More effecient energy use in industries

Sofia Klugman has worked with the EU projects So What, Retrofeed and Pulp and Fuel on energy effenciancy and waste product management in industries.

Selling residual heat is a win-win situation: less cooling is needed at the industries, and heating of properties can take place without the supply of fuels that have a negative environmental impact and volatile prices.

Circular flows from the start

By building an international network in the IRISS project the goal is sustainably designed materials, products and processes. Project leader Emma Strömberg is the hub of consortium of actors in private and public organisations.

A key aspect of the EU Green Deal is the shift from linear to circular flows. The results of these projects will lead to recommendations to the European Commission.
