Stockholm is one of Europe’s fastest growing metropolitan regions. This growth brings opportunities but also presents major challenges. Demands for housing, energy, infrastructure and waste management are growing, and to meet these demands, new, smart, well-thought-out solutions are essential.

To rise to this challenge, E.ON is working with waste management company Ragn-Sells in Högbytorp, integrating material and energy recovery in a unique, efficient and sustainable way, generating electricity, heat, biogas and bio-fertiliser from waste products.

The E.ON plant in Högbytorp contributes to sustainable growth by transforming something nobody wants – waste – into something everybody needs – energy and nutrients.

E.ON produces and delivers energy to around one million clients in the Nordics. In Högbytorp, E.ON built a recycling plant which increases their production of renewable and recovered energy in the Stockholm area by 50 percent. In tandem with that, E.ON built a 24,5 km-long transit pipeline connecting their grids and carrying high pressure and high temperature.
