From refrigerator to construction site
How we find hidden value
Material handling moves indoors
Repur Markskiva (ground plate) is a new and unique product manufactured from recycled polyurethane found in refrigerator insulation. This product insulates and dehumidifies foundation walls and floors, which leads to more environmentally sound buildings, healthier interior climates and better overall economy. It reduces energy consumption, while lowering operating costs and insurance premiums. Repur Markskiva is manufactured at the Stena Nordic Recycling Center, in Halmstad. The polyurethane is extracted from end-of-life refrigerators at the same location.
Many Stena Recycling customers are surprised that what seems like insignificant and even costly waste can become a source of income. Sometimes, value is increased just through better sorting processes. More often, increased value is the result of a professional analysis of the entire production process, carried out by Stena's experts. Nothing that can be recycled should be sent for landfill. Recycling alternatives can always be found.
In May, Denmark's Energy and Climate Minister, Lars Christian Lilleholt, cut the ribbon at the opening of a new state-of-the-art recycling facility in Grenaa. This new addition to Business Area Recycling’s industrial recycling system uses the latest technology to turn waste material from end-of-life cars into useful resources, instead of sending it to landfill sites. The recycled material can be used to manufacture new products and replace fossil fuels in the cement industry, for example.
In recent years, Stena Aluminum has implemented many investments that have increased production while reducing environmental impact. The most recent measure has been to move material handling indoors, which provides quality, safety and, not least, environmental benefits. The company is seeking to reduce the amount of run off water and operating noise at its facilities.

Stena Stål helps to realize plans, both large and small, throughout society. Every day, the company delivers large quantities of steel that contribute to complex infrastructure solutions, as well as servicing the construction and manufacturing industries. Its employees work closely with customers to understand the challenges they face by getting deeply involved in their operations. Customers receive exactly the material they need, when they need it. This is how Stena Stål makes more possible for its customers, both today and tomorrow.
The number of lithium-ion batteries in circulation is constantly increasing, as they are used in mobile phones, cars and many other products. Recycling, however, remains at a limited level. This is why a research project has brought together experts from vehicle and battery manufacturers, universities and the Stena Metall Group’s recycling companies. The aim of the project is to increase knowledge of efficient thermal recycling methods for current and future lithium-ion batteries.
Manufacturing industrial components requires expert knowledge and high precision equipment. Stena Components has both of these and is constantly investing in new technology. This year, an automated manufacturing cell was introduced, which provides even higher quality while increasing delivery reliability. The machine features in a short film about CNC processing.
By lifting the lid on factories and other operations, Stena Recycling can propose new and significantly more efficient waste management solutions. For example, after analysis and improvements were made at the Müller candle factory, in Poland, forklift truck transportation was decreased by 62 percent and the cost of waste management by 40 percent. Optimizing the placement of waste bins and reducing traffic within the factory, improved the working environment.
