  • 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.

  • 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:

  • 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

  • Ringsjö Potable Water Plant, Stehag

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective: 
    Technology:

The plant regularly delivers 1,600 litres of water per second to 16 different municipalities in the Skåne Region with a maximum capacity of 2,400. The plant itself was opened in 1963 and completely rebuilt between 1994 and 1997, when a new lamella sedimentation basin was added. The process combines lamella sedimentation with a sequence of filters before the final step of pH adjustment with lime water takes place.
