InSinkErator has supplied its food waste disposers to Oceanhamnen housing development in Helsingborg, Sweden.
The first phase of the project, which aims to be an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable urban development, comprises 350 residential apartments each featuring InSinkErator’s Evolution 100 food waste disposers.
A major aspect of the project is its new and unique sewerage system, which collects waste through three separate wastewater streams. With the help of InSinkErator, food waste is directed to RecoLab, a specially designed wastewater treatment facility, to reduce greenhouse gases in the area by 50%.
Anne Kaarlela, marketing communications and customer service manager for Europe at InSinkErator, said: “We are thrilled to be part of the Oceanhamnen project, providing residents with a hygienic and sustainable solution to managing their food waste, while also ensuring the food waste generates biogas instead of producing methane in landfill.”
