligent control system that facilitates the integration of a number of heat sources, such as solar heating, a pellet burner, or other sources.

  • Involving Doctors and Nurses to Achieve Energy Efficiency

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Cross-sectoral enabler:

    The approach to energy improvements also involves health care professionals in activities to reduce the use of electricity. In a sequence of projects beginning in 2006, efforts have been made to involve health care professionals in this work. One of the projects involved saving energy by installing motion detectors to control lighting in different spaces.

  • Järven Ecotech

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Järven Ecotech designs and installs complete treatment plants for purifying and collecting surface/storm water, leachate, industrial water and sewerage water. For example, Järven Ecotech’s totally unique floating walls/baffles can replace conventional surface/storm water purification solutions on the market, such as dug/excavated surface water basins, sedimentation tanks and filtering solutions.

  • 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.

  • Low operating costs - the ice arena heats the swimming pool in Oskarshamn Arena

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Arena Oskarshamn consists of an ice rink, gym and office space, swimming pool, leisure pool, café facilities and an outdoor artificial frozen bandy rink that in summertime is the football field with artificial turf. The fact that everything is located in the same place means that the condenser heat from chillers for the ice rink and bandy rink can be used to heat the entire facility – the pool water in the three basins, air, and almost all tap water - in hockey and bandy season.

  • 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.

  • Mora Recycling Centre

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    A world class recycle centre where the households can leave their bulky waste, garden waste, electronic waste and hazardous waste. It is also possible to hand in items for reuse.
