Innovative Use of Heat-Pumps and Solar Panels
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.

Lantmännen Agroetanol – Ethanol factory
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.
