BEST RECY­CLING PLANT OF THE YEAR IN SWEDEN

We congra­tu­late Stock­holm Vatten och Avfall! The biochar project of Sweden’s largest water and waste manage­ment company is deco­rated with another award. It was appointed as the best recy­cling plant of the year by the Swedish recy­cling industry. With the PYREG tech­no­logy, the muni­cipal company is refi­ning urban green waste into biochar since 2016, which is then reused in parks, private gardens and green spaces as a soil substrate.

“Working at Stock­holm Vatten och Avfall is contri­bu­ting in many diffe­rent ways to make Stock­holm one of the world’s most sustainable cities. The award is an acknow­led­ge­ment from the sustainable industry in Sweden that they value and appre­ciate what we are doing which feels amazing”, says Jonas Dahllöf (left), head of depart­ment at Stock­holm Vatten och Avfall. Toge­ther with Mattias Gustafsson (left) and Helena Liljestrand (middle) he received the award.

The award for the best recy­cling plant was awarded at the Swedish Recy­cling Gala 2018. The annual compe­ti­tion honors inno­va­tions, product impro­ve­ments, invest­ments and extra­or­di­na­rily achievements.
