Sustainability boost for Stockholm through combined head and power

The Swedish capital, Stockholm, is to significantly boost its sustainable development through the building of thermal waste combined heat and power facility.Stockholm

The €250 million (à‚£218.9m)à‚ thermal waste recycling facility will produce electricity, heat and biogas and will be made up of a combined heat and power (CHP) facility and a biogas plant, adjoined by a large recycling centre owned by Ragn-Sells, Sweden’s largest waste management operation.

Materialsà‚ unable toà‚ be recycled at this plantà‚ will be sent to one of the other facilitiesà‚ and usedà‚ to create energy and organic fertiliser for agriculture.

E.ON‘s remote heating network will be integrated into the greater Stockholm area while older generation facilities, such as the three thermal power stations in the area,à‚ will be taken out of operation.

The biogas facility is planned to come online in 2018 andà‚ the CHPà‚ plant is expected to be operational inà‚ 2019.
