Cleaner Production Audit training program
Cleaner Production Audit is an auditing system designed to encourage cleaner production, improve technical efficiency and reduce material consumption thereby improving energy efficiency, reducing life-cycle costs and fundamentally reducing the environmental impact of any business or industry.
The outcome of the audit is a strategic plan for reducing poisonous and harmful compounds, reducing material consumption and energy demand and ultimately reducing the generation of waste.
Early processes in Sustainable Urban Development
Sustainability issues have been a natural part of urban development in Sweden for a long time. Not only when it comes to new technology but also in areas such as urban governance, urban strategies, urban resource management and urban planning & design. In Southern Sweden we have worked successfully with early processes in order to obtain as sustainable urban development as possible. To make this experience available GreenTech Visits have four offers for municipalities that are planning to build new sustainable areas within in the city.
Energy symbiosis – Händelö
On the small island of Händelö, a part of the city of Norrköping in East Sweden there is a remarkable energy symbiosis where a waste incineration plant sends steam to fuel a grain based ethanol production plant from where the residuals go back to the agricultural sector as fodder. The ethanol plant also sends some of its residuals to the adjacent biogas production plant that otherwise mainly uses biodegradable waste from the surrounding region to produce bio-methane to fuel both private and public vehicles with the worlds most environmentally friendly vehicle fuel

The world’s premier research and innovation environment in Lund
MAX IV, a world-class giant microscope, will be completed in 2015, and ESS, the globe’s most powerful neutron source, will begin construction in 2014. These research laboratories will make it possible for scientists to study in-depth the building blocks of different materials. Together, the investments for these research facilities are equal to those for the Öresund Bridge.
