Greater Bio

In the Danish-Swedish project Greater Bio, we investigated how to create value from residual biomass that exists in municipalities and which today is often a problem and a cost, e.g. grass clippings from roadsides, seaweed on beaches and organic waste from households. We investigated new ways of collecting the biomass and which of the biomasses can be used to produce energy and new materials and which provide profitability. Insulation, production of biogas and biochar as well as biochar as a replacement for cement in concrete have been included in the project worked on.


The work has resulted in a publication with recommendations for municipalities that are interested in working with residual biomass. A biomass tool has also been developed that provides an overview of a municipality's biomass, and which is also a tool for planning and assessing climate-wise good handling of biomass.

Testbed for green-blue solutions - Blue Green City Lab
The projectTestbed for green-blue solutions aimed to evaluate both established and unproven blue-green solutions. It was done through the test bed Blue Green City Lab. The test bed is not a specific physical facility, we look upon the whole of Malmö City as a test bed. In the project, we worked on installing blue-green pilots in various places in the city, which we evaluated.

In the project, Blue Green City Lab matched developers and property owners with suppliers of solutions. The test bed also offered advice, training and the development of care plans.

The participating partners have been running the project since January 2022Increased implementation of functional blue-green solutions in the sustainable city.

The intelligent energy and resource system of the future - FUTURE
The project aimed to demonstrate how future energy and resource systems can become more intelligent and circular. The work was done with the help of seven innovative case studies where the project developed and tested different technologies, tools or business models within sustainable energy and resource use. FUTURE was a partnership between companies, universities, municipalities and regions in the Greater Copenhagen geography,

Low Temperature District Heating for the Baltic Sea Region (LowTemp) 
In the LowTemp project, involved partners worked to make district heating more sustainable in the countries around the Baltic Sea. The project worked for the installation of the so-called fourth generation district heating network, which is characterized by the distribution of low-temperature heat in insulated pipes with smaller pipe dimensions. They also looked at the possibility of introducing heat from geothermal energy, solar heat and waste heat from industrial processes into the district heating system.

Geographical client network for innovation procurement in Scania
The project formed a network for innovation procurement in Skåne. Working methods, methods and goals for the network were established. In 2020, a first case was carried out that had the character of a pilot that was applied to a procurement carried out under the auspices of the city of Malmö.

Northern Connections
Northern Connections built on concrete projects with actual investments that gave companies direct contacts with owners of needs. The projects were presented at events, Living Labs, where companies could pitch their products and solutions to both private and public actors. The owners of the needs got an overview of what is available on the market and companies got business opportunities.

Living Labs were carried out in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Germany, Holland, Belgium and Scotland. Sweden's contribution to Living Lab was the city of Gothenburg's fossil-free preschool, Hoppet. Several Swedish companies had products and solutions implemented in the preschool.
