From NostreSol we collect examples of good practices with the environment that are being carried out in the world. The case of Sweden, the country that turns trash into electricity, is a clear example of efficiency, sustainability and intelligence.
For a few years now, Sweden has become one of the countries with the greatest environmental awareness. Swedes recycle 99% of their waste, reusing it to replace fossil fuels with them. Its system is so efficient that it even imports garbage from other countries to power their energy-producing incineration plants, called WTE.
To carry out this intelligent process the fundamental thing is that the population has a high degree of responsibility and are aware. This is because it is the citizens themselves who are responsible for optimally separating the waste by colors.
Later, when they reach WTE plants, these bags are separated through optical detectors, which is known as Optibag technology, capable of classifying them.
The country already has at least 32 WTE plants, capable of degenerating energy through the gases that are emitted in the incineration process, becoming a technology that produces heat for 800,000 households.
However, Sweden is a country that is aware that it would be best to avoid generating more rubbish. But they have been able to harness waste to generate energy efficiently and cleanly, being a great example for the rest of the countries of the world.
As you have seen by the example of Sweden, most of the work to achieve a more responsible consumption is ours: of the citizens. That’s why, at Nostresol, we provide you with several ways so you can switch to responsible consumption. Do not hesitate to contact us to request information without any commitment.
