Underground waste transportation system for residual waste, paper and food waste

The high-tech waste sorting and transportation system in Hammarby Sjöstad eco-city in Sweden reduces the need for waste trucks to enter the city while increasing the efficiency of waste separating. An innovative vacuum suction system transports waste fractions to the city perimeter via a series of underground tunnels. 

Smart delivery of cost efficient hydrogen - SPERA

Chiyoda Corporation, an engineering company in Japan, proposed the global hydrogen supply chain concept by liquid organic hydrogen carrier with Toluene /Methylcyclohexane system. In this method, hydrogen is fixed to toluene with the hydrogenation reaction and converted into SPERA Hydrogen, which can be transported by chemical tanker at the normal atmospheric temperature.

Reduced use of fossil fuels in the shipping industry by the introduction of sky sails

A new kind of eco-design for a power system using wind power enables the shipping industry to save energy by reducing the use of fossil fuel. Using flying kites connected to an electric power generator can produce cheaper and vastly more energy than conventional power plants.

Innovative noise barriers in urban development; a novel application for solar panels

The Noisun project is an effort to reduce noise from road and rail traffic in the city center of Lerum in Sweden, including demonstrating the use of solar panels as noise barriers. Integrating solar collectors in noise barriers decreases noise levels, whilst providing solar energy for the local district heating network.

Reduce the energy consumption in Supermarket refrigeration systems

As the share of chilled foods on the European market increases, the Swedish company ENRAD has developed a new technique to reduce the energy consumption from supermarket refrigeration. The new system offers an opportunity for supermarkets to reduce their climate impact while lowering costs.

24/7 heating and cooling from highly efficient solar collectors

Climatewell offers high efficiency solar energy solutions that also address the problem of the solar energy’s intermittency.

A wood plastic composite with up to 95% recycled materials

Construction waste presents a high potential for recovery but few solutions are available today. Addressing this challenge, a finish company relied on its innovative conical extrusion process to develop a multilayer extrusion profile made of Wood Plastic Composite (WPC). This WPC can contain up to 95% recycled materials including Construction & Demolition waste. 

Energy efficient skyscraper as an element of sustainable urban development

Called the world’s most energy efficient skyscraper at the time of its preparation, the Pearl City Tower has taken the novel approach of producing electricity for its own use from renewable energy sources. Many other characteristics of the building help to lower its energy consumption.
