Create high-quality recycled raw materials
Over the years, we have successfully developed advanced recycling processes to produce consistently high-quality recycled raw materials for a global market. And as our investment in new recycling processes increases, so does our ability to produce higher quality recycled raw materials in ever greater volumes. One of our biggest investments is our flagship facility – Stena Nordic Recycling Center. Here, we recycle the most complex products and materials such as electronics, cars, batteries, cables and plastics from all over the world.
Since 2016 our recycling rate has increased by 30%, thanks to our investment in advanced recycling technology at Stena Nordic Recycling Center. This has resulted in more valuable material moving up the waste hierarchy and less being lost in energy recovery or ending up in landfill. We have also invested heavily in advanced recycling processes at our facilities in Denmark, Poland and Italy, which enables us to recycle more complex end-of-life products.
We have also made huge progress within battery recycling thanks to our ground-breaking new battery recycling facility, also located in Halmstad. Here, it will be possible to recycle 98% of lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles. Batteries from smart devices, power tools, domestic appliances and other electronic products can also be treated.
The goal is to ensure high-quality raw materials from used batteries, which can then be reintroduced back into the loop. This process will produce recycled plastic and aluminium but also, most importantly, high-quality black mass – the extracted critical resources including lithium, cobalt and nickel.
Through investments like Stena Nordic Recycling Center and our new battery recycling facility, we can solve your sustainability challenges.
