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
