An introduction to some of our strongest actors
Industry Park of Sweden (IPOS) is an industrial park in the southern part of Helsingborg. Here several companies work together to create an industrial symbiosis, generating increased competitiveness through reduced environmental impact. The industrial park is owned and run by Kemira Kemi, but there are also more than 15 additional companies established there, participating in the symbiosis. You find the companies in the park here.
The Industry Park of Sweden is the perfect place for establishing new cost-effective facilities that fit into our existing infrastructure.
Nordvästra Skånes Renhållning (NSR) handles the region’s municipal and industrial solid waste. As mentioned earlier it is owned by the municipality of Helsingborg together with five surrounding regions: Bjuv, Båstad, Höganäs, Åstorp and Ängelholm. Their main function is to collect existing waste, sort it and either produce biogas, take care of recycled and reusable material, send the burnable waste to incineration, or, as a last resort, place it in landfills.
Öresundskraft is one of the biggest energy companies in Sweden. It is owned by the municipality of Helsingborg and consists of six production plants in Helsingborg and four in Ängelholm. The most important plants are Åkerslund, Filbornaverket and Västhamnsverket. Filbornaverket is one of the most modern plants in Europe and has very low emissions. These plants supply Helsingborg with the required district heat, district cooling and electricity.
Nordvästra Skånes Avlopp och Vatten (NSVA) is responsible for all activities related to water and sanitation in the region, and is owned by six municipalities: Bjuv, Båstad, Helsingborg, Landskrona, Svalöv and Åstorp. In Helsingborg, NSVA operates one of the largest wastewater treatment plants in Sweden, Öresundsverket.
