Using bioenergy in your every-day life

Biogas

In Sweden biogas is produced from municipal sludge and other biological waste. Biogas is produced by municipal utilities companies and by farmers at farm-size production units. Some biogas is up-graded to vehicle gas, while a large portion is burned in CHP-plants to produce heat and power.

Brownfield Regeneration

Brownfield development areas are the preferred alternatives for new housing projects. In many municipalities industrial sites have been vacated in the past decades. In order to use these estates for new housing projects the ground needs to be remediated before construction.

Circular economy

Circular economy is all about a framework for an economy that is restorative and regenerative by design. Unlike in todays linear economy, in a circular economy we see everything as a resource for something else – waste doesn’t exist. How do business models need to change to suit a circular economy? What does this new way of thinking mean for the business community? How can profitable business models be combined with social and environmental responsibility? How can we design products right from the beginning, and do things even better, instead of just less bad?

Energy

Perhaps the world’s greatest challenge is to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, mainly fossil carbon dioxide. Several exciting and new innovative ways to replace fossil energy are under development in the area, such as the Algae pilot and Bioendev.

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

Green Housing in Malmo

Southern Sweden abounds with examples of green architecture and solutions that combine a number of green technologies in order to provide sustainable living environments. In and around Malmö there are examples of areas where solar cells and wind power combine to provide electricity for a large part of the needs, heat pumps produce heat, and rain water is taken care of in environmentally friendly run-off systems, and where the roofs of buildings are used to grow plants that produce oxygen, slow down run-off of rain water, and maintain a healthy and pleasant environment in the area.
