From 3 to 7.5 tonnes. The load weight of each container is expected to increase by this amount due to a new customized, automated solution for compressing and loading corrugated cardboard at Volvo Cars in Göteborg. It is estimated that this will halve road transportation, which reduces congestion for Volvo. This is a solution that offers both economic and environmental benefits.
Lifting straps, or slings, are used to lift heavy objects, such as large steel components. Millions of these are used across Europe every year. Despite being expensive, they need to be replaced frequently and often end up at waste incineration facilities. Are there better ways to take care of the worn out slings? Stena organized a workshop that asked experts to contribute ideas for sustainable solutions.
This year, one of Stena Oil’s chartered ships was approved to help EU authorities clean up oil spills in Nordic waters. Stena Oil won the contract after an extensive procurement process, carried out by the EMSA (European Maritime Safety Agency). A great deal of work has been undertaken to train the crew and customize the vessel with decontamination equipment. The ship was approved, after successful trials and a careful inspection, in the summer of 2016.
When complex products, such as cars, are recycled, a difficult-to-sort mix of textiles, rubber, plastic and metal is left over. At the Stena Nordic Recycling Center a new process has been developed which refines this residue into high-quality fuel, instead of sending it to landfill sites. Trials are being conducted with Heidelberg Cement, where the fuel can help reduce their consumption of fossil fuels. The fuel can also be used for heat or electricity generation.
a new level
More efficient resource management for foundry
The Stena Nordic Recycling Center is the Group's largest industrial investment ever. In collaboration with customers and other partners, we are taking recycling to a whole new level. Having so many automated processes at one site creates an efficient, industrial hub with the capacity to recycle more material from industry as well as other waste from society.
Our recycling facilities receive many flat screens that still work. As it is possible to use these in new products, our re-use department removes them from electronic appliances and checks that they are functioning properly. They are packed in shockproof packaging and sent to electronics manufacturers, where they can live on in new products - a smart, sustainable use of resources.
Recycling aluminum is a cornerstone of the collaboration between Stena and the Nordsjællands Metalstøberi foundry in Denmark. Their production of high-quality parts for the automotive industry results in aluminum residues that are recycled and can be reused in their manufacturing process. Focusing on environmentally sound waste management and the recycling of aluminum has saved time and is an efficient use of resources.
Only a fraction of the rare earth metals found in computers, mobile phones and other products are currently recycled. Stena is participating in the EU-funded REE4EU project which aims to find sustainable recycling solutions for these important materials. Manufacturers, researchers and recycling companies are working together to find ways of recycling rare earth metals, which are vital for the continued production of electronic products.
