Bio-heat gives steam to Nynäs refinery
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.
Cleaner air in Stockholm with sewage sludge
Two sewage treatment works in Stockholm are producing biogas from sewage sludge. After having purified the gas, it can be used for both heating and vehicle fuel and in addition creates no net emissions of carbon dioxide. Consequently, the treatment works have reduced their amount of emissions and become energy suppliers. Therefore, sewage sludge is no longer an environmental problem, but an important energy resource.

New combined heat and power plant in Solna
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.
