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.
