Energy infrastructure company Nevel and Trioworld start cooperation to utilise excess heat from Trioworld´s production process in the Smålandsstenar district heating network in Sweden. The excess heat generated covers the requirements of the entire network, thus enabling circular economy and emission savings.

Trioworld is a leading polyethylene solutions expert that manufactures packaging and protective film products in Smålandsstenar, Sweden. Trioworld’s production process generates a considerable volume of excess heat that otherwise goes unused. Thanks to the cooperation with Nevel, this heat can now be used to provide smart and sustainable energy at the Smålandsstenar production facility. This benefits everyone involved and the environment.

– The collaboration helps us execute our strategy of using industrial excess heat and working towards a circular society. It also enables us to expand and grow our business in Smålandsstenar, says Stefan Johnsson, Head of Sales and Investments at Nevel.

Nevel is investing in two heat pumps that will be installed at Trioworld’s production facility to harness the excess heat. The high volume of energy from Trioworld makes it possible for the residual heat from production to cover the needs of Smålandsstenar’s entire district heating network.

– Thanks to our collaboration with Nevel, we can reuse large volumes of energy. The urgency is palpable, as society as a whole is facing the challenge of using energy more efficiently and reducing emissions, says Fredrik Cato, Technology Manager at Trioworld.

The use of the excess heat is expected to begin in the second half of 2023.
