Biond supplies municipalities and companies with the development, operation and commercial management of plants for circular waste management. The company is running two biocircular facilities at present; one near Helsingborg and one in Sävsjö. Biond also owns a district heating plant in Helsingborg which produces around 3.5 GWh of green district heating each year. Biogas from a nearby landfill site is used to produce district heating which is then sold on to households in the region.
The company’s facilities in Helsingborg and Sävsjö receive around 220,000 tonnes of organic waste every year; sorted organic household waste, industrial waste from catering services and food producers, and waste from slaughterhouses and farms. What was previously a waste facility can now be regarded as a modern biocircular industry where Biond takes responsibility for the entire chain, from processing of waste to refinement and production of new products for transport, industry, farming and consumers. And all while emissions are being reduced, nutrients are being returned to the cycle and fossil fuels are being removed from the systems.
