Biogas plant Tuvan, Skellefteå

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. In the other side, the process generates fertilizer as a by-product that is further processed in the shape of pellets and used in gardening and agriculture. In this way we can reduce CO2 emissions, return to the soil a part of its components and reduce the waste management costs considerably as we are giving value to a fraction of waste that was before just incinerated.

Algae pilot

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.

Alsterbro Wastewater Treatment Plant

At Alsterbro sewage treatment plant, wastewater is purified in three steps. The first purification step consists of the mechanical removal of the coarse solids in the rotary screen. The next processing step is the biological treatment in biorotor. In the last purification step, chemical precipitation to remove phosphorous. The flocculant used is polyaluminiumhydroxiklorid.
Then, the treated water out of the Alsterån. Sludge from both the biological and chemical purification pumped into reed beds, where lush reeds contributes to the degradation of the sludge, among others. alia by reed plants favors oxygen supply down in the sludge.

Bioendev – The Biocoal Company

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. Apart from offering Commercial Scale torrefation units together with our EPC partner, Bioendev offers long-term offtake-contracts of Black Pellets in our Industrial Demonstration Plant in Holmsund, Sweden, which has a capacity of 16 000 tons/year. We also offer test batches of Black Pellets for industrial trials as well as tests of different raw materials.

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.
